GIna K Design October Release Inspiration Hop, Day 1!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our inspiration hop for Gina K Designs!! Up today we have two stamp sets to showcase for you! Up first is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called Basket Additions...another set to add to you basket sets of Melanie's!! Here is what I have done:



I decided to do a Fall theme card...the temps here in my part of Texas are finally reflecting that it is Fall! yay! My favorite time of year! See that dp? That comes in the new StampTV kit too, it is GORgeous! (We will be showcasing that set on Monday!)

Up next is Theresa Momber's newest set called Strength and Hope...and to top it off, Theresa will be donating ALL of the proceeds from the first month of sales to cancer research! How awesome is that?! Here is my creation with this set for today:



Being that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month I decided to make a pink ribbon tree! This is something very close to lots of us. Statistics say that 1 in 3 woman will be affected by some type of cancer and 1 in 2 men! And for those that have been touched by this ugly disease already, HOPE is always something you have to have, plain and simple!

Ok, ready for more awesome inspiration from my fellow DT? Here are the links and be sure to leave comments along the way for more chances to win a fabulous Gina K. Designs grab bag filled with a least a dozen individual precut images!

Donna said...

Wonderful cards, just beautiful, love the richness of the green basket, personally I would never have thought of making the basket green, but it looks great, right away I always think baskets are brown, but they do come in every color, I have to remember to go outside the normal.
Thanks for sharing!!
