Share The Love Blog Hop - Can We Change The World Today??

Good Friday to you all – let’s help change the world today!
LoveBug Creations is pleased to be a part of the Share The Love Blog Hop being sponsored by Paper Piecings by Nikki. We are having a short hop to celebrate sharing love! Nikki has so many cute paper piecings and we want to show them off! If you see something you'd like, visit Nikki's page to make a purchase!

AND - Here’s the exciting part - A dollar from every sale goes to a ton of different charitable organizations:
A Broader Way, American Red Cross, Breast Cancer Awareness, JDRF, Make A Wish Foundation, Operation Smile, Partnership For A Drug Free America, PAWS, Save The Children, and St. Jude. 

This is how we share the love!!

to make a project to link up on either Nikki's Blog or her facebook page. And as a bonus there’s blog candy! Nikki’s blog has all the particulars for this.

The line up for the Share The Love event is:

Mama LoveBug is up first – "Always Remember" -you know many people like to talk about sharing, but Nikki goes beyond that – she actually does something, so when she devised this plan to “share the love”, I was totally on board with the idea.  One of her darling pattern piecings with patchwork animals called You Are So Loved just seemed so right for me to make a pocket card.

I took the piecings and fussy cut them, then stamped a cause ribbon in various spots on the animals, used gel pens and stickles for accent, and created the base, the insert, and the pull tag on the insert with a larger pink ribbon for Breast Cancer Awareness.  I finished it off with "thanks for your support" stamp from Pink By Design.

The insert

And the base

For my project (Kimi) I wanted to make a layout using the "Cuddly Cupids Pattern Set"!
