MS Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the MS (Mulitple Sclerosis) Blog Hop

 If you are coming from Linda at Fancy Framework then you are in the right place. If you are just randomly coming up on this post, please head back to Fancy Framework so that you can see ALL of the fun we have in store for you!

I first want to say that this hop is very close to home for me. My husband was diagnosed with MS in August of 2009. It was such a shock to our family and it has caused lots of struggles in my husbands daily life and in our family’s way of living. He was medically retired from the Navy and we struggle to make ends meet but we still try to stay as positive as we can.
This hop is very unique in that all the projects done by everyone on the hop will be auctioned off and all proceeds will go to the National MS Society. I would love to raise as much money as I can for this cause. The bidding will start at ten dollars. If you like my project and would like to put a bid on it please leave a comment under this post with the word BID and how much your bid is for. Bids will close on March 6th at 8PM. I will contact the winning bidder at that time and give you the details as to how you can make your payment directly to the National MS Society and how I will get the project to you. You can also make a donation to the National MS Society by following this link Donation Center for National MS Society

Now onto my project! For this hop the subject of each card was Movement. I chose to make a spinner card. This was my first time making one of these cards and I think they are such a cool idea for a card! I made a video to show the "Movement" in my card. It has bad lighting and no talking but it's just to show the coolness of the card. :)

Supplies used were the Plantin Schoolbook, Just Because and Everyday Paperdolls Cricut Cartridges, Stampin Up cardstock, DCWV cardstock, Peachy Keen Stamps, White Gell Pen (for the eyes), Black and Silver Ink, Silver Glittery embossing powder, Tiny Star Punch, Martha Stewart Glitter Glue, Glossey Accents and IROCK with the little yellow IROCK Gems.

To make the stars really shiny and glittery I first covered them in a yellow color of Martha Stewarts glitter glue. I let that dry for a few hours and then I went over that with Glossey Accents. Glossey Accents takes awhile to dry. I usually leave it overnite just to be on the safe side. I also used that same process on the words "Blast Off."

Thank you so much for checking out my post on the MS Blog Hop! Your next stop will be Glora at Gloras Crafts!!

Please stop by all the other ladies blogs and show some love. I'm sure they have some great projects and some great blog candy!!!

Here is the blog hop list just in case you get lost along the way. Happy Hopping!!

P.S. When I first started working on my project I totally forgot that our projects were being auctioned off. So here is a pic of my layout that I made that has "Movement" as the subject but I don't think anyone will want pictures of my son with his grandpa (my dad) on the motorcycle!! hahaha
