THE ART OF GIVING: Thanks for stopping by and getting involved in this great opportunity. In starting off the new year, Christine and I decided to put together a challenge blog that would not only provide you with inspiration and free goodies, but to also let you know about the many ways we can "PAY IT FORWARD" to others in our simple and GIGANTIC ways. We hope that in combining both inspiration and giving to others, we can all make this world a better place, one layout, card, and gesture at a time. Thank you for taking this journey with us.

Time for a challenge !

This time around our sponsor is none other than the wildly adored PINK PAISLEE. Yes that's right, you heard us Pink Paislee was generous enough to sponsor us. 3 lucky winners will win some paper from their new lines. Check these out !

Wouldn't you like to win some? Wouldn't you like to know how to win some? Well, it is simple.

You may already have noticed that we take a special interest in the Organization, Autism Speaks. Christine, one of our creators, has an autistic son. Every year she walks with her team "We Can" to benefit Autism Speaks. This year along with many other fundraisers, we will be running a card drive to benefit Autism Speaks. If you are interested in helping out, this is what you will need to do:
Create a card or many cards to donate to our card drive.Any kind of theme will do..birthday, anniversary, sympathy, new baby, congrats etc. These cards will be sold at a fundraising event to benefit Autism Speaks. 100% of the profits will be donated !

Anyone that is interested in participating in the Create & Donate Card Drive, can email us at We will be more than happy to give you any additional information that you would like. Also, please email us if you would like the address where to send the cards.
Once you make your card/cards email us a pic of them and inquire where to send them. Remember to include an envelope with the card ;0) Every person who participates will be put in a random drawing to win some Pink Paislee Goodies ! We know that you've got those scraps just laying around waiting to be loved. We will place your name/screen name on this post as cards and names come in. Names will be added daily or as the cards arrive. Please be sure to include your name and contact info with the cards that you send. It is that easy! Want to take a chance at winning something fantastic while paying it forward..this is an easy way to do it!

This card drive will run from Sunday, Feb. 15th to Saturday March 15th. Winners will be announced Sunday, March 16th.
Just as a little are a few layouts and cards that our team put together so that you could get a better look at the paper collections :) Aren't they YUMMY?!
