Challenge 19 ~ Thinking Of You

Good morning and welcome to the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog for our 19th challenge.  This is the final challenge of 2010.  First we would like to thank Tracey Malnofeski of The Stamping Boutique for sponsoring our challenge last week.  We would also like to thank all of those who entered challenge 18.  There were over 100 entries.  You do an amazing job creating your projects.  I really enjoy seeing all of the different styles. 

Now I would like to explain our next challenge.  This week's challenge is a very special one for me.  Thirteen years ago I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and two years ago this coming February 6th I had a bone marrow transplant and had to be away from home for a month.  What we would like to do is collect cards for the patients at the Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston MA (this is where I had my bone marrow transplant).

To enter this challenge we are asking you to create a card that has a theme of THINKING OF YOU.  You can also use HELLO, JUST FOR YOU, & JUST A NOTE as sentiments on your cards.  We are asking that you refrain from using the sentiment of get well.  Once you have your card(s) made and posted to the challenge we are asking that you write an encouraging note in the card and address the envelope to "ANY PATIENT" and then place the card(s) in a package addressed to me at

STACY WALKER
15 WILLOW WAY
SWANVILLE, MAINE O4915
USA

When your package is on its way to me please e-mail me at twosisterschallengeblog@live.com to let me know so that I can keep an eye out for it.

Once I have collected the cards I will deliver them to the volunteers at the Brigham & Women's Hospital on January 30th (my next visit) to be handed out to patients in their transplant wards. It is our hope that when the patients receive these beautiful handmade cards and read the notes of encouragement it will brighten their day a little.

This week there will be a prize package for the winner of the challenge.  I will  post a list of the contents of the package by Monday.  If you would like a chance to win the prize package this is what we are asking you to do...

1. Create a card that has a theme of THINKING OF YOU, HELLO, JUST A NOTE. or JUST FOR YOU (please refrain from using "get well")

2. Write an encouraging note in the card and address the envelope to "ANY PATIENT"

3. Place the card(s) in a package addressed to me (at the address above)

4. E-mail me at twosisterschallengeblog@live.com to let me know that the package is on its way.

Here is what the DT has come up with to inspire you....
