I recently won some blog candy from Irina of Everything Paper Crafts. (Psst! Irina is giving away some more candy here.) The package arrived one Friday after a long and hectic day at work and was very , very much appreciated! One of the goodies was a stamp from Irina's new store, La-La Land Crafts. It's from the Rosie collection, Rosie with Teddy Bear. Isn't she sweet? The layout for this card came from last week's sketch on Amy R's Prairie Paper & Ink blog.
On a more somber note, this weekend marked the passing of our longest serving senator, Ted Kennedy. While he certainly was not a perfect person, he did a lot of good for a lot of people as well. Part of the Kennedy creed is to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. So, dear readers, I ask that you join me in doing something for someone less fortunate this week. If you're a Kennedy supporter, do it in his memory. If you're not, do it in support of all the people in this world who devote their lives to making a difference. For me, I am sending some old swap cards to a fellow demonstrator to send to her son & his fellow soldiers to send home. I am also sending this card to a little girl named Haven, whom I found through the Make a Child Smile site. I hope my card brings a smile to her face! :)
