Giving thanks...



I loved this card so much, I had to case it. Michele used stamps and I have a much neglected paper punch, so I opted for punched leaves. I made fold lines on them and added some ink to give it the look I wanted. I printed out the sentiment on the computer.
This card is going to go to the caregiver's for Cammie's grandmother. Cammie has the most incredible give away and for a wonderful cause. Cammie's grandmother died from Alzheimer's and she is asking people to make cards to thank all of the amazing caregivers out there. I know there are a lot out there and so many will be touched by these cards. What a sweet thing this is. You need to go see the amazing companies that donated and you need to send a card to thank those caregivers.

Nice card! I think I have some of that paper in my stash. I'll have to dig it out. Now I'm off to make a card for my grandmother's caregiver when she had Alzheimers.

This card is lovely. I'm sooo ready for fall!

I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but if you'd still be up for an image swap with the Inkadinkadoo birds, I'd love to swap with you! You can email me at sairabee@yahoo.com if you're interested! :) Thanks!
