My HOPE is built on nothing less...

So, my title my have given you a clue as to this month's theme HOPE! Whenever I hear that word my mind immediately begins to hum the old hymn,"MY hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteous." What an anchor to hold on too! I am thankful for the Christian heritage generations before ihave passed on to me. Another thought that "Hope" evokes is tied to my friend Maria and a group of ladies called Women of Hope. Maria founded this organization 10 years ago after fighting her own battle with Breast cancer. Their mission  is to educate, promote awareness and provide hope and encouragement  for individuals and their families coping with breast cancer. It's amazing what they have accomplished in our community. I wanted to use this opportunity to do something for them. These projects will be donated to WOH to use in the gift baskets they pass out to those  newly diagnosed with breast cancer.

Here's a group picture. I loved this Paper Pumpkin kit and thought it would be fun to do banners with hope on them. The banner hanging in the picture is the one off one of the cards on the left. It was made using the directions in the Paper Pumpkin kit. The other card I kind of did my own thing. It has one pennant with a heart from Sunshine Wishes thinlets and the word hope, I also stamped the always from the Time of Year hostess set.


I love my 3-d project. Ir's great when you have friends with addictions different than your own!
I can't throw away Crystal Light containers. I have boxes! I love peach tea! My friend Sharon loves Altoids! She gave me a big bag full of empty tins! This one is covered in a piece of the 2016-2018 DSP in Flirty Flamingo  on top and bottom. Then I added washi type around the edges top and bottom and the middle is a piece of Ruched Flirty Flamingo ribbon. I stamped hope is black from Watercolor Wishes and added a Bitty Butterfly in a piece of black DSP.

Because this is for the Women of Hope baskets, I added Peppermint Patties and peppermint hard candies. These are both helpful with upset tummy's!                     Here's the inside.
The says on the inside is from the stamp set Here for You( 142164 Clear).  It's one of the best stamp sets we've ever had for sayings for those going through difficult times.
And finally, don't forget We have awesome Blog Candy. So comment on each blog with the #SFAugHop to earn chances for the prizes. The winner will receive a gift from each Blog!

 I HOPE you have an awesome day. Be blessed and be a blessing to those around you. God Bless.

Thank you so much! I just ordered this bundle. I'm still for the UPS driver, but he's not magically appearing! Darn it! But now I have more to look forward too! And I just moved up the SU! ladder! Hooray for me! Anyhoo, this bundle has said a lot to me, (even with me not having it yet!, just think what it will say when I get it?).I like your cards, but, I love your tins. Sounds we're tea peas, I can't throw away a tin either. Now, thanks to you, I can cover them. So again, Thank YOU!
