Crafty Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crafty Friends Who Care blog hop. We are so glad you could join us for Day 2 of this very special hop. We have more fabulous projects for you. But the most important thing about this is to raise awareness about bone marrow donations to help Leukemia patients.

Bone marrow donation technology has come a long way, and is now as simple as giving blood. So we are trying to raise awareness and get people to register at
to be a bone marrow donor. And why are we doing this your might ask? To help a friend a fellow crafter, Liz Decade. Liz is battling 2 different forms of acute Leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. We are hoping that this hop will help her to find a match. You can see her story at
Even if you are not a match for Liz, you can still help her. You see bone marrow registrations drives are expensive, you have to pay for each person who is registered, and Liz is trying to raise money for bone marrow drives and medical expenses (it costs a lot of money to get a transplant). You can donate to Liz at All of the money donated will go to bone marrow drives or medical expenses.

And we have some wonderful sponsors who have donated prizes for our hop.
Sweet Stamping Treats Digital Stamps, Trendy Twine, MB Treasurista, Paper Piecings by Nikki, Inspired Stamps, My Pink Stamper, Peachy Keen Stamps and Market Street Stamps have all donated prizes to this hop.

Welcome ladies to the Mixed Media Blog Hop. This hop will not have a long list because it involves a little more work and it is going to broaden everyone's creative by introducing everyone to the world of mixed media along with altered which of course everyone is familiar with.

For those who may not know what it is: Mixed media uses things like -
  • Paints
  • Gesso
  • Gel Mediums
  • Molding Paste
But it is a simple as using glimmer mist on a tag or using game pieces and alcohol inks.Everyones take on it is different and I hope you enjoy all the creations and GOOD LUCK to the winner!!

I altered an acrylic tag for my project. I used some Modge Podge to glue on some red cardstock that i had run through the cuttlebug. I used some white flowers by petaloo and a rosette with a pink heart rhinestone to embellish it. I also used some twine.
