CWC #94: "I Feel the Love" Project



Happy Wednesday and welcome to Cooking With Cricut!  Our Design Team challenge this week was to create birthday cards and decorations for children and teens staying in a homeless shelter.  
CWC Design Team member Madison Womack is the creator/founder of the "I Feel the Love" Project and is dedicated to bringing a little bit of handcrafted love to people in need.  This month's outreach is for Sheffield Place in Kansas City.  Sheffield Place opened its doors in February 1991 as a community response to the growing population of homeless mothers and their children in the Kansas City area. Since then, they have assisted more than 560 families in making the difficult journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency.  The volunteers throw a birthday party once a month for the children and teens living in the shelter and are in need of decorations that can be reused and birthday cards.  


Here is what our Design Team came up with . . .
