Stampin' Out Alzheimer's!

I want to share some information about a very special project with you today that involves some wonderful people from Paper Craft Planet. Jen Tapler, from Jen Tapler Designs, and Susanna Boyd of Card of the Week are hosting a 7 day stamping and scrapbooking event to help raise money and awareness for Alzheimer's Disease. Alzheimer's Disease is currently the 7th leading cause of death in the United States. It is a fatal, progressive disease that slowly robs a person of their precious memories.We are involved in the memory preservation hobbies - so what better cause for the papercrafting community to join together to support? The site, Stampin Out Alzheimers.ning.com, will feature a variety of challenges, contests, classes and more in different paper crafting categories (stamping, cardmaking, paperscrapbooking, digi scrapping, hybrid, etc) - with prizes donated by over 30 generous sponsors. It's set up as a "Pay to Play" community.For a small donation (any amount will do), you'll get permission to join the online community which will be up from May 25 to June 1st. 100% of these funds will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association to help with their efforts to provide and enhance care and support for all those affected by this heartbreaking disease. For a quick link to join and make a donation, check out the widget in my sidebar. Check out the video on Paper Craft Planet's home page for a special mesage from Susanna and more about the event by clicking here.

Mother's Day Card

Here is the card that I made for my mother for Mother's Day. Her name is Rose and she collects Teddy Bears and we usually give her something bear related for any gift-giving occasion, but this time I thought that I would give her something different this time.

I found a cross stitch kit at Jo Ann Fabrics and after I did all the stitching I decided that I would use it on a card instead of putting it on the hanger that came with the kit. I then used some pale pink marble cardstock from a scrap pack that I got at Wal-Mart to mat the cross stitched piece then I used some pretty pink card stock from another scrap pack as the front of the card base.
I used iron-on adhesive on the back of the cross stitched piece and double stick tape as adhesive everywhere else.
