MS Walk revisited

The MS Walk was this Sunday and it was a wonderful day. The sun was shining, but it wasn't too hot and there was a nice breeze off the water in Providence. While the six and a half miles is a didn't seem too bad that day, my legs are still super sore! It's the good kind of sore though.

So far I have raised $695, which is totally awesome, and my team has raised $3,521! My goal is $750 and I still have a few weeks to collect donations. I found out at the walk that we can still collect donations until May 25. Here's the link to my page if you'd like to help me out!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I was planning to use Barbella from Stamping Bella for all my thank you notes. However, last night I decided that it was a little bit too much work what with all the masking for all 25 that I needed to make. So I decided to only send out the Barbella cards to my stamping friends. Coworkers are going to get these instead.

For these cards, I pulled out some retired embossed small note cards from Stampin' Up! I bought these a couple years ago right before they retired and had just the right amount to make 18 thank yous! The MS is stamped with the Headline Alphabet in Pallette Noir Black ink. Then walk was stamped with my Karen Foster snap stamps in Real Red Classic ink. This is the first time I've used the snap stamps and they are super cool! I got mine at Joann's, but Ellen sells them in her store as well. I finished the outside off with some red polka dot organdy ribbon from May Arts. I just bought a whole spool from Cindy. I think it's so cool to have it on the spool!

On this inside, I simply stamped Thank for your support from A Muse Art Stamps and left the rest of the inside blank so I can write my thank you note. Pretty simple and maybe a little more professional to give to my coworkers that supported me.
