Stamps for a good cause

September 20, 2008 at 11:42 pm 22 comments

During Gina K’s last release, Carolyn King illustrated a stamp set as a touching way to remember her grandma who just passed away from Alzheimer’s disease. Hearing the story of how much her grandma meant to her tugged on our heart strings here at Flourishes – so many of our design team members have a personal tie to this hideous disease. And, we know we are not unique. Right now, more than 5 million Americans live with Alzheimer’s. Every 71 seconds, someone will develop it. It’s the sixth leading cause of death. As a team here at Flourishes, we got to thinking. We should buy Carolyn’s set knowing that 100% of Carolyn’s proceeds will go toward the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of her grandmother. We decided to put our arms around Carolyn in a way we know best – to stamp our hearts out in honor of her cause. We hope you travel from blog to blog and if you can, buy Carolyn’s set knowing you will be helping other families who are working through this as well. If this is your first stop on the blog more links are provided below to everyone from Flourishes who is participating! 
 This card was made using Carolyn’s  Whimisical Autumn set.

To continue the tour, check out more cards made with this set from these great Flourishes designers!
