It's Time! and blog candy winner!

You can NOW purchase Whimsical Autumn from Gina K Designs!!! 100% of my proceeds will go to the Alzheimer's Association.

Here a are a few more cards made with the set:
For this one I water colored the basket of apples and used my Scor-Pal to create the texture for the background. I set off the sentiment with some faux stitching!
This one features the pussy willow vase. I used just the "friendship" part of the sentiment in the set to create the acetate tag. This card also uses the new BM (Black Market, people!) designer paper that Gina now carries!

I used liquid applique on the willows--just put a dot on each bloom and heated the applique with the heat tool and then I used my paper piercing tool to gently push the applique within the stamped image lines.
And here is that adorable squirrel grabbing the last apple for himself!

Thanks for all your overwhelming support. I am so excited about this set---and I hope to raise lots of money for the Alzheimer's Association!
PS--the winner of the blog candy is posted here!!!!
Thanks for stopping by!

I'm also sorry to hear about your grandma, but I do like that you are giving back to support this cause and I'm gonna head over to Gina's to support it as well!!!

Carolyn, I just purchased your set from GinaK because I read that 100% (WOW) of the proceeds are going to Alzheimer's Assoc. My dad suffered from this disease at an early age (we noticed at age 60 something was not right). He was diagnosed at age 65 and passed away at age 72. It was heart-wrenching watching him decline, as he was such an intelligent and fun-loving man. I miss hime every day and will think of him each time I use this set. Thanks so much for doing this!

BIG Hugs,
Lisa

All of your cards are so beautiful! What a wonderful job you have done on the stamps and best wishes for a great success with their sale.

I live on Social Security with very limited funds and if I had more financial resources I would order a set, myself.

I lost my mom in August 2006, she had dementia for the last three-to-four years of her life and even that was very sad and frustrating for both of us.

I was physically disabled, too, but I cared for her, her last five years as she was wheelchair confined. We had each other and that was a wonderful thing.

I am sorry for your loss.

Best wishes,

Cathy B.

I just came to your blog and saw this set and what you were doing with your proceeds, that is great!!! My mother was diagnosed in 1999 and it is just so hard to watch, she doesn't know us anymore. I had heard about Alzheimers, but until it happened to us and we have progressed through the changes that occur, I don't think I could of ever thought how terrible of a disease it really is. Thank you for what you are doing!!
