TESC101 - Dragonfly Card Drive


Happy Friday Friends! Today's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge is a very special one.
Taylor is kicking off a card drive today to benefit the Neo-natal Unit at Sanford Medical Center in Sioux Falls SD. Taylor has both a friend and a sister-in-law who work as labor and delivery nurses at SMC where they use the dragonfly as a symbol of hope for families who have lost a child during delivery or in the early stages of life and they have requested hand-made cards featuring dragonfly images. This was one of the driving forces behind the design of Discover Your Wings.

And now we need your help. Would you please consider making and donating some cards that feature a dragonfly? You may use stamps from any company - they do not need to be from TE. As a thank you for participating Taylor will enter your name into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to the TE Store. You can get the full details here at Taylor's Blog. So in honor of TESC101 - Dragonfly Card Drive, I created this bright card in hopes to bring a little comfort to a family. This is truly a wonderful cause to participate in and I am glad to be a part of this amazing card drive. To be able to do something we love and share it with others is a true gift.

We hope you will all be able to participate. Please be sure to visit the rest of the TESC Sketch Crew for their beautiful Dragonfly creations:
