We're Stampin' Out Alzheimer's!

As you may already know, Jen Tapler has set up an amazing event called Stampin' Out Alzheimer's  to raise funds for the American Alzheimer's Association. This is a week long event where members will have access to freebies, challenges, classes, contests, downloads and prizes in a variety of papercrafting categories. To help out in this event I'm co-hosting a card challenge with Jodi Collins and for each card you create for our challenge you'll be entered into a prize draw for a fabulous $25 gift certificate to Taylored Expressions!!!

You'll receive one entry for participating and following our challenge, but you can double your chances of winning just by using Taylored Expressions stamps in your creation!

Only those cards uploaded in the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's gallery are eligible for the $25 shopping spree at Taylored Expresions. So you'll need to join Stampin' Out Alzheimer's in order to participate, but trust me, there are soooooooooo many challenges and wonderful prizes that it's well worth it! To register simply go to the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's website - a $5 donation is requested for membership and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the American Alzheimer's Association. Membership is being approved manually so you may have a little wait before you can access the site. 

Once you're a member of Stampin' Out Alzheimer's you'll find our challenge by clicking on Challenges/Announcements, then click Card Challenges and scroll down till you see "Two By Two Card Challenge". When you upload your creation to the SOA gallery, please remember to tag it with "soatwobytwo" (all one word, all lower case). We'll use the tag to sort photos into our challenge album and draw the winner from there. You may enter as many times as you wish and you may play along in as many challenges as you wish. The deadline for uploading your creations is midnight EST on Sunday, May 31st. Winners will be drawn and posted on the SOA website beginning June 1st. 

I made this card to help inspire you for our challenge, but you'll need to go to the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's website for complete challenge details. 

I used images from the Downtown Diva set for my creation, along with the layout from Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #69, TECC69. The patterned papers are from the Basic Grey Bittersweet collection. The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured with copic markers. I paper pieced the cupcake liner and added some sparkle with my fuschia Atyou Spica pen. 

Here are a few of my fellow Baker's Dozen gals that are hosting a challenge for SOA:

I hope to see you on the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's site this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely card - I like the photo corner "thingy" in the top left corner. I like the way you pop up your banner. I like the way you paper pieced the bottom of the cupcake perfectly and it even looks like you cut around the little lace scallop and opened them up a bit! Super sweet for a wonderful cause.
