Giving Back - Paying It Forward

I don't know what you want to call it but I have an acquaintance from our old church whose sister's baby boy, 19 months , has cancer.  

I have been following the story on Facebook and his mom posted the other day about handing out Thank You notes.  I immediately thought, gosh I should make her some.  

So I contacted my acquaintance and asked if she would like that and got her address.  The next day I was cleaning my craft room that has desperately needed it since Christmas and found my table! It was a good stopping point, so I pulled out 4 card workshops and two packs of scraps of paper from ages ago and made these!

These are from the Free to Be Me Workshop instructions and used Tinkering Paper and some Red Shimmer Trim!

These are from the Avonlea Card Workshop instructions and I used Magnifique and some bling my kids gave me for Mother's Day one year.

The papers are no longer available but are available in Studio J!

I did 25 cards in a really short amount of time and they were simple but much more impactful than store bought ones would be!

SO

How could you use one of your gifts to Pay It Forward or Give Back?  Leave a comment below and I will pick a name randomly next Monday to send some Scrappy Therapy love to!
