mttc embossing

that's right one of my fav techniques :)
EMBOSSING
dry or wet

so for this challenge thought i'd share a sad story
my brother-in-law's nephew & his family
were the victims of a tragic fire in B.C. canada
they got out safe 
but with only each other
everything else was destroyed in the fire
the insurance company is refusing to pay :(
so this young family of 4 has nothing
here in winnipeg, manitoba
we have a special, fun way of raising money
we have things called socials
where we sell tickets to a hall
have music & food & drink
and a silent auction
this all allows people to raise $ 
for their weddings or special events
so there is a social for this family in 2 weeks
and i made an all occasion card set 
to donate to the silent auction table

breaks my heart this story
give your loved ones a hug
& make sure you and your family 
have an emergency exit plan!

I made 64 cards for the set
you will see the rest later
these are 16 of them
all the pink cards in the set are embossed
which is our theme this week :)
hope you can join us!
thanks for comin by

Oh that is what they were lol, I did wonder when I first saw them. What a great idea though, I hope you raise a lot of money. It is not until you are in these kind of situations that it makes you think, is it.
