In Celebration of World Alzheimer's Day

One of our fellow blogging stampers has put together the mother of all blog candies in honor of World Alzheimer's Day. She has had many companies and individuals come together with donations and the value is well over $1,000 and growing.

I have made this card using the beautiful Eloise Greengrass from Stamping Bella and the official colour of the Alzheimer's awareness ribbon - purple! Now one of the guidelines was to send to card to someone you know that is a caregiver for an alzheimer patient or if not to the home which her grandmother spent the last few years of her life. I will be sending my card to the staff at the Artman Home as I do not know of anyone in this position right now.

Check out Cammie's blog for more information.

Eloise has been coloured in with my beloved Prismacolour Markers and a little Stickles on the wings. Stampin' Up! Lavender Lace cardstock , the print I cannot remember (took it out of the packaging, silly me). Ribbon is from Michaels. The "Thank You" is from SU stamped in Old Olive and outlined with a white gel pen.

Happy Stamping!

  1. Oh, Sharah, your card just takes my breath away! It's just gorgeous! I didn't realize that purple was their official color, but since I decided to do my card for a male, I guess purple wouldn't have worked too well anyway! LOL!
