Special Challenge

This card was created for a special challenge over on the 2 Sisters Challenge blog, as follows:

Create a card that has a theme of THINKING OF YOU. You can also use HELLO, JUST FOR YOU, & JUST A NOTE as sentiments on your cards. Please refrain from using the sentiment of get well. Once you have your card(s) made and posted to the challenge, please write an encouraging note in the card and address the envelope to "ANY PATIENT" and then place the card(s) in a package addressed to STACY WALKER, 15 WILLOW WAY, SWANVILLE, MAINE O4915, USA

When your package is on its way please e-mail twosisterschallengeblog@live.com to let Stacy know it is on its way.  Once all the cards have been collected, Stacy will deliver them to the volunteers at the Brigham & Women's Hospital on January 30th to be handed out to patients in their transplant wards. It is hoped that when the patients receive these beautiful handmade cards and read the notes of encouragement it will brighten their day a little.

I think this is such a lovely idea, and therefore I decided to make a card to send off.  I hope this post encourages lots more of you to pop over to Stacy's blog and spend a few minutes to brighten someone's day with your magical creations.

Here's my card:

I've been inspired by the following:

Hiya Netty,

How are you?

Hope you & your family had a great Christmas!

What a fab card, so love the colours & what a great idea & a fantastic cause to have made your card for!

Being in hospital for any reason is difficult but when it is in a more serious capacity & a longer stay a beautiful card such as your's would cheer anyone's day!

Thank you for choosing to enter with us in our last challenge of 2010 at OSAAT!

Good luck in all your challenges, hope you win something!

Have a fab New Year!

All the best for 2011 !

Take care
Big Hugs

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 500 so far !

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
