Flower Garden Embossing Folder
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there! I myself am very blessed to have a wonderful mother and to be the mother of two fantastic kids!
I have three different cards to show you today. Each uses the Flower Garden Embossing Folder. I used the Melon Mambo embossing powder for the thank you on the top two cards. It just made the words pop a little more. The thank you doesn't show up as much on the Bermuda Bay in the photo of the top card, but it does in real life (thanks to the embossing powder).
In case you're wondering why they are all thank yous, it's because they are going to a local cancer center. The patients can use these cards to thank people who have helped them during their battle against cancer. If you are local to the Raleigh/Garner NC area, please join us Tuesday night to make cards for this great cause. If you aren't local, you can still participate by sending donations to help fill our basket. Contact me (see header for e-mail) to get directions to my church to make cards on May 10 or to get the address to mail donations (cards, supplies or money to buy supplies). This will be an ongoing project, so even if you see this after May 10, contact me if you'd like to be a part of it.
We are making these cards as part of Project Give Thanks, which was started recently by cancer survivor Sonja Knaisch. Her blog is here: http://projectgivethanks.wordpress.com/home/
The thank you in the top two cards is from Because I Care. The bottom one is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
