This is a card I made for our CST challenge this week (make a round card). This card was fun to make and is pretty straight forward. I used Nestabilities to cut the base out of white cs. Cut two, scored one at the top for the back and sealed together so it would open. I then used my Fiscars circle cutter to cut out 2 yellow circles and sandwiched the ribbon between them. The ribbon is equal all the way around even if it doesn't show up like that in the photo. I think it was the angle I took the photo at that makes it look so uneven. This was then adhered to the card base.
I then cut another smaller Nestabilitie scallop circle and embossed it and added that on top. All that was left to do was add the little elfin girl image (digi stamp that was colored with prisma colors, sorry I could not find where I got the digi from, I am usually good about noting where I get digis, just not this time, my bad.) and add the sentiment (Inkadinkadoo) using nestabilities, once again. The image is popped up and I inked the edges of all the white cs with yellow ink.
This card will be added to a bunch I will be sending to "Send a Smile 4 Kids". This seems like a very worthy cause that donates cards to Sick Kids in Vancouver and Stollery in Edmonton so that families and staff can give cards to children that are in need of care. If you would like to know more about this cause, here is the link.
I was told about this organization by Gail, a new blogging friend. Gail has to be one of the busiest people I know. She gets more done in a day than I do in two weeks. And she is a great crafter. You really should check out her blog. It really is an inspiration.
I know I live in BC and Sick Kids is a wonderful hospital, but I thinkI will send cards to Alberta for Stollery. I have a close connection to that hospital. . I spent countless hours there a few
years ago when my young niece was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Right after the diagnosis, I went to Alberta to help anyway I could. I thought I would be caring for my sister's other children while she and my niece stayed in Edmonton for treatments.
Found out treatments were 15 minute bouts of radiation, 5 days a week. So we decided to travel back and forth for 6 weeks of treatments. They live a little over an hour out of Edmonton. I became the designated driver. My sis was not comfortable driving in the city, especially with so much on her mind. Many of the trips included visits to Stollery for checkups and support.
Long story, short...sadly, my niece lost her fight at only 13 years old. But I remember how much she enjoyed receiving hand crafted cards from some of my online friends. And I remember how much support and caring she and the family received from Stollery. I would like to pay some of that back and this is one way I can do that.
So that is about it for today.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend and keeping warm. It is cold here.
