Some of these cards may be going to my SIL to use as thank you cards for contributors to her March of Dimes Team.  She liked these but I am also working on some with the March of Dimes ribbon for her.  Regardless of which ones she picks, I am also making a batch of these for one of my local Relay for Life team for them to sell to raise money.  The ones I make for Relay for Life are going to be Birthday cards in honor of the American Cancer Society movement for More Birthdays.  My father will not be celebrating his this year but I wanted to do something to help others celebrate theirs.

Products Used:
  • Stampin' Up CS
  • Wild Card Cricut Cartridge
  • My Pink Stamper Faithful Sayings Stamp Set
  • Cuttlebug Tiny Mosaic Embossing Folder
  • Michael's Ribbon
  • Signo Gell Pen
