Giving Back

One of the things that I love about Stampin' Up! is the ability to use my supplies to give back. This evening, in the midst of the biggest storm that we have had in a long time, I headed out to do a little craft time with one of our local ministries. The ministry was formed by some amazing ladies to serve the girls of our community that find themselves in the midst of an unplanned pregnancy. Since I have been in that situation before, I find this a great cause and a worthy use of my time. So tonight, I went to a community center and spent some time with some great girls. We did four cards, one of which was for Operation Write Home. Why shouldn't the girls that are the recipients of great care not give back? So we stamped. It was awesome. I hope to be able to do it again in the future. So here are the cards that we did. And guess what some of them even changed them up to make them their own and show their creativity. It was great.

 As you can see, the cards are fairly simple. But they really did like them. I am so glad, I always worry if my designs will be liked. I am going to be hosting the leadership of this group at my home as well so I get to minister to those who minister! What a privilege.

What a great thing you are doing Danielle. Those girls are blessed to have you and in return they are blessing others with Operation Write Back.
