Blogger's Challenge/Heart to Heart


I am using my blogger's challenge this week as a way to reach out to an Alzheimer's caregiver. Carolyn King issued a challenge for anyone to send a note of support with a homemade card to someone who is caring for an Alzheimer's patient. I thought of my friend and one of my teaching mentors from my first years of teaching so this card is for her husband and her family. She doesn't know who I am anymore but I won't forget what she taught me!

Carolyn is offering some AWESOME blog candy to motivate people to thank the caregivers. I should be doing it on my own and much more often!

Our challenge was to make a Warhol style card. These cards challenge me by having to measure and cut precisely! I have a hard time figuring out the measurements but I did it! (BTW, each section is 1 7/8" by 1 5/8", then layered onto a 5 1/2" by 4" layer and then onto a standard quarter fold card!)

Thanks for looking and see what Pop-Art has influenced our group this week!

Love that set and great job with the Warhol technique! I started out thinking I would do the same thing for Cammie's cause, then went in a different direction with a Christmas set...but it is on my list to work on today.
