Merry Wishes -Unconventional Christmas Card
Recently I watched a TED talk by Hannah Brencher on "Love Letters to Strangers". Feeling inspired, I went to the website: http://www.moreloveletters.com/ and couldn't stop reading! I wrote my first letter to a stranger and signed up for the 12 days of Christmas letter challenge. Today is letter # 3 to Rosemary who is battling lung cancer and in need of encouragement. Her daughter mentioned that she likes pigs, so I took the challenge to make a Christmas card with a pig on it!. The great thing about card making challenges is it gives you lot's of ideas from sketches to themes to embellishments. I Used the letter N from the bingo challenge and die cut my stamped images of pigs as well as snowflakes. I used the color blue and silver, along with a silver ribbon and washi tape.
My hope is that more card makers will take the challenge to write love letters to strangers globally.
