Cards For Izzy

(this post will stay on top till October 21st, pls scroll down for all new posts, thank you!)

Hi there! As most of you know, Evanna's daughter has been diagnosed with Leukemia. When Evanna emailed me last week, I just felt heartsick and wondered what could I do? So, after a lot of thought, I'm going to run "Cards For Izzy" and reach out to all our fellow blogging friends to send a card to little Izzy. All cards can be mailed to me at:

Cards For Izzy
c/o Karen Wilson
PO BOX 438
Willow Beach, ONT
L0E 1S0
Canada

Cards do NOT have to be "Get Well", in fact, they can be absolutely ANYTHING that will put a smile on a little girl's face. If you have little ones and they want to make something, PLS add that in! The more cards, the better. I'm asking for all cards to be mailed out by October 21 and I will wait a couple weeks to be sure I get everyone's and then I will pkg everything up and send out to Evanna. Thank you all so very much - now let's make this little girl, and her family, smile.

Introducing .. A New DT Member!

Good morning friends! Michele and I have been chatting a little and since we have 2 DT members dealing with some personal issue's right now, we decided to add one more person to our DT. I didn't want to run a DT call for one person, so I went back through my challenges and this person has joined just about every single challenge this term, has commented on our personal blogs and has been an inspiration. So, without further a-do, please give a warm welcome to ... Suzanne!! Here's what Suzanne has to say about herself:

"Hello everyone! Hi this is Suzanne from cricutcraftingrammy.blogspot.com. I am so excited that I have been asked to be a designer for Lasting Memories. I love the challenges at Lasting Memories, as they give me so much inspiration to keep up with my scrapbooking. I retired over a year ago after teaching 33 years to become a full time grandmother. I have been blessed with 3 sweet granddaughters in the last 22 months, so I have lots of pictures to keep me busy. I usually use my Cricut Expression or Imagine to create layouts, cards, home decor and other projects. I am a member of the Cricut Circle and am on the Design Team for Sweet Sassy Diva and Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. I find so much inspiration from other crafters and love to learn new techniques. I am looking forward to sharing with you here at Lasting Memories" 

Welcome Suzanne!! We look fwd to working with you!!!
