Delightful Cause

These flowers are from Peace and Comfort, the weekly freebie in the progressive challenge at Delightful Inspiration.  If you didn't play along with us last week, you can find them in the Designed2Delight digi shop.  They come with some sympathy sentiments and an image with the flowers and a cross.  I couldn't bring myself to make a sympathy card when I didn't need one.  I'm superstitious like that!

Instead I made a thank you card.  This one is going to a special cause.  You can get all the info here.  Cammie is holding a  Heart to Heart Card Drive in honor of her grandmother who passed away in 2008.  The cards are for the caregivers working at the nursing home who lovingly cared for her grandmother who had Alzheimers.  I participated last time and I have to say it is such a great feeling to do something like this.  We all know how important those special people are who take care of the elderly and the sick.  My own grandmother is in a nursing home right now, and I know the people who work there make all the difference to her.  So go check out Cammie's blog and make and send a card if you can.  She is also offering a chance at a HUGE blog candy for those who participate.

I followed the MoJo Monday sketch (MoJo158) for this card.  I love the sketch for the last Monday of the month, it is always a round or square sketch.  Fun to change it up a bit.

Thanks for stopping by today.
