Crop for the Cure

The owner and design team for the new store, Anthologies, (which will open in October - yeah!) had our first outing together on Saturday. We participated in a local 12-hour Crop for the Cure to raise funds for breast cancer research. Anthologies donated several door prizes and two beautiful albums for a raffle.

We also offered a make-and-take card (see above) for 70 participants which I designed. It had to be relatively simple and quick and everything was precut. I used three beautiful patterned papers from Melissa Frances' Thankful line. I apologize for the poor scan - my scanner did not like the lumpy ribbons! For some reason the velvet ribbon formed into the breast cancer symbol looks like the glue shows through, but it doesn't.

The coordinators of this 12-hour event did a great job and it was amazing to be in a room full of 70+ croppers, many of whom are breast cancer survivors.
