Cards for a Cause



Ok girls, I have a challenge for you!!!
Jessie Bowditch sent this e-mail to me requesting my help and I told her that I would pass along the info, since it is for a good cause.

Some, if not most, of you know that my friend, Mark Shiffner, age 47, died suddenly, in his sleep this summer. Friends and family are having a benefit for his family (6 and 8 year old daughters and wife, Rocky) Oct. 8 and a part of the benefit, they're doing raffles. I came up w/ an idea today that I've shared with several friends and would love it if you wanted to contribute. Here goes:

I would like to collect as many homemade cards as possible and make baskets of them to raffle off at the benefit. So, would you like to contribute? I would LOVE any help and if it's one card, or 10 cards....whatever you're willing to contribute, I would GREATLY appreciate it!!!!!! Here are the themes I'm thinking:

Thanksgiving/ Christmas/ Birthday/ Thinking of You/Just Because

Be sure to include envelopes with the cards.

Jessi needs the cards by October 1st.
I told her that the cards I make (see photos above), I would drop off at K2 Studio this friday night September 29th. She will pick them up at the store on Sat. the 30th.
I plan on cropping all night at K2 and I thought that maybe those of you who are cropping could make at least 1 card to contribute.

Thanks and I know Mark's family will appreciate it!

And ladies, thanks so much for helping and being willing to serve the family in this way! I'm going to try to come to the crop and plan to make cards for awhile....

Can't wait to see these beautiful pieces of art!
