Join our fight to stop human trafficking!

First of all, my apologies if you were notified about this post and all it had was the title - I don't know how I managed to hit "post" while in the process of typing just the title! I'll chalk it up to sleep deprivation!!

So anyway - I stamped! Woohoo! This is a pretty amazing accomplishment, not only because I have a two week old who lately has been loving to nurse every HOUR, but also because my two *year* old has an ear infection and has been a very unhappy camper. And the two year old *LOVES* his baby sister and wants to hug her all the time, so the two week old also has a cold and cannot breathe very well when she's lying down. *sigh* Isn't parenthood fun??

But enough whining (sorry I do that so much these days - I thought I'd quit once I wasn't pregnant anymore...!) - on to the card! I've mentioned before that I'm a member of the Zonta Club of Austin. Zonta is an international service & advocacy organization, working to advance the status of women worldwide. One of Zonta International's projects is the fight against human trafficking, aka modern day slavery. Our Austin club is joining the battle. This Saturday we are hosting a luncheon and panel discussion to help raise awareness in the Austin area - and beyond! We have ladies joining us from various parts of Texas and as far as Louisiana! It's not too late to join us! We have arranged for some excellent speakers, and the luncheon is at a really beautiful location in Austin. And, we're also having a silent auction! So of course I had to donate some cards for the auction. This is one of three designs that will be included in the box of twelve that I'm donating (Zonta girls, what do you think?). The Z is our Zonta logo, and I downloaded it from the website, printed it and then enhanced it with Stickles. The symbol of Zonta is the yellow rose, so of course I had to pull out Roses in Winter. And Zonta's color is burgundy so I had to use that as well. Now I just need to make 3 more of this card, and then come up with 2 more designs and make 4 of each of them, and get them to the silent auction coordinator tomorrow (they were due last weekend, oops). Wish me luck! :-) And thanks for stopping by today.

  • Stamps: Rose in Winter, Rrench Script
  • Paper: Kraft, Very Vanilla, Bravo Burgundy
  • Ink: Barely Banana, So Saffron, Summer Sun, Bravo Burgundy, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip
  • Accessories: Corner rounder, gold brads, gold Stickles, ribbon, Zonta logo downloaded from Internet (I also used Leslie's TP technique)


  1. Your card is gorgeous, Libby!! I love your yellow roses, color combo, scallops...everything!!

    I hope Carter is feeling better, and that the rest of the family stays healthy!!

  2. I love the burgundy and yellow together. The layout--everything is quite a nice combination. Clever to use the Zonta logo and pretty it up with Stickles! Good luck to your cause!


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
