Cards, cards and more cards!

Over the summer I became involved with a fundraiser called Miles for Mason. We are raising funds to help cure Angleman Syndrome. For more information or to donate visit This is the second year of the event (I didn't become involved until the second year) and through various fundraisers we have raised $16,000!!! All the money goes towards researching the cure. Clinical trial start next year!!
One of the things I did to help raise money was donate greeting cards. I have some friends who do a monthly card night in which we exchange cards. I asked them for any unused cards they had. I never imagined that my friends and I would donate 700 greeting cards. They are sitting at my work available for sale to raise money for the cure. I make cards about once a week to keep them fresh. We have sold hundreds of cards!
Since I have been making cards regularly I haven't been scrapping as much. So it's time I show you what I have been making.
I found these on Pinterest. Such a great and simple card. The whole paper is lightly patterned and yes those are bandaids that I stamped a heart on. Super crumple and cute!
I made this on index cards. More of a grunge look.
Here I made some really simple cards. I was trying to make a big bunch to have available at the event. Once a year we hold Miles for Mason. It's a family fun day. Games, food, silent auction, raffle. It is amazing! Hope you enjoy these cards and that you learned a little about Anglemans.
