Sandi Madiver put out a request today thru the Technique Junkies Yahoo group for stampers to come to her house on both Oct 10 and Oct 11 to make cards for Sick Kids at Ronald McDonald House. Many of these children are in ICU where balloons and flowers are not permitted, BUT CARDS ARE. Many of the families are financial strapped because of mounting health care bills so we are trying to supply cards to them free of charge. She is located in Portland, Or if you are in that area but she is also hoping and accepting cards from anywhere and I am hoping that many of the fabulous stampers that read this blog can make cards to send and/or pass this request on to other stampers. She would like to have all cards by October 14th.
Here is her address:
5760 S.E. Gaitgill Court
Milwaukie, Oregon, 97267
PaperTemptress will gladly donate colorful cardstock if you are hold a card making get together for this event of 4 or more stampers, all you will be responsible for is shipping. Â Email Patricia
They are looking for:
Bright cheerful cards that children would like. Funny animals, sweet and cuddly type, sesame street, Sponge Bob Square Pants, Dora, anything like that. Happy, upbeat, NOT sorry your sick. Cute funny sayings, or just HI how are you, or we love you, that type of thing, with room inside for people to write. I am hoping to ship to Sherrill the Lead on this, by say Oct 14th. Any and all help is gratefully accepted.
This was the email I received thru the Technique Junkies yahoo group and I did receive Sandy’s permission to put out this request.

I am having an open house. Come on by and make a card or two for yourself, then stay a little longer and visit with me and make some for the children.
I am supplying all the materials to make the cards, I just need warm bodies in the chairs to help me out.
Come for an hour, come for the whole day.
My Hubby will even cook you lunch – hamburgers and hotdogs.
Due to sharp tools etc, we will have to make this a Adult event please
I have created some great cards for you to make and I will have a lot of it pre-cut for you,
so won’t you come by and help out.
If you can’t come and would like to contribute by mailing some cards,
