Some of the team at A2Z Scrapbooking are doing a blog hop for the Lasting Hearts card drive.
What is Lasting Hearts card drive, I hear you ask. You can read all about it on Jennifer McGuire's blog post HERE
Her friend Kimberly is hoping to have copies of her helpful book along with handmade cards available for doctors to give to parents who lose their babies. What an amazing idea!
As I personally have lost a child, my first being still born, I can appreciate the difference this will make to the grieving parents.
If you are interesting in creating a card to be given to these parents when they get a book, here is the info. It is simple:
- You can send as many cards as you would like.
- Please use a sentiment such as: thinking of you, in my prayers, in my thoughts, sending hugs, sorry for your loss.
- For the inside of the card, you can either leave it blank or hand-write a simple message. Not much – just simple and kind. The message can be something listed above, along with your first name and hometown. (Such as: “Sending lots of prayers from Jennifer in Cincinnati.”)
- Please send cards in unsealed envelopes to:
Lasting Hearts Card Drive
2892 N Bellflower Blvd Ste 216
Long Beach Ca 90815
Of course the girls at A2Z are using Hero Arts products to make our cards.
I have used the Antique Rose Stem stamp (K6136) to emboss onto vellum. I coloured the back with some Gelatos and then fussy cut. I added to the PP from Rosie;s studio. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Butterfly Pair stamp and cut (DC182) These popular stamps are out of stock currently at A2Z Scrapbooking but you can order them by using the request custom order button on the site.
