Thank You

Awhile ago I read a post by a woman named Sonja who was a breast cancer survivor wanting to help others, much like my mother.  She started something called Project Give Thanks where she collects thank you cards from stampers to donate to Rocky Mountain Cancer Center in Boulder, CO.  The purpose was to provide free cards to give to caregivers, doctors, nurses, etc.  Since the purpose of our company was to help women with breast cancer, my mother and I decided to add on to this project and donate to a place local to my mother, The Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center in Saratoga Springs, NY.  We are making the cards ourselves, or I should say my mother has been making the cards.  This is the first one I've made and I wanted to share it.  That is one of my New Year's resolutions..to stamp more.  I have several stamps that are really good for nurses and doctors.  For this card I used Nurse Sophie from Riley and Company.  The thank you is from Lili of the Valley.  She was colored with copics and backed with Memory Box papers.

Merry Christmas Maddie!

I thought I'd share a card I made for a "niece" Maddie the other day. She is the daughter of one of my friends from college but I consider her a niece since I spent a lot of time with her when she was a baby. I was a little rushed but then I always seem to be so I don't take the time I should. Since she has a dog and a cat I thought this might be a cute card for her. I needed something to put a gift card in but was too lazy to make an actual holder so I just made the card :) I used Best Friends from Tiddly Inks for the image and colored it using copics. I also used a small snowflake stamp from Amuse Artstamps.  I added some glitter on the ground to look like snow. The paper is Memory Box.  Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas!
