I'm also inspired by some of my kiting friends. One is a breast cancer survivor, and another decided to join the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk. We sponsored her, and when the survivor friend joined her in a later year, we were able to double our donation. This year, the survivor's 16-year old daughter and her son's girlfriend also joined the team! Unfortunately we weren't able to double our donation again, we kept it the previous level and divided it four ways. When one of them posted instructions for sending encouragement cards to the walkers while they were at camp, I was instantly inspired to do that! I had some left over card kits from Valentine's day, just the pre-cut pink card stock and designer series paper, which seemed perfect. This was another two-day project, and since I wanted each card to be as unique as the four women, I spent some time surfing the internet for ideas. When I found Brian King's card about halfway down on Mary Fish's blog post, I recognized immediately that it just needed a little more pink to fit right in:
I won't attempt to list all the supplies for all four cards here (several items are retired) but if you're interested, feel free to ask.
I hope that someone in your life inspires you!
