"Heart to Heart" Alzheimer's Card Drive

Two years ago, my dear friend Cammie (Carolyn King) held a "Heart to Heart" card drive, on her blog, in honor of her Grandmother who passed away after suffering with Alzheimer's disease. This year she's holding another drive today and she's having a blog candy drawing that's HUGE!! All you have to do is make a card for a caretaker of an Alzheimer's patient and agree to mail it to them. If you don't have somewhere to send your card, she's provided the address where her Grandmother was so wonderfully cared for. Be sure to link the blog candy post on your blog to spread the word too. Alzheimer's Disease is long suffering, and Cam thought this would be a good way to thank those who give of their time to take care of those suffering from this debilitating disease.

You can see Cam's post HERE.

Here's the card I made:


I made the background with the Verve set Good Friend. First, I stamped the flowers onto kraft cs with Red Brick VersaMagic, and then the leaves with Tea Leaves VersaMagic. Don't ya just love those flowers? The sentiment, from the Verve set Fabulous You, was stamped with Onyx Black Versafine onto Ivory cs, and all the edges were ink distressed with Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Ink. The sketch is Mojo Monday Sketch #157. Lastly, I added some buttons, a couple of punched borders and a bit of sewing.

Amongst all the fabulous donated blog candy, Cam is giving away a basket full of handmade cards made by various stampers. This is the card I made for the give away:


The silhouette is from a Flourishes set called Kids Play, the dp is all Lost by My Mind's Eye, and the flower was made with PunchBunch punches and Stickles.

That's it from me today. Head on over to Cam's Blog to see how you can participate, and what goodies she has.

Happy Stamping my friends!
Tosh
