A Card and Some Causes

Hi friends! I hope you are having a great day! My kids are still sick and we are spending yet another day inside. And it's REALLY windy out there! Oy!

Here's yet another reject card. I can't believe I still have more to post! This was based off of sketch 56 for the Go-to Sketches call. I used some Heartfelt Creations stamps for the first time on this one. I hand cut the flowers. I have the dies but I couldn't get it perfect so I figured I'd hand cut this time and practice at a later date. The quote is from Ippity's Delightful Little Things.

A couple other things today:

1. My friend Sparkle is having a fundraiser over at her online store Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps. For every Rin stamp that is purchased through the end of March, she will donate $5 to Japan Disaster Relief. My order is on it's way!

2. My sweet cousin Alexa is participating in an event on April 25, it's 25 hours of silence to support The Invisible Children Protection Plan. She only needs $20 to reach her fundraising goal. This is the first time she's ever participated in a cause like this and I'm SO proud of her. I strongly believe in giving back whenever I can. So, HERE is her donation page. If you can donate even $1, I would be so grateful! I would love for her to at least meet her goal on the first time out.
