Lasting Hearts Blog Hop

Hi, friends, today the a2z Scrapbooking Design Team is sharing their cards for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive. You can start here at a2z to see the participants. 

Lasting Hearts is here to help comfort mothers who have lost a piece of their heart. Losing a child, whether in pregnancy or older, can be one of the hardest pains a parent can endure. We would like to raise awareness and show other mothers that they are not alone, that they are stronger than they realize, and that there are people out there who care dearly.

This drive was started by Kimberly, who experienced this great loss is planning to have copies of a book called “You are the Mother of all Mothers” by Angela Miller, along with handmade cards available for doctors to give to parents who lose their babies. It's a lovely gesture for women to make in order to help other women.

Here's my card. I used the sentiment from the So Sorry Stamp and Cut and the Color Layering Bird Stamps. The inks for the bird are Hero Arts Unicorn Blue for the first layer, Broken China Distress Ink for the middle layer and Hero Arts Midtone Navy for the top. The leaves are Mowed Lawn for the first layer and Broken China for the top. The sentiment outside and inside (so sorry) are in the Navy Midtone ink.

Hero Arts has created three stamps exclusively for Lasting Hearts – G6156 Mother of All Mothers, H6157 Sacred Strength, and DC185 So Sorry Stamp & Cut. Hero Arts is donating 25% of the profits from these stamps to support the Lasting Hearts efforts, in cooperation with Angela Miller, the author of “You Are The Mother of All Mothers.” These stamps are available from a2z Scrapbooking Supplies here.

If you are interested in creating a card to be given to these parents when they get a book, you can find out how on our main blog post here.

Making cards makes me happy and making cards that spread kindness makes me even happier. I'm so glad I had the chance to be a part of this card drive. I hope you'll consider joining in. Hop on over to Angie's blog to see her beautiful creation.
