Thank you for Alzheimers

This is not my favorite card but it does have a certain charm. I made this for the Alzheimer Thank You challenge

I was looking for a challenge when I happened across this whopper of one! WOW at the generosity of ALL the companies involved and the people too!!!
Here is the link to the challenge and ALL of the wonderful donators a FEW are Just Rite, Scor-It, Taylored Expressions, Hambly, PaperTrey, StampingBella GinaK,Paper Pretties.... the list goes on and on. Not to mention all the wonderful people donating directly. This all goes for Alzheimers supporters --- the goal is to send out Thankyou cards to those people involved in the care of the patients. Here is the link: http://myblogbycammie.blogspot.com/2008/09/heart-to-heart-blog-candy.html

I only have one family member that has been effected and that person has since passed so I will be sending cards to the recommended address. I made this one for the challenge but I will also send a few from my stash.

My goal with this card was to ensure it had a hand made look as so much of the work these people do is hands-on. I wanted them to know I took TIME to thank them considering all the TIME they put in. Therefore there is a LOT of hand writing and drawing.

I used Bazzil paper and Basic Grey (inside), ribbon from my stash, book plate (thanks Sharon!), mixed flowers from my stash, brads from JoAnns that I got as part of a swap. I used a Heidi Swapp mask, Tim Holtz ink with perfect pearls in a mini mister to get the base design on the first page.

Well with the wordy stuff out of the way - here is the card!

Thank you
Thank you
