I recently stumbled upon the Layton's Legacy and immediately knew I needed to make some cards for the cause. You can read more about Lea & Layton's story here. In short - this amazing mother is raising money to help families with babies in the NICU at The University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. She will be giving out gift cards for Starbucks (right across the street) and is asking for card donations. I've been making cards for years now and this will be my first organization donation. I hope to continue because the idea of spreading a little kindness feels good. Below is the card I created to donate.
For this I used mostly Lawn Fawn products - Critters in the Forest, A Birdie Told Me, and the Gingham Backdrops. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up from the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit. To get the mountain background I cut my own stencil and sponged the different elements. I would love to get a mountain die set but this will work for now...
I'm planning on creating more but I specifically designed this card to go along with the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #28. I'll post again if I get a couple more cards made for Layton's Legacy.
I hope this card brings a smile to the face of a family dealing with life in the NICU.
