Moments

As promised here's the photo of my sample card for this week's mojo sketch. To make the triangle piece, I simply took a 4.25" square of designer paper, cut in half on the diagonal and glued one of the pieces to the corner. The rest is kind of standard stuff, so I won't bore you with too many details. The dp is all from Heidi Grace. The mats are Chocolate Chip cardstock and I used the SU! scallop border punch for the scallop edge. The ribbon is some new American Crafts ribbon I picked up at Archiver's.

I stamped two of the fern branches from Abundant Blessings randomly in Kiwi Kiss on white cardstock. Next I embossed the sentiment from Beautiful You in copper on Vellum and cut a little shorter than the leaves panel. I finished with three copper XL eyelets from We R Memory Keepers down the side, then added some liquid pearls to each of the scallops for a little accent.

So, have you heard about Cammie's Heart To Heart Blog Candy for Alzheimer's Awareness? Well, if not, she's holding a ginormous blog candy giveaway with a HUGE prize (over $1000 worth of merchandise). Verve Stamps donated several sets for the giveaway, including the two sets I used on this card. All you have to do is make a card and send to the caregiver of an Alzheimer's patient. This is such a tragic disease, and every 72 seconds another person develops Alzheimer's, so chances are if you haven't already been affected by this disease, it won't be long.

My grandfather suffered from Alzheimer's before he passed away a few years ago. It is a heart wrenching journey to go through for family and caregivers, as well as for the victims of this disease. I truly admire the wonderful men and women who give so much of themselves to care for patients suffering from Alzheimer's. Be sure and check out Cammie's blog for all the blog candy details as well as her stamp set, Whimsical Autumn, which she donates 100% of the proceeds received to the Alzheimer's Foundation.
