Be Inspired #104

Be Inspired #104  Challenge is in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness week...  I have entirely different feelings about this than the average person does... I don't feel that this is something that you do once a year... or even every six months... I feel that you do it everyday of your life... you eat properly, take care of yourself... and you generally don't have to worry about that kind of thing...  I copied an article for you to read... as these are very important to the health of YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY...  So please read it.. take what is important for you and make some life style changes TODAY... not tomorrow... TODAY...



The list of preventions is a daily thing in my life... and I will not bore you with it... but think about prevention vs. just going for an exam or putting your destiny into someone else's hands.  Create your own power and take care of YOURSELF NOW...

Okay... so here are my cards for this occasion...


This card is representative of all that I just stated... LOVE YOURSELF... Love your Veggies... eat properly...  Green and pink are colors for love... so I used them on this card... the background embossing is naturally a Cuttlebug folder... and the hearts are new from Spellbinders... I double embossed them with Utee Ultra Powder so they are thick...



Here you can see a close up of the hearts and the GREEN veggies... This heart was sent to us from a seed company... My husband brought it into me, as he thought I could use it in my art... BINGO... I was working on these cards... so it was perfect timing... Thanks Seed Exchange... I really love this veggie heart...

I hope that you realize also that eating veggies is very important... eating organic is also very much a part of that... and also eating them raw is so much better for you...
Every meal a nice salad of raw veggies, a little Braggs Amino Acid... (which is a very nice solution that you can get at any Health food store... and it is like a diluted soy sauce... but oh so much better... I use that with a little lemon or vinegar... that is it... all these salad dressings are not healthy for you... light and easy and let this nice raw food nourish your body and soul... they will love it... and you will really start to love it too..

This card was made for many many reasons...
I finally found these special little plastic flaps on the back of the embossing plus folders... so I was able to use it as a stencil... YEAH!!!

Then I wanted to do a card with these yummy Victorian colors... Burgundy, tans/light browns and cream..

So when I got started   I used the Embossing Plus Folder by Cuttlebug  called Brocade window... and used Antique Linen by Ranger on the stenciling of it..  Then I needed something for the back to fill in the hole... so I used Kassie's Brocade for that... and I used chalks on that to create a rich color to match the burgundy of the main paper...

Then I used some Spellbinder dies to create the medallion... and Just Rite Stamps for the center...

Okay... then the FLOWERS!!!
LOVE my flowers... love to make them... just LOVE THEM... real or paper...

I made these with Cream card stock.. and Tim Holtz template of Tattered Flowers... Each flower has 5 layers of paper... and each layer is crinkled and then wrapped around the precious one... when the flower is all together and dried, I used Antique Linen ink and added color to the edges of the pedals... just slightly...  I added a yummy double sided satin bow... And some brown pearls... wow... I really enjoyed making this card... and hope that you enjoy them...

Here is a close up of the stamping so you can read the saying... it is very powerful for this
challenge...

That is why I used it...

The colors... rich pinks...
think of yourself as the most special person in the whole wide world... as you truly are to YOU... 

There is NO ONE ... .NO ONE that is more important than YOU...

REMEMBER that...
Everyone would miss you, and miss everything that you stand for in this life...
SO PLEASE go make a nice organic raw salad.

One last view of this card... so you can see the roses side ways... they are so very pretty... 





Okay...


So there you have it all..
Now please go to the Cuttlebug Challenge and create a link to your card that you have made for this week..

WE would love to see it...
Thanks so very much for joining us... 
Have a great week... and ENJOY ALL THE RAW VEGGIES... I know that I will.

See you soon... Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie

  5. Beautiful cards, Bonnie! Thanks for sharing the info about the organic veggies. We have totally reconfigured our food portions to have mostly fruits and vegetables now. I can't believe how much better we feel. Still working on Billy although he loves the fuit part.

    As usual you have created amazing cards.
    Had to smile as it took me awhile to find the flap and lift it up so I could emboss too.
    Love your thinking Bonnie.
