CWC #121: Card Outreach



It's another Wonderful Wednesday here at MyPaperCrafting.com!  We are so happy you've joined us for our weekly "Crafts With Cutters" Challenge.  This week our Design Team is creating uplifting cards for Madison's "I Feel the Love" Project.  Each month a different recipient is chosen to receive little handmade gifts of love.  Since IFTL started in June 2011 over 1,300 cards have been received from amazing crafters all over the world.  

Here is what Madison had to say about this month's recipient:  Alana is a 21 year old student who experienced a devastating loss as the result of Hurricane Sandy when it came to shore in October of 2012.  She and her family lost their home and most of their belongings.  When Alana was able to go into the area for the first time and see that her family home had been knocked down she said, "I was in shock of what I saw. It is something I will never forget as long as I live."  I can't imagine losing everything all at once. That would be very difficult. We can support Alana and her family. Words of comfort can go a long way.

Check out all the details about Madison's "I Feel the Love" Project and how you can participate on her website.

I hope you'll join us in welcoming our newest Design Team member . . . SHEENA!  Sheena's blog is called Dew Drops and Glue Dots and I am certain that she is going to be a great addition to our Team.  She has had her Cricut Expression for 5 years now and, like the rest of us, she loves it.  She also loves making cards and is a big fan of faux stitching and clouds.  Sheena loves the outdoors and flowers of all kinds.  She's also a big Disney World fan!  This is her first Design Team experience.
