Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! World Showcase Blog Hop.  Are you excited to be here?  I know I am!  I’m very excited to be part of this and to show you the project I created.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just come from Marisol’s blog.  What did you think of that cute Scratch & Sniff card?  Wasn’t that a fun summer card?

If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem as you can start at any point. All the Designer’s Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the super projects we have for you.  At the bottom of each post there are links to the previous and next blog.

For my project I decided to use the Strength & Hope stamp set in the Summer Mini Catalog.  Remember if you purchase this stamp set (or the digital download) Stampin’ Up! will donate $2 from your purchase to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Stampin’ Up! started their  Making a Difference Program in 2003 and partnered with the Ronald McDonald House Charities which continues today.  Stampin’ Up! has partnered with various other organizations over the year in an effort to make a difference in the world around us.

Now here is my project which will surely inspire you….

I have had this luminary idea in my mind for several weeks and it came together just beautifully don’t you think?
It is soft and inspirational.  I remember when I walked in the Relay for Life for my mom (she had Colon Cancer) we had luminaries surrounding the track as we walked.  That has been a handful of years ago but I always think of those luminaries and they gave me the inspiration to make one with this stamp set.  These would be beautiful on all the tables at a fundraiser event.  Here is another view of the front –
