Cards for CRY

I've been busy crafting today, I managed to make 13 cards - for charity.

On 14 March 09 Matt's friend, Nick, died days away from his 27th birthday from Sudden Cardiac Disease. Nick was a healthy and fit man who was 6 months into a photography degree. We have both been affected by his death and feel we want to raise the awareness of the condition that is killing 12 healthy adults a week. A simple ECG screening test could have highlighted a problem and enabled these young people to get preventative medical help.

CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) is a charity that runs screening programmes and aims to raise awareness of the condition amongst other things. Matt and I want to get involved in raising awareness. I'm going to sell my cards at work and give all the proceeds to CRY so they can have a little more funding to continue their important work. (Granted I probably won't make a lot but I'm sure it will be worth it!)

Here are the cards I've made so far:

This picture shows all 13 cards

This is probably my favourite card - as it has a giraffe!

I like this card too - I played around with an aqua painter for the first time today to colour the flower

This card is cased from Chic n Scratch - I liked it so wanted to make one!

All of the cards feature some Stampin Up! products somewhere along the way - a first for me!!

Until next time....
