I came across an amazing Stampin' Up! consultant whose name is Lynn Pratt who creates just amazing 3D items like purses, barns, pool tables, food.... you name it and I think she has either found or is trying to find a way to create a 3D item out of Stampin' Up! Cardstock. I wonder if she's found a way to make bacon yet? Hmmm, my husband would LOVE that one!!
I am a HUGE fan of the 3D items, they're so much fun and I really admire her ability to create such cool designs. In perusing Lynn's site I found that one of the really cool purses she has created was created with a profound purpose. She calls it "The Diabetes Purse" and her goal is to bring attention to Diabetes. Often Diabetes is dismissed as non-life threatening but any of us who have known people that have suffered the dibilitating affects Diabetes can have on a body know all too well that it is indeed "life-threatening." Lynns daughter Ashley is only 5 years old and she has been diagnosed with Diabetes. The purse was designed in her honor. Lynn is willing to trade you a copy of her purse tutorial for a donation to American Diabetes Association.
I hope you'll take a look, make a donation and then share the information you get from the American Diabetes Association with anyone who might read your blog or webpage by linking back to their site as I am doing.
