About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Fight Like a Girl

October is breast cancer awareness month and I have thrown together a quick card in honor of those who are suffering with, who have survived, or who have lost their battle with breast cancer.
Card base is just plain generic white cardstock. The sentiment is computer generated and colored with a Bic felt tip pen. I got the image from www.letmecolor.com. It is colored with a combination of sharpie marker and oil pencil. The pink paper clip is from my stash as is the silver ribbon charm that says hope.

I hope you like it.

Have a great Sunday!
