It's time for another Challenge Me Monday over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. Today's Challenge Me Monday #45 is Support the Cause ~ Make a project in honor of a cause near and dear to you or a loved one's heart (i.e. breast cancer awareness, autism, MADD, etc.).
The cause I chose is very near and dear to my heart as it has touched me in a tremendous way. On November 4, 2001, my mom died from a massive heart attack at the age of 54. There were no visible signs that she was ill and it took our family completely by surprise. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women. I decided to make a post card as a reminder for National Wear Red Day.
Here is what I used:
Cricut Cartridges ~ Forever Young, dress ~ Nate's ABCs, red lettering ~ A Child's Year, base
Lettering is computer generated
Ribbon ~ Hobby Lobby
Paper Studio Punch
ATG and Zig 2 way glue
This is a picture of my mom and dad. This was taken at my sister's wedding. My father passed away 3 years after my mom from complications due to ALS ~ Lou Gehrig's disease. I miss them both dearly.
I urge all women to visit Go Red For Women and get educated about heart disease. On February 4th, please wear red to support this important cause. I will be wearing red in honor of my mother.
If you would like more information about ALS you can visit The ALS Association.
Make sure to visit FCCB and see all the other great causes that my fellow design team members support.
