Cards for Cancer Survivors

I recently stamped some quick and easy cards to donate to a local hospital. The Oncology Support Services department at Greater Baltimore Medical Center's Sandra and Malcolm Berman Cancer Institute gives comfort bags to women diagnosed with gynecological cancers.  One of the items in the comfort bag is a set of 4 thank you cards the women can use to thank people for their support as they fight cancer.  Many times, friends and family will make meals, provide transportation, send get well cards, run errands, and do countless other things to help women when they are in treatment. This set of thank you cards lets these women have cards on hand to jot a quick note of thanks to those loved ones.  

The cards are simple, but beautiful (if I must say so myself -- LOL!).  Here is a group shot of the latest round of cards:

Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator has been one of the greatest joys and blessings in my life.  I have met so many wonderful people and have grown so much through this hobby of papercrafting.  The Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart reads:
"To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments ... in this we make a difference."
I hope these cards will make a difference in the lives of the women who receive them in the comfort bags.  I encourage all of you to stamp a card and send it to someone special.  You will never know what a difference it can make.

The Key Note Speaker at the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference this year was Jason Wright.  He talked with us about the importance of reaching out to others, and the lasting effect it can have in our lives.  Here is a small part of his speech (get your tissues ready for the second video):

Make a difference in someone's life today with a hand-stamped card!

Happy Stamping,
