Laurie’s Line UP!

Yesterday 7 of my closest peeps gathered at my home for a card making event.  Even though we've had several card making events in the past, this event was special for all of us.  Normally we have made cards for soldiers sending them to From our Hearts for distribution.  On this occasion, we made cards for Card Care ConnectionCard Care Connection is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing sympathetic messages and motivational cards to those who face cancer.

Our dear friend Laurie has been battling this disease for several years.  Laurie is an avid stamper who not only makes cards for soldiers, she also makes cards for the St. John’s Mercy Cancer Center.  She fondly calls them her “cancer cards”.  Thus came the decision to name this event in her honor . 

Even though she could not be with us yesterday, Laurie’s presence was felt as we made 204 cards (a new record) that will provide uplifting messages to brighten the day of many patients.  Here are some photos of our cards, my remarkable peeps & of course just one snapshot of the fabulous food we shared.

A big thanks to Sally Nusbaum who also brought 300 completed cards & card fronts that will go to From our Hearts for the soldiers.

Using our talents to give back is a part of our mission.  For those who weren't able to make it, we missed you.
