Thinking of You

Cardmakers are getting together and making cards to send to Christchurch to be distributed by Victim Support and though it seems such a little thing to do, I sincerely hope my cards bring a little peace to someone amidst the chaos down there at the moment.  I sat at my desk and made some yesterday which I'll show to you over the next couple of days.

The following message came via the Just Add Ink blog:
"Victim Support are a group affiliated with the NZ police force and are trained in dealing everyday with adversity, helping and supporting people in need.
We thought they would appreciate some cards that they could write in and to take to victims of this devastating quake.
If you would like to do the same then you can send a home made card (blank inside with envelope if possible) to -

Victim Support
PO Box 2109
New Zealand

Thinking of you, get well soon, with sympathy or just a plain blank card would be appreciated"

I wanted to made a nice bright card so chose my favourite DSP called Play Date to feature in this card, and as Christchurch is the city of flowers thought it was very appropriate. 

What I used:

Card:  Tempting Turquoise, Read Red, Whisper White, Play Date DSP

Ink:  Chocolate Chip

Stamp Set:  Sincere Salutations

Tools and other fun stuff:  Butterfly punch, Wide Oval punch, Scalloped Oval punch, Rhinestone.

  1. Thanks for the Victim Support address. I follow your blog every week and I hope you can talk your Mom into making cards with you, so we get to see more of your creativity on a regular basis. Keep up the good work!
