Remembering Lynn Woodward
August is upon us and school starts are just around the corner. Before we move into upcoming events, I wanted to take one more opportunity to reflect on July with a special dedication to one of our sisters... Lynn Woodward. Stamp to Cope, Inc. received a most generous and appreciated donation on behalf of Lynn and all that she contributed toward the breast cancer fight. Although Lynn is now in a better place, while on this earth she touched so many lives with her valiant struggle, positive message, and "never give up" outreach. It is with pride and pleasure that STC take a special moment to celebrate her life! She was an inspiration to all who knew her. Thanks Lynn, I know you are looking down on us with love and a smile.The funds provided will be earmarked for a special Survivor Event currently in the planning at the University of Kentucky's Markey Cancer Center. More information coming soon. STC is blessed to have such caring support. Thank you!
Keeping in the spirit of looking down on us, I created this Hot Air Balloon Card to thank our donor. I adapted a basket stamp (did not ink the apples that were inside), free handed the guide lines, and used a scalloped punch for the balloon. Using two different colors of the same paper gave it a more festive look. I am going to continue refining this idea with a simple circle punch and solid colors to see how realistic I can get. Try adding sand bags with stickers or masking a cute animal in the basket. If you learned the cloud technique at one of our workshops, what a cool look that would make. Enjoy being creative.
Have a wonderful week and stay strong.
