Cards for Caretakers

Recently a fellow stamper Cammie (Carolyn King) released her newest stamp set - Whimsical Autumn with Gina K. Designs. Cammie is donating 100% of the proceeds of her set to the Alzheimer's association in honor of her Grandmother. As if that wasn't enough - she's running a huge blog candy giveaway on her blog, and to enter, one of the things you need to do is make a card for someone who cares for an individual with Alzheimer's.
My grandmother passed away years ago and suffered from Alzheimer's and my father has been diagnosed with Parkinson's and also suffers from dementia unrelated to the Parkinson's - so this cause tugs at my heart strings. I emailed Cammie and asked her if I could make a card for my stepm0m - and she graciously replied "Of course!". I made a second card for a dear friend who works as a companion for a woman with Alzheimer's. There is still time to enter for Cammie's Heart to Heart blog candy giveaway - the prize package is valued at over $1000. You have until 8pm CST Friday to get your entry in! If you don't have anyone to send a card to - there is an address on Cammie's blog for you.
My card was made using a kaleidoscope pad (Autumn Heat) and brayering it on to glossy card stock. The image and sentiment were stamped in Black Stazon.
Hope you're having a wonderful week and hop over to Cammie's blog if you can!
