I got an e-mail last week from a gal named Heather to be a part of a blog hop to celebrate her Blogiversary. At first I was a bit reluctant to participate, but after visiting her blog and seeing what she does with the money she makes selling her cards, I had to say yes. In a time where all you seem to hear and see is sadness, violence, and people hurting one another, it was touching to see someone reaching out to others. I will share her story in just a minute.
So I created a card using my Cricut Expression and the A Child's Year Cartridge. I also used the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge to create my flower. I added some glitter to her wand, and rhinestones to her wings.
I added flower stamens to the center of my flower and a bit of black twine behind it.
I would like for you to meet someone very special. Her name is Charlotte (Ndimurwanko Charlotte). She is the first recipient of a home through sales of Heather's cards. She has also committed to partnering with her as a sponsor for $30 a month to help provide her and her family with food, seed to plant, clothing, household necessities, medical care, and education assistance.
Charlotte has 3 married children, and she cares for 3 orphaned grandchildren. Her husband passed away in 1983. Her health is not good. This new home will help restore dignity and hope for Charlotte and her children. It is a true testimony of God’s love to the widow and orphan and a constant reminder that they are not forgotten.
To help Heather celebrate her Blogiversary, I am giving a bit of blog candy away! How about a full package of Teresa Collins Timeless paper, Teresa Collins trim, a Cuttlebug folder, a stamp, and a full distressing tool kit?!
