Day 2 - I Have a Thing For Pink
I have a thing for pink! I love how some companies help to sponsor Breast Cancer awareness & raise money for it by putting out unique products. Last year I found a neat pair of Fiskars scissors that I just had to have. I also bought a pair of scissors for my sister as well as gave her some cool pink pj’s to wear in the hospital. Then I ended up finding this adorable pink shoe scotch tape dispenser that I had to have too. The year before I bought all the women close to me pink umbrella’s.This year I spotted some new pink items to add to my collection…a pretty pink pen set by Paper Mate, an adorable purse pop up note dispenser by Post Its for my desk and a Pink Fire Safe by SentrySafe. I’ve been wanting to buy a fire safe for some time now to keep my valuable papers, insurance policies, photo’s, birth certificates, etc in. I spotted this one on Friday when I was out shopping & knew I had to have it. Not only was it PINK, the price was right and buying it also donated to Breast Cancer Research. Every penny helps when it comes to research. Not only am I helping a great cause, I’m also getting some cute items to inspire me & to add to my studio.On another note...I’ve had some enquiries about the stamp set that I used for my cards. I’ve scanned it & am posting a picture of it so that you can see it. It is such a beautiful stamp set & I couldn’t resist it. It’s acrylic & made by Paper Inspirations. I think that I bought it from Addicted to Rubber Stamps sometime last year or the year before, I really can’t remember. Here’s a photo of the stamp set & another card that I made for my sister when she was going through her battle with Breast Cancer using it.I also have a stamp set from Stampin Up that I use for cards for breast cancer called “Hope Is” (retired). It has the ribbon stamp, Believe, Love & a verse “Hope is…believing in a brighter tomorrow.” Here’s a card that I made using this stamp set.I hope that you’ve enjoyed today’s post. Have a great day & be sure to check out the other blogs as several will be posting something new for today. TFL!
