Well, as you have probably guessed, my challenge is Thank You Cards. No restrictions, they can be simple or elaborate. Submit a card, your name goes in the drawing. I have posted a pic of some very simple cards I made this week. Since everyone seems to have put a "twist" on their challenge, here goes mine:

Some of you may know that my DS, Jacob has autism. I know some of you also have a child with autism or at least know a person with autism. April is Autism Awareness Month, so Jacob and I have been doing our small part this month to raise awareness about this puzzling condition. Our local ASM (Autism Society of Maine) Chapter has posted on their website the need for donations of Thank You Cards. I'm asking for Shackies to donate a thank you card for this cause. For every thank you card I receive by May 16th, I'll put your name in a second (bigger and better) drawing. So, send in 1 card, I'll put your name in once, 3 cards, I'll put your name in 3 times. Get it? I'll supply the envelopes and mail the bundle off to the ASM Office. YOU WILL NEED TO ACTUALLY SEND ME YOUR THANK YOU CARDS TO BE ENTERED INTO THE SECOND DRAWING. My addy is in my profile. I left enough time so you girls across the pond and in Canada can play too. Thanks for playing and have a great time everyone!

Wonderful challenge and wonderful cards for a cause idea. My DH is a child psychiatrist and we have a son with Asperger's, so this is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts! Cards will be coming your way!

I will send envelopes too Traci as UK card sizes are slightly different to yours.
Fabulous challenges, especially the second one. Good luck with it all.

Mrs. Fence
04-24-2009, 08:48 PM
Envelopes are optional, girls, as I have a bunch and/or don't mind making some. Thanks again for participating. The girls in the ASM Office will be blown away!

I have tons of stamps, but very few "larger" thank-you stamps, not to fond of this one, but it was all I had. Next time I go shopping I will have to look for a better one. Here is my card:

Hi Tracey,

Great challenge for a GREAT cause Tracey. I have a young friend whose two children have been diagnosed with autism, and I'm familiar with the challenges of parenting and living with autism.

I did five cards, with various colours, like this one:

http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=21896

These will be in the post, along with matching stamped envelopes, tomorrow afternoon.

A question: do you want us to annotate the backs of the cards? For example, I was thinking that it might be neat if we were to indicate where the card was created, and why, for example:

"Handmade in Nova Scotia Canada for the Autism Society of Maine"

Please let us know before I pop them in the post. :cute:
