for Dora

Hi!
Here's my card for Card Patterns Sketch 44 Challenge. The very talented and thoughtful Nina sent me some stamped images (Gina K Designs). I coloured the bird and branches with Copics and used my glitter gel pen and stickles to add a little shine.






I don't think I'll have much time to do any other challenges this month for several reasons but there's ONE very important reason. My daughter's best friend Dora (from daycare/preschool) and her father were killed in a car accident this past summer. Dora's mother is left with 4 children.....they were all in very bad shape and still have a very long road ahead of them to heal.
Anyways, my daughter's group at daycare/preschool is having a fund raiser for Dora's family to help them out (this is the second time). I was thinking of what else I can do....and I thought why not sell my Christmas cards and tags at the daycare/preschool and donate all the money to Dora's family....anyways..the principal loved the idea and the photo underneath is of the poster announcing the fund raiser and my cards being sold from Dec. 14 to Dec. 18. So lets hope they will sell!! I've got lots of work to do!!!




you could see my name on the right 'mama Jane Beljo'

That's it for now.....thanks for popping by and say a prayer for Dora's family....I pray they will find the strength they need to move on and find comfort in the Lord and each other.
Pin It!
