As the month draws to a close, I want to thank you all for sending in cards to the family of Baby Mason.  You do still have time to get cards made and sent in, so please feel free to do so.  I won't send the box out until the second week of July.  That will give everyone time to get their cards sent in.

This is a very special family and they really need our love and support. Please take a few moments and join the I Feel the Love Project in creating handcrafted cards to send to the parents of Baby Mason to let them know that we are here to give them the support they need during this difficult time in their lives.

Happy Birthday Sidney

Welcome to Funky Cards

Happy Birthday Sidney! We want to wish you a very happy 13th birthday!  We miss you and wish we could be there to celebrate with you.

Sidney is a staff member for the North County Indians this summer, along with my mom and I.   The Indians are a Semi Pro baseball team that play near our hometown.  We have so much fun together.  Sidney is also a very good golfer.  This card was personalized just for her using the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge.  

Enjoy your special day Sidney!  See you soon.

CWC Wonderful Wednesday

Welcome to Funky Cards
CWC Wonderful Wednesday 

This week the ladies at My Paper Crafting World are teaming up with the I Feel the Love Project to design and create handcrafted greeting cards for the parents of Baby Mason.  Baby Mason was just six months old when his life was taken because the car he was riding in was struck by a drunk driver.  His grieving parents can really use our support and love as they go through this difficult time in their lives.  Please consider joining us this month as we take the time to show we care by sending and sharing our thoughts in the form of greeting cards.  This week my mom Cindy and I have both made cards to share with you.

Here is my mom's card.  She used the Kate's ABCs Cricut cartridge to create a vase full of flowers and added a sentiment that says, "God Bless You."


To give a bit of a pop, the flowers are 3D paper flowers with added gems in the middle. (click on the photo to enlarge.)

I used the Florals Embellish to create my card. 
The sentiment reads, "Praying for your comfort in this season of sadness."  The sentiment was paired with the greens, purples, and blues.  I thought these colors looked really soothing.  The card was embossed and inked and paper flowers were added for the finishing touches.
 
Please be sure to visit the My Paper Crafting World blog to see all the other thoughtful cards and projects the design team members have created for you this week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Graduation Day!!

Welcome to Funky Cards 

Today is the day!  My High School Graduation!


For those of you who have followed me from the beginning, you may remember that I was just 14 years old and just a Freshman in High School when I first started my blog.  

 After getting to know many wonderful, fabulous, and extremely talented crafters, I am now 18 years old and hours away from graduating high school.


Of course I wouldn't be me if I didn't do a little 
"crafting" to my cap.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you who have supported me these past four years.  The journey is just getting started and I look forward to many new adventures together.  God Bless you all.

Keep the Cards Coming!

Welcome to Funky Cards

The cards continue to arrive for Baby Mason's family, the June 2013 recipients of the I Feel the Love Project handcrafted cards.

With each card that arrives I am reminded that each day is a gift and one too many of us take for granted.  Remember, Baby Mason lost his life when a driver decided to drive drunk and then lose control of his car striking the car that Baby Mason and his family were riding in.  Please share your love and support for his grieving parents by taking a few moments to create a card to share with them.  They will be able to hold onto these treasures forever.  To find out where to send your cards, click HERE.

 Made by Ms. Sandi

If you aren't feeling creative you can help by making a small donation to the I Feel the Love Project, which is now a nonprofit, charitable corporation.  Your gift would allow us to purchase gift cards to send to our monthly recipients to purchase items such as food, clothes, gas, and other items that they may need.  100% of your donations go towards these items, as the I Feel the Love Project is run on a strictly volunteer basis.  You can make a donation online by clicking on the Donate icon on the right scroll bar, or learn more about donations by visiting our new website and clicking on the Donation Page, or clicking HERE.

We have launched a new website.  I would like 
to invite you to stop by and check it out.
Feel free to share this site with family and friends. 

Thank you for all your support!  
We couldn't do this without you!

Never Forget Baby Mason

   Welcome to Funky Cards


This month the I Feel the Love Project is highlighting a very special little angel, Baby Mason.  Baby Mason received his wings when he was just six months old.  Unfortunately, he was killed when the car he was riding in was struck by a drunk driver.  His family is devastated as you can well imagine.  At the time that this video was taken, Baby Mason was still in the hospital fighting for his life.


As Baby Mason's uncle states in the video, the actions of one person can have life changing consequences for a family.  The driver of the other car chose to drink and drive and that decision changed the Villarreal family forever. 

Although we cannot change the past, we can offer our support and love to help bring about a sense of peace, love, and compassion to this family.  Please join the I Feel the Love Project in creating handcrafted cards to send to the parents of Baby Mason to let them know that we are here to support them through this difficult time in their lives.

Submit your hand crafted card/s by June 3oth to:

1507 and Counting

Welcome to Funky Cards

WE DID IT!!  Or should I say you did it!  Again!  I never had any doubt that we would reach our goal of 1500 cards.  As the month drew to a close and the cards came in for Reggie and Ashley, the numbers grew and we collected a total of 30 cards for Reggie and Ashley bringing our total of cards for the I Feel the Love Project to 1507!!!  I am so happy right now.  

I just announced that because of your loyal following, the I Feel the Love Project is expanding and is now a nonprofit corporation.  This will allow the I Feel the Love Project to raise money so that we can do more for our monthly recipients.  We will be able to send them gift cards to help them with purchases they may need to make, i.e., gas, food, clothes... or maybe even just buy a special toy! 

I also just announced that we now have a new website: 


If you haven't had the chance to check it out yet, please do.

There will be a lot of news in the next few months so please stay tuned and be a part of this exciting, charitable, fabulous organization.  You will be happy you did!!  I am so grateful to all of you who have been with me so far! 

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Craft with Cutters Challenge #137

This week the ladies at My Paper Crafting World are celebrating the letter "S"  as we are crafting with Cricut cartridges that start with the letter "S."  This week my mom Cindy and I have both made cards to share with you.

Here is my mom's card: The inspiration for my project was easy!  


I just found out that my son, Dalton, earned a promotion. Dalton is now a Petty Officer 3rd Class in the U.S. Navy. Congratulations Dalton on a job well done and thank you for your service!

The anchor and sailor hat were cut from the 
Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge.  

The sentiment was generated using the Cameo.

My card, the second card, was made for a friend.


As you can probably guess, this card was made using the Sports Mania Cricut cartridge. This was a fun card to make and I liked the way it turned out!

Please be sure to visit the My Paper Craft World blog to see all the other adorable cards and projects the design team members have created for you this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
