Join my mission for card donation

I need your help! 

I am on a huge mission to make a card donation for the Summit County Probate Court.  They are doing an amazing service to the community of Senior Citizens who are in assisted living and nursing homes.  The court is collecting and distributing handmade cards to the centers to let them know we are thinking of them.  Amazing!!!

Card Share

I want to do my part to help so I have set a New Goal of 500 cards!  That is why I need your help. 

I shared this on my Wednesday Facebook Live.  If you missed it, you can view it HERE for full details. 

Collection of cards can be mailed or dropped off to me by May 8, 2020.  Email me at lbrown140@gmail.com for my address details or you can IM me through Facebook.  The courts are only distributing through June 1st so we need to act fast. 

In the meantime, News Channel 5 has also released this story and you can read that here

Seriously, I would love for as many people to participate.  Whether its one card or 100, let's do this!  #inthistogether

If you can include an envelope, that would be great.  Otherwise, I will donate.  Please stamp or hand-write a message and sign your card.  No glitter.  No confetti.

Swing Fold Card with Poppies

So I waited a few weeks to post this card project on my blog.  My Video has been out for a few weeks now on My YouTube channel.  I would completely appreciate your following so be sure to subscribe. 

It seemed like all my current projects have been with the Peaceful Poppies Suite so I have been trying to go to some other great things in my stash.  Well, let me tell you... I keep reaching for them!  Must mean I really like the suite, and well, I do.  Everything coordinates just so, you can make some quick and easy projects or really doc them up into intricate pieces of art. 

For this project I show you how to make a SWING FOLD CARD.

More Black Ice Projects

Sometimes when I do a special technique or style of card, I just need to keep going with it!  It's like finding that perfect pair of pants and buying them in every color...LOL!  

Several weeks ago I shared my Black Ice Technique card, which turned into several more, so I have to share them with you.   Be sure to click on the bold words in the previous sentence to see my previous post too.

My first projects is using the Magnolia Lane Suite and Champagne Foil Sheets.  I also used the Everyday Label Punch for background interest.
