Thankfully - Under The Wire


If you haven't been to Carolyn's Blog you really missed out on something BIG...See this post:

http://myblogbycammie.blogspot.com/2008/09/heart-to-heart-blog-candy.html What a wonderful tribute to her Grandma. While I don't know anyone personally who has suffered from this horrible disease I know that it can be very devastating to loved ones when something like this happens to their loved one.


I have been trying all week to get my card posted and finally got it done today. Being sick hasn't helped any with time management but I'm feeling better so here is my card. I will be sending this to a lady that heads up an Organization called, Mail For Cheer. My mom is a volunteer for this. Basically they send out cheer cards to people who need them for various reasons, (ie: Death in the family, health issues, depression) to help Cheer them Up. I think this is a real blessing and I know my mom enjoyed receiving cards when she had her Knee Surgery and she loves being able to brighten up someone else's day.
For this card I used: Thoroughly Thankful (SU). I embossed the image with Gold EP and watercolored with ink pads and the Aqua Painter. I highlighted the Pumpkins and Sunflower with Spica Glitter Pens for some shimmer. The Designer Paper is from the Haiku Series. Card colors: Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla. I stamped the sentiment with Palette Noir Black ink. The shiny leaves at the bottom are from Creative Imaginations (Debbie Mumm) collection. I also added some ribbon (May Arts).
Well I am thankful that I managed to get this card completed even if it is "under the wire" for the Blog Candy Giveaway. The real purpose for making the card will not be to win (although that would be cool) but rather to help brighten up someones life a little.
Thanks Carolyn for being a such a caring person.
