World Alzheimer's Day - Thank You Caregivers

Featured SCS Stamper: E3stamper

Because the card I CASEd was this week's sketch challenge on a square card, I had to be careful to keep most of it the same. I used the same colors with one exception. I had to use chocolate chip DSP instead of close to cocoa DSP. I used this years prints instead of last years. Since I didn't have argyle, I used a print with a diamond pattern in it. I used a similar autumn image, I used a sentiment at the bottom instead of a border image. I used 2 big brads instead of 4 little ones. I added a touch more distressing and added a spiral clip and ribbon. This card measures 5x5.

Here's Shannon's adorable card.

This also qualifies for a September Wish RAK challenge. My granted wishes are the big brown brads. I love them! And the adorable Harvest Bear image was a PIF image from InkStazOnMe.

And I'm very excited to tell you about World Alzheimer’s Day and Cammie's Blog Candy (Carolyn King). To enter, each person needs to make a card for a caregiver. This is so wonderful since the caregivers give so much of their love, time and energy to people with Alzheimer's and it's often taken for granted. This card is going to my mom and dad. For details about Carolyn's blog candy, here is her blog link. You don't want to miss this. There are several companies and individuals who donating items for this HUGE blog candy.
