Cards for Ryan Appeal
Now on to today's project. I received an email from a lovely crafting pal of mine in the USA Meredith Winston detailing an appeal for cards. I won't repeat all the details as you can read more here if you wish to join in and send a card. Suffice it to say that a friend of Meredith's brother was involved in a serious accident and is currently undergoing rehabilitation. My card today is the one I am planning to post to Ryan at the hospital and I hope that in some small way it helps him along the way to recovery. If you have a card lying around that you could send, that would be so lovely, apparently the staff read all the cards to Ryan and it is positively impacting his rate of recovery to know that so many people are thinking of him.
I decided to create a CAS card as, being just one layer, it will be more reasonable to post to the USA than one with lots of embellies on it. It's a C6 base card with the Get Well sentiment by Dark Room Door stamped along the lower edge with Memento Paris Dusk ink. The cute teddy from a Nit Wit Collection set of stamps was also stamped with the same ink and coloured with Copics. I added Glossy Accents to the ribbon and the heart on the top left and considered it done.
I don't know where the grey spot has appeared from on the upper left of the piccie, it certainly isn't on the actual card, so apologies for the less than perfect quality of the pic.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post.
