Having a child who has been through lengthy hospital stays, too many tests to count, surgeries, medication that made him quite ill, chemo and a bone marrow transplant, I know how ‘a wish’ can provide strength and the promise of a brighter future. Planning a trip to Disney can help a child cope with the next poke, round of chemo or scan in the big donut (that would be a CT scan). Henri’s own wish is being granted this year and we’re making that special trip to Disney World in November!! Taylored Expressions will donate $7.00 to the Make a Wish Foundation.
If you’re new to Taylored Expressions stamps and the Giving Tree sets, TE charitable stamp sets are sold as a sheet of rubber and will need to be trimmed before using. This reduces the cost of manufacturing and allows Taylor to donate even more to charity. Taylor gives great tips here.
So what do I have to show you! I’ve got two cards today. I used images from both Make a Wish and Borderlicious (a coordinating set of borders that are also great on their own) for this one:
Masking is kind of my thing! I took the middle tier from the cake to serve up one fabulous slice of dazzling pink cake. Behind the main image, which I coloured in copics and prismacolors/gamsol, I’ve used the argyle, line up of fondant balls and sentiment borders from Borderlicious. If you notice that my bow is better than usual, I used my Bow Easy. I can’t believe how well it works!!
Next, I wanted to use the cake from the set for an anniversary, wedding or other special occasion other than a birthday so I used a grey, silver and blue colour scheme and topped the cake with the heart in the set. I’ve separated the sentiment, using “Wishing you a special day” on the front and “filled with happiness and everything you enjoy!” inside. I used Taylor’s tiny twinkles to highlight the cake and I have to say that embellie gellie is a very good thing!
