Creative Belli Challenge #101 and Heart to Heart Card Drive

Carolyn King's grandmother passed away in 2008 from complications of Alzheimer’s disease. That was the year that the first Heart to Heart Card Drive began, in her memory, to honor the CAREGIVERS of patients with this awful disease. The Alzheimer’s Association does a great job fund raising for research and spreading the word about the disease, however, this card drive is an effort to thank the silent victims---those who work every day so that someone they love (and sometimes someone they don’t even know well) can survive another day.

The card drive started on September 26 because that was Cammie's grandmother’s birthday and it's a CELEBRATION of the wonderful person she was. The card I created today will go to the Staff at Artman Home in Ambler, Pa. This is where Cammie's grandmother lived for the last few years of her life.

Be sure to go to Cammie's blog to check out all the lucky winner will win over $1000.00 in blog candy....WOWIE!!!!

Today is also time for another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this 2 weeks is to use numbers on your card or project!! Be sure to use something old and forgotten from your stash, too...the Belli Challenge is all about using your old stuff and forgotten treasures!!!

I have had the Friends 24-7 set by Stampin Up! for quite a while and decided to give it a little love for today's challenge. The damask image was stamped in the background with Baja Breeze (I stamped it off twice so the color would be light) and the bird image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. The Itty Bitty Background stamp was used with Creamy Caramel around the edges of the bird image for a little texture. The damask image was stamped on the background layer in a ramdom design. The background was then stamped with the SU Script background stamp using Creamy Caramel and then sewing was done around the edges. The sentiment, wrinkled seam binding, button, and twine finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:

1. Practical Scrappers - ribbon
2. Alphabet Challenge - vintage
3. Paper Sundae's Challenge - things with wings
4. Stamp, Scrap, and Doodles Saturday - stitching
5. Incy Winch Designs - anything goes
6. Wild Orchid Challenge - ribbons and bows
7. Crafty Catz - stitching

Be sure to visit the Creative Belli Design Team Member's blogs to read more details about their designs. You will find lots of awesome ideas!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast , PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC101 in the keywords section.
