Sunday - February 21, 2010 Dragonfly Card Drive





I have finally joined the ranks of people who finally feel good. Two weeks with a horrible cold zapped everything out of me - not only was it the cold but I had a reaction to a medicine which contributed to my exhaustion. But I am better - and I got to create and I also got some housework done. Yeah!! All ready for the next snow storm to come through. Boo - hiss.
My first card is based on the weekly sketch at Taylored Expressions - Taylor is also sponsoring the Dragonfly Card Drive which benefits Sanford Medical Center in Sioux Falls, SD - Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to support families who have lost a child in the early days of their life. You can read more about the Dragonfly Card Drive at this link. If a card that I have made can comfort a family in their time of loss I am very humbled by the opportunity to make some cards for this worthwhile card drive.

Patterned Paper - Basic Grey (the patterned paper has dragonflies on it - I just added Stickles to the dragonflies to make them show more more.

Cream Twine - tea dyed

Card 2 and 3
