Cards and Crafts for Cancer Survivors!

At the bottom of my post you'll see a link to our Lime Light site. You can also click on the logo directly to the right as well.

We are currently working on cards, card sets, altered notebooks to be used as journals, etc. for our newest project!

WHY do you ask?? It's to support a group of cancer survivors! What an amazing cause!
We are making cards for the counselors and staff members to give to the patients andcards for the patients to send to their families. We're also making journals so the patients can chronicle their own journey... sometimes talking just HELPS!

The lady we are sending the project items to also does monthly craft classes!!! HOW FUN!

I'm in the process of finishing up my items for this LLDT project... and I'll be posting them soon!!

Why is this project so personally important to me?? My aunt Darlene (Dad's sister) passed from cancer - it was a shock since the family wasn't told until very late so there wasn't much time to think. I also have a work colleague that is currently in remission YAY YAY YAY and has undergone some reconstructive surgery. We've been with her through her fight, and she's come through it very well!! She's a tough one for sure!! :) SO, working on this particular project has some quite personal meaning.
