Layton's Legacy Card Drive, May 2018

Layton lived for 5 months in  NICU before he left the troubles of this world.  His loving mother, crafter Lea Lawson, is holding this card drive for NICU parents.  She is raising money to purchase coffee gift cards and gas cards for NICU parents, and holding a card drive to collect handmade cards in which to put the gift cards.

Freshly Made Sketches #329

This is one of many Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day cards I am making as part of Altenew's Celebrating Parents card drive for seniors in nursing homes.  It makes sense to me to make some of those cards according to the specifications given in Freshly Made Sketches.


The original sketch (FMS #329) that inspired this card is posted below.
