Stamping Out Alzheimer's


Kate at i {heart} papers is hosting a challenge on the Stampin' Out Alzheimers forum, and we would love for you to join us. Go there to join and make your $5 donation to get in on all the fun! You can also donate by using the widget in the sidebar of my blog.

"Stamping Out Alzheimer's" is an amazing event that you won't want to miss! A $5 donation you will give you access to exclusive challenges and fun prizes from numerous companies. Jen Tapler and Susanna Boyd have been hard at work organizing this fast-paced, fun-filled week with amazing giveaways and a chance to reach out and make a difference for a very worthwhile cause. At the end of this event, 100% of the funds raised will be donated directly to the Alzheimer's Association to help with their efforts to provide and enhance care and support for all those affected by this heartbreaking disease. Over 40 generous sponsors are participating, so there will be plenty of fun (and prizes!!!!) to go around.

Kate’s challenge is to use Flower Soft, or another medium (flock, glitter, etc.) to texturize a flower, which will be the focal point for your card.

If you'd like to play along, first make your $5 donation and then upload your masterpiece to your photos in the SOA site and tag it with IHPSOA, so we can find it and add it our Challenge album. This will also enter you into the drawing for the Challenge prize that i {heart} papers is donating: a Flower Soft assortment of goodies valued at over $30! Everyone who enters the challenge is eligible - the winner will be chosen at random.

Additionally, all SOA participants are invited to use an exclusive 10% off coupon through May 31 (see ad for code) in our store off all items, including new and on sale items. And, as always, free US shipping on orders $40 and over!

Now for my card! I used Basic Grey Wisteria Paper and added lots and lots of flower soft! The ribbon is May Arts Silk, and the sentiment is from Flower Soft. All of these items are available at I {heart} papers!
