WEDNESDAY

I have been working all weekend on going through hundreds of swaps I have accumulated over the years from conventions and meetings.  The reason I started this project was because I will be working with other stampers this afternoon and evening to mount and make cards for a wonderful organization that was begun here in Chambersburg.  It is called Sweet Grace Ministries.  This org was created by a young woman who lost their first child to neonatal death.  It ministers to others who are grieving the loss of an infant through neonatal death, stillbirth, death soon after birth, and miscarriage.  It is such a wonderful non-profit group and has now spread to several other cities in our mid state area. The organization sends "thinking of you" and "praying for you" cards to those who have experienced such a loss.  Several women at church get together every couple of months to make the cards.  This month, because the group is spreading to other areas, unfortunately, the need for cards has grown.  So women from church and the community will be helping me prepare cards.  I tried to keep as many swaps as I could that had one of the above messages or had a butterfly, which is their symbol.  For some cards I added a butterfly and stamped or changed the stamped message. I have over 200 card fronts ready to go for the girls to mount and place with an envelope.  Here is a pic of the cards and another picture of several cards I just pulled out of the box.  There is also another box ready to go but I need to stamp a message on the front first.
 

We will stamp some more very simple cards so that we can make our quota of at least 350.  I love being able to do this, but am so sad that this tragedy happens to so many people.  Thank goodness for Sweet Grace Ministries that can touch and help heal so many!  If you would like, visit their website to see all that they do.  www.sweetgraceministries.com.
