Starting the journey....Heritage Cart
Happy Monday.... here I am, and for the first time since about 2007 I am not posting my weekly challenge for BBTB2. I've stepped away for now and I will concentrate on "giving back" in a more dedicated way. I have donated a lot of cards and paper artwork to my friend Lanette who organized graymattersfoundation.com after she had endured brain tumors...and to date she has had 5. This sweet lady sends greeting cards, decorates hospital rooms, and is there to support anyone encountering this dreadful disease. I have had a lot of fun making turtles for Lanette to slip inside a card or letter, and some larger turtles that can be hung up in a room, on a door. Her logo is a turtle with a gray shell, sticking his tongue out and the sentiment is "brain tumors stink, that's what we think"... I told her I had made about 100 cards lately and asked if she needed anything. She told me she had plenty of girly girl kind of cards but needs "guy cards". Those are always a challenge for me. But I dug out my Heritage cart and was able to cut out some pretty cool cars and some bikes. I added a bunch of stamped sentiments so she can make the decision if she wants to add one to a card she is sending. Here are just a few of the cards Lanette received. Here is Lanette's web site.
This stack of napkins I made will go to an agency that serves cloth napkins with the meals. I have a lot of fun making these. And I am so happy they will be used.
