Lewy Body Dementia Awareness Bracelets

I did a web search for Lewy Body Dementia bracelets and all that I could find were Alzheimers and Parkinson's Awareness Bracelets.

Lewy Body Dementia is the 2nd most common dementia after Alzheimers but almost no-one knows what it is.  Since we are living with it with my Dad, Jenna and I thought it would be appropriate to create our own bracelets for some very special people in our lives.  We combined the silver for Parkinsons with  the blue from Alzheimers and added forget me not flowers and a heart. 
We still have some supplies so if you would like to help us in our awareness campaign let us know.

Fairy tale friends

I think this stamp set is from Hero Arts.  I purchased it when I was planning to do a fairy tale castle book for Jenna but she is now 14 and I don't think she would enjoy it now as much as when I originally planned to do it.  Anyway a fun image to colour.

Love his Fairy Stamp

I love this Fairy stamp so much I purchased it twice.  I passed one set to a friend so she can enjoy her as much as I did.

Thank you card

I've had this stamp set for years and its the first time I have used it.

Another favourite retired Stampin Up Set

Still having fun using forgotten stamps, papers and embellishment with our new Copic Markers

another baby card

This baby card uses one of my favourite retired Stampin Up sets.  I haven't used him for a while but I'm sure he'll make a comeback in my most frequently used stamps.

Baby Cards

Jenna and I have been playing with our new Copic Markers to colour some forgotten stamp images.    I used Sure Cuts a Lot software with files I downloaded from      to cut the lacey mats.   Embellishments purchased at the dollar store finished off the cards.   I will post some other examples in the next few days.
These cards used the same image from a Close to My Heart Easter set.
