Anniversary Card & A Good Deed

I attended a 50th Anniversary party this past weekend. Dick Clark and his lovely wife Ruth renewed their vows in front of family and friends. You may be wondering how I know Dick Clark - Well - He lives next door to my Hubby's parents in NH. As you may have figured out it's not the Dick Clark that you may have been thinking but he is still quite a guy and famous in many circles! LOL!

I made this card for the event and thought it turned out pretty cute. So cute in fact, that I used the same design for another great cause. I made a set of 10 cards for the card fundraiser being hosted by Jade @ Jadedstudios on Youtube. She is hosting this to raise money for a fellow scrap buddy Claudia (66msclaudia on youtube)who has fallen on some hard times. Check out this video to learn more.

Claudia recently lost her hubby suddenly to pneumonia. She has 6 kids and no income. She is currently selling all of her craft supplies to raise money so be sure to check out her videos here.

After hearing her story I knew I wanted to do my part to help and then I saw Jade's video. I made all the cards that day and sent them right out. As I have said before, one of the greatest things about these online scrap communities whether on the scrap beach or on youtube is having a support system. These ladies are always there to answer questions, give suggestions, let us know of the newest product or deal, share techniques and most of all to help when needed. The friendship and kindness of all the ladies I have had the privilege to meet is just amazing. We are truly lucky to have these un-seen online friends.

Thanks for listening!
