Before I get to TGF's Cards for a Cause and my card, I've been remiss in several Thank Yous. I've had much good fortune with prizes recently. My memory book won the challenges at TSB's Royal Wedding Challenges at SNR. Thank you Stacie and crew for motivating me to try something new.
I had a great time at the Fresh Brewed Designs chat at The Latte Lounge the other night. My beachy card won too! Thanks girls for being there for me.
I've also won the CK Scrappers prize from the Sunday Sketch and Stamp blog hop and the Heartsongs Designs prize from the IC Sketches blog hop. Finally, I won a gift certificate in the bunny game from Creative Clear Stamps.
Did you know about The Greeting Farm's 2011 Cards for a Cause Campaign? They are collecting cards for the students of Takasago Japan. These are cards of encouragement for the victims of the recent earthquakes. You have got to read the info on TGF website.
I'm hoping to make several cards for this campaign. Not just because I love TGF and would love to win stamps, but because I feel it's a really important cause.
My first card features Cuddle Anya from The Greeting Farm. I think she's a lovely stamp for this purpose. I colored her with Copics. The papers are from my Pink and Chocolate paper pack. I added brown lace and flowers from my stash. I'll be writing a nice message on the inside - something along the lines of "thinking of you." I may have to break out my old Japanese text books and see how far I can get.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
