Deborah Nolan coordinated a secret card drive for a Hero Arts Flickr friend who was battling a terrible illness. I wrote up this post over a year ago. It was published, and some of you commented, but I "unpublished" it because it was still a secret. And now, a year later, Deborah said it was time for the reveal. So here it is, again...
Just wanted to share a card that I made for a Flickr friend who is going through a difficult time right now. Deborah is hosting a secret card drive that drew an amazing turnout, which just goes to show that stampers have the biggest hearts.
I am loving Hero Arts' new Friend Definition cling stamp. It's huge and covers a lot of card in one stamping, and it also stamps so crisp and clear.
I sponged Shabby Shutters on cream cardstock and stamped the definition in brown. Tore the edges with a metal edge ruler and finished up with some flowers that were colored and cut out, along with some leaves from my new favorite Sizzlits leaf die.
Here's hoping that our secret friend knows that she has our love and support and that there will be brighter days ahead. --November 2009
