Get well soon Paige

This card is for a very special cause which you can read about over at Stamp Something. A 13 year old called Paige was injured in a serious boating accident and has had part of her arm amputated. The challenge is to use your favourite stamp and some punching or die cutting and if you would like to send Paige your card so much the better, though this is optional. My card will be winging its way to Paige in Boston, Massachusetts. (Just realised I made a joke there as the image is an angel.) How do you choose your fave stamp, well it is impossible. This is one of my new Whiff of Joy stamps that I have been itching to use and as she is a guardian angel I thought she was very appropriate for Paige. Let's hope she recovers soon.

The lovely sketch is from Whiff of Joy. The challenge at Secret Crafter is flights of fancy and angels and fairies is the theme at Papertake. She is girly and glittery for the challenge at Passion for Promarkers. Swirls, curls and hearts is for Charisma.

Die Cut Dreams are looking for DT members and in order to enter you have to make a pink card so here is my entry.
The weather has been awful today, rain and wind so let's hope for better weather this weekend. Must go, dinner to cook but will catch up with your blogs this weekend.

Hi Marianne!
What a beautiful card. I love the colours and all of the details!

I must admit to be curious when I see a "norwegian" name in a card challenge... and often I must abrod to find the person behind the name. *LOL*

Have a nice weekend!

Nice post. It is always good to see people expressing themselves in different ways.

Since you seem to be associated with Management, I would like to suggest you a new magazine - PEOPLE MATTERS started by an ISB Alumni, which was suggested to me by a friend and which I have found very useful.

It deals with various important aspects of management, especially those related to Leadership & People Management, which the mainstream business publications often ignore.

It's also relatively cheap. I guess its annual subscription is about Rs. 400 (US$ 8 approx) which is even less than the cost of a standard Pizza.

Their last issue had an enlightening article by Robert Kaplan (the co-founder of Balanced Scorecard method, if you remember) where he talks about how organisations can create opportunities out of current economic downturn.

I got its subscription online through their website:

If you like the magazine, kindly refer it to your friends or colleagues in the organization you work. They may be interested in subscribing to it.
