Calling All Cardmakers – A Fellow Crafter In Need


A few days ago, a fellow crafter – Heidi Swapp – lost her second oldest son. I can’t imagine the pain she, her husband and her other four children are feeling. I am sending constant prayers.

The kind folks over at Persnickety Prints is collecting cards for Heidi and her family. I hope you will consider sending one. This is a wonderful way to express kindness to a fellow crafter.

I know this card making community is a giving one so I hope we can send her lots of hugs in the form of a handmade card.

Thank you for considering. Here is the info:

  19. On NO! I am so sad for this family! I know how much it broke my Mom’s heart when we lost my “baby” brother, who was the youngest and the only SON. He was killed in a tragic accident while on vacation in Antiqua back in 1999….only 33 years old and had not even begun to LIVE his life. I was also devasted to lose him and still miss HIM every day. My boys never had much time with “Uncle Greg”, but we continue to share memories with them.

    I will be happy in a bittersweet way to send a card. I still have EVERY card I re’cd after losing Greg (and my Dad) and I love to read them every now and then…they do MATTER and mean a lot to those who receive them.

    Thanks for sharing…this is such sad news…..

    Hugs to ALL,
    ~~ Lisa
