My card for the Heart to Heart Card Drive

I was inspired to resurrect my blog to post this card for a great cause.

The wonderful Carolyn King (AKA Cammie) is hosting a "Heart to Heart Card Drive" to thank the caregivers of Alzheimer's patients. Please see her blog here: Many terrific companies and individuals have stepped up to offer prizes as incentive. If you have some time this week, please consider making a card and sending it to a caregiver that has made a difference in the lives of a patient or their loved ones. If you don't know any personally, Carolyn has included the address of her grandmother's nursing home, where her grandmother spent her last days, with Alzheimer's.

My card combines the Mojo Monday sketch 157: with some lovely Verve stamps and Basic Grey Ambrosia papers. The orangish-red panel on the front is embossed with a music note embossing folder from Cuttlebug. This ties in with the sentiment from Raisin Boat inside that says,"A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails. - Donna Roberts"
