It's nice to know we have friends that are there for you through thick and thin, that when times get rough they'll be there with a smile, a word of encouragement or with a shoulder to cry on. And every once in awhile, it's nice to BE that friend. Not because you feel an obligation. Not because the friend has asked. Not even because the friend has suffered a tragedy. Just because sometimes, we all need a little bit of support.
This is one of those times for our friend (and design team member) Gabby Arriaza. Gabby and her family have come upon a hardship that is proving to be more than they can handle on their own. You can read more about it on her blog.
Since Gabby is one of the rockinest stampers out there, Katie asked Moody Girl designer, Cynthia about designing a rockstar moody girl. This image is the only moody available as a digi stamp! Gabby herself has also supplied some word art and we have another digi sentiment available. You can check out and purchase these stamps here.
I loved working with this image and it's theme. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder with shimmery silver coardstock to give that metal look - looks even more awesome IRL. And I was excited to find some metal scrap letters in coordinating colors that I just so happened to have in my stash!! Finally, for some more sparkle, another large glittery chipboard letter - again in a coordinating color - yippee!! I think this would be a fun card for a teenage girl - what do you think?
Proceeds from all sales will all go directly to the Arriaza family. Thanks for considering this and for time and time again helping us to help others.
