What about love?

Now that I've got your attention with my little candy picture, lol............I urge you to read on. And yes, there is a card in here somewhere!

Stacie at All Things Crafty is asking a favor.
A favor full of love!
You can read all the details of her post HERE....and participate if you, because that's what it's all about.
Stacies' husbands Aunt Jeanne was diagnosed with breast cancer just before Christmas.
Now this is not a blogger friend.
She is not on any DT's.
 She does not have 2000+ followers;
however, more importantly,
she is someone's Aunt.
Someone's loved one.
Stacie is asking for homemade items/cards for Aunt Jeanne to help lift her spirits.
Stacie is also offering up a bit of candy to those who send items & those who help spread the word.
You see my candy pic at the top. It is labeled 'for Stacie' cuz this will be added to her already ongoing candy. If you wish, you too can donate to help build up the candy pot & help sweeten the deal. 
This RAK on Stacies' part is amazing & I'm glad to say she is one of my bestest blogging buddies around! 


My card today, focuses around LOVE as well. 
YUP, it's a Tilda & Edwin creation.  
This is the first time I am using this stamped image from Mrs. Sugar.
OOooooooooo before I forget [cuz my card suits the theme]----YOU HAVE ONE MORE WEEK TO GET YOUR ENTERIES INTO THE FAIRY FUN FRIDAY CHALLENGE where the theme is  FOR A SWEETHEART.

Except for the raffia lace, all the ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbons.
I embossed the bottom red part of the card with hearts, but you can't see it very well.
I colored with watercolor pencils, baby oil & blending stumps

Thanks for stopping by today!

By entering all these challenges, I hope the word gets out there about Stacies request I talked about at the top of my post! Take Care.
