Color Hues #72 - Lindsey's Legacy Hop

Hi and welcome a day early for the new challenge from Color Hues.

Today, we have a very special challenge, in conjunction with our normal colour duo, the Color Hues design team along with a few guests, from our sister challenge Seize the Birthday, are participating in a blog hop! 

Collectively as a team, we are hopping in memory of our dear friend, fellow card maker, and design team member, Lindsey Martin-Penny, who sadly passed away last year from a rare and aggressive form of ovarian cancer. 


The purpose of this hop will be to honor Lindsey, celebrate her life and all that she loved, as well as spread the word to raise funds for Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer Research.  

How can you help? You can find all the details and the start of the hop at Emily's blog here!

In honor of Lindsey, the team has created a variety of cards using her favorite color combo of Purple and Red.

Here's my card.

This image is another blast from the past that I'd forgotten all about until I went looking for something completely different the other day! It's a Lili of the Valley stamp called Millie Just for you. 
After colouring with Copics and fussy cutting, I created a frame using a die from MFT and added some embossed white to the background. Originally I was going to use some flowery DP that matched the flower for the background but decided I needed something a little plainer so opted for this panel of purple card from my stash and a Uniko sentiment embossed in white EP.

The next stop on the hop is Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.  Please be sure to leave a comment at each of the stops where you can learn more about Lindsey’s life, her loves and her legacy.

If you get lost along the way, please return to Emily Leiphart’s blog for the hop list and details. 

So where will you go with these new colours? We'd love it if you joined us here but equally we'd really love it if you joined in Lindsey's Legacy Hop.
