Boy, nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh? Well, I really have been on the fence about this for a lot of different reasons. I was convinced by some of my enabler buddies on the MB, decided to cut back on a few things and bite the bullet. So, I don’t like the name “Circlet”; I think I will have to come up with something else. I mean Cricette is better than that for goodness sake!! I know there has been some discussion on the MB, so I will have to see what I like out there. So, who else is a Circlet?!

So today I was browsing through my RSS feeds and a post from Jennifer McGuire, ink caught my eye. It was entitled “NEW Cards for Kids Card Drive - Round 3!” As I was reading I was so touched and I feel compelled to challenge myself for the very first time (craft wise) to accomplish a project. I am challenging myself to create AT LEAST one card for every child on the list (13 cards). I am challenging you to do what you can. Please join me in providing these children and their families with an uplifting card. They face difficulties the majority of us will never know or understand and if I were in their shoes I would love to know that people were sending prayers my way.
If you would like to take on my challenge, please post a comment letting me know what you propose to do. Include a link to or the address of your blog so I may follow you and check up on your status with this challenge. The deadline for this round of cards is Aug 30. For further details on this project such as info on the children and their families, where to send the cards, please click here and here.

I thought I would add this handy dandy card size chart for everyone. I found this on google, but have no idea who to give credit to. I think given the above video, this chart will prove to be very useful.

I got a very nice gift from my Aunt and Uncle for my birthday and I thought I would take a minute to make them a thank you card. I made one and then decided to make another one for use in the future…I mean you can always use a thank you card, right?! Both Frog and butterfly are from Create a Critter. Embossing folder on butterfly card is Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers.
