Freshly Made Sketches #303 & Harvey

Thanks for waiting for me to bring you a new post, I’m very thankful ! 🙂  I’m also very thankful that even though Hurricane Harvey was beyond belief, so many good people have come to help and save lives!

I have some info to share from Sandy Allnock, that a lot of you remember from Operation Write Home.  I will have a card to share, and then I’ll post the info.

I do have a card to share that goes along with Sandy’s info.  I sat down as soon as I read her blog and made a card to thank local Hero’s in Houston.  I will post it on Freshly Made Sketches #303 so hopefully it gets lots of views!  Here is the sketch this week:

FMS Final 303-001

Here is the first card that I will be sending down to Houston or Beaumont, TX:

I used all Stampin’ Up! papers and stamps for this card.  I bought the stamp set, Fire Brigade off Ebay several months ago.  I’ve been watching the set for a couple of years, it’s always been too expensive to buy!  One day, I saw the set for $22.00 and of course, I bought it right away!  When I received the set I noticed it was sent from a small town near my home.  I didn’t really have a plan for it at the time, but I knew I would need it.  So here it is, I think it’s perfect!  There are several other stamps in the set that I plan to use also!  I wish I had a Policeman set, maybe someone out there has one and can send cards as well 🙂

I plan on posting a second blog post this week to show off some of the cards I have received for our Send A Smile 4 Kid’s Children’s Hospitals.   I’ve also sent a message to a Children’s Hospital in TX to see if they would like cards for their kids 🙂

Please read this info from Sandy and see if there’s some way you can help 🙂

    Love your card, Janet! It’s absolutely perfect for what you’re doing. I like how you left the image uncolored–really makes an impact. 🙂 ~ Andrea

    This is absolutely perfect. I love this image and I think it was meant to be that you got it when you did. Your work will be treasured by those who receive it. So glad to see you this week at FMS!
