Dragonfly Card Drive

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a beautiful weekend! Sorry I've been quiet here for the past few days! We finally decided to take the big trip back to Taiwan on March 11; I haven't been back for 17 years... it's crazy!! I'm super happy and excited about the trip, it's going to be a challenge for the 12 hours flight with 2 kids... but I'm happy that we finally going to do it!! I'm going to be busy packing and won't be able to post as often as I would like, but I will post whenever I can.

Taylored Expression is hosting a Dragonfly Card Drive for families who have lost a child during delivery or in the earlier stage of life, for more information please visit their blog. I used the TESC101 sketch for the card I'm going to send in, feels good to be able to do some good with my cards. I hope you will join the card drive too! Have a beautiful week!




Supplies: Stampin'Up card stocks, PTI card stock, twine, Hero Arts stamps, digi stamp, pearls, SEI pp, Making Memories pp, Jenni Bowlin button

Thank you for stopping by!!

This is beautiful and for such an awesome cause! I will have to look through my stash for a dragonfly stamp.

How exciting to visit your homeland after so many years away,I'm sure the kids will be fine, just bring plenty of movies and charge up the DVD player. : )

Wow, it must be very very exciting to visit your homeland after such a long time! But I bet your family in Taiwan can`t wait to see you again!
