Thanks!!

Have you visited Cammie's blog and check the great blog candy she is offering??? More the 1,000 dollars in prizes, awesome !!!!, but why? you may ask, well, her grandmother passed away last June from consequences of Alzheimer disease and yesterday in celebration of the World's Alzheimer Day, Cammie is asking to make a card for all the caregivers who take care of the people affected with this disease.
When I read that, I was in tears, my Father-in-law is suffering from this disease, hard to believe 6 years ago when I met him, he was working, driving, being so active, and now he is in a Nursing home, hardly talks, moves or does anything by himself. This disease is really aggressive, and he is going down very fast. Yesterday I called my Mother-in-law and told her that it was the World's Alzheimer Day. I asked her the name o f the Nursing home and it is "Riverside" located in Centralia, WA. (This is a picture of him and DD and DH last Christmas when we visited him)I told her I will make some cards so she could give them to the people are taking care of him, she agreed and was very thankful.
Please, if you know anybody suffering from this disease, send a card to the caregiver, or maybe you don't know anybody, but you know a Nursing home taking care of the people affected , just go there and leave a card for the staff, I bet they will appreciate it very much.
Card Recipe:
Card stock: White (GP)
Paper: American Craft (not sure about it)
Stamps: Sea Life by H&MStamps
Ink: Buckaroo blue.
Embellishments: Offray Satin ribbon (Antique Blue), Mini rhinestone.
I hope you like it.
God bless.
