Attention Please!

Hey there all you happy stampers,

I have some exciting Project Give Thanks news to announce.

This Sunday, May 18th, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. there will be a volunteer card making workshop and all of the cards will be given to the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center chemo patients.  WooHoo!

We will meet at the Scrapbook Shack 525 S. McCaslin Blvd., Louisville, CO 80027 (next to Carrabba’s).

This is a FREE event and materials will be supplied.

In addition to sharing your creative expertise and time, please feel free to donate the beautiful handcrafted cards and card fronts that you are not using.  We will give these wonderful handmade cards to some very special people.

One of the many lessons I learned, during my cancer treatment, is that it takes a community of talented and loving people to help get a cancer patient through the overwhelming process of fighting the disease.   Patients often want to show their appreciation for that but just don’t have the energy to shop for thank you cards.  They also want to stay active in their family’s lives by sending birthday, wedding, baby… cards.  That’s where our Project Give Thanks cards come in. They are available, free of course, right in the chemo room which is convenient because receiving treatment usually takes 4 hours and there’s not much to do so, it’s a good time to send a few cards.  As you see in the above photo, our cards are available and well received in the cancer support group meeting room too.

Artist, Chris Pereire, is responsible for organizing this event!  Be sure to thank her when you see her.  It looks like we may be able to meet every month.  That would be a huge WOW!  I’ll keep you posted.

Big Ol’ inky hugs,

Sonja
