In honor of World Alzheimer’s Day, which was on September 21st, Carolyn King has put together an incredible giveaway! You can enter here:
Part of the giveaway asks that each entrant send a card to a caretaker of an alzheimer patient. I have a lovely card I am going to give to Stillwater Estates manager and pass on to a caretaker. This giveaway brought tears to my eyes because of the generosity from so many wonderful companies and individuals!
Go check it out! Here is my card:

My daughter works very hard on her cards for special people. This card is for her auntie Julie!! At six years old I think she does a fabulous job at creating on her own. (It’s so easy to just jump in and take over – which I didn’t do!) On this particular card she wanted to use the distressor for her edges “like you mom” … so it was a first — Her style also involves all sides of the card!
This is the “front” & “back”:
This is the “inside”:
Ok, so I might have helped with cutting out the oval for the frame and the kitty – but really that’s it! 🙂
I had fun with some chipboard again and my CB with felt:

One of my most recent projects involves chipboard, scrapbook metal paper and beads! I layered my chipboard shapes and covered them with glue and metal scrapbooking paper. I used a stylus to mold the metal around the shapes and folded the edges to the back. From that point, I glued a faux leather on the back to cover the metal edges. At this point I am working on the edging with beads. I think this piece is going to become a necklace with some fringe hanging down. I have two other pieces to play with once it is complete.
