I have a card ministry that I started about 12 years ago. At that time I had a lot of littles and big kiddos at home and home educating. With one vehicle it was hard to help out in the nursing home/home bound visitation. But...I could share what I loved....cards. I started out with maybe 12 people and the list was added to because there were some older generation members who came to church, but just needed a bit of cheering up. My list has grown over the years, I have lost some...ok...many....because they moved on to Glory, but my ministry stays busy with about 55-60 cards a month. Depending on what is going on at church the count can grow from there with special speakers, etc.
I have a card to share today. The idea was from Patty Bennett's blog, pattystamps.com. She made a card using a new set from Stampin' Up! called Painted Harvest. I do not have that set, but I have the retired set from SU called Serene Sunflower. Instead of using ribbon, I used a small piece of Crushed Curry cardstock. It makes it a bit easier to mail.
Does not even compare to Patty's card, but it gave me inspiration for using what I had! Now all I have to do is write!!!!
