"Hop" for Japan

I love the Hope for Japan stamp set, even more so because of the meaning behind it. Did you know that CTMH is donating 100% of the proceeds from this set to The American Red Cross for their efforts in Japan? They will produce as many sets as we can sell and they have put no cap on the amount they will donate.
I just think that is awesome!  If you have not yet ordered this set and want one please let me know. It is available through the month of April.

Here are the cards my card club made with this set last night. 

I wanted something bright "springy" so I did this color block one. The hearts are pop dotted so they stand out. Inside it says, "forever in my heart" . The sentiment is from Kanji phrases but I only used the English words because I think the characters are actually Chinese and not Japanese. The colors are Buttercup, Heavenly Blue, Sweet Leaf and Cotton Candy.

This on I created thinking it could be used for someone with breast (or any other kind of) cancer. I think the Hope sentiment and the wings fit that perfectly. Of course it needed to be pink so I used Blush and sponged around the image I stamped in black. I colored the flowers with the blush marker which is just a shade darker. The ruffle is made of paper from the Cherry-O pack and the sentiment is from Chard Chatter-Sympathy.

One of my fellow consultants has family in Japan and we are doing a card drive to send to children and seniors who have been affected by the earthquakes and tsunami. If you would like to donate cards please contact me at

If you buy the set from me and create 5 cared to donate I will even give you your choice of one item from the catalog at my cost (that's 22% off!) on any order placed in May.

Finally, if you have made cards with this set and would like to join the blog hop to share your creative inspiration click on the Mr. Linky link below.
