A Helping Hand

Hi scrappers, this is Kate from Sassy and Scrappy! Today's post is not your usual craft project, it's actually a call for prayers and support. On Saturday the 23 of July, a close friend of mine found out her children's home was on fire. Her twin daughters and their families all live together on Bainbridge Island, WA where their significant others are Coast Guards. In a freak accident their home was gone, they lost everything. Thankfully everyone was able to get out of the house. Praise God.

As you can imagine the loss and fear of what could have happened is overwhelming. Trying to start over and build your life from scratch with 2 small children is difficult, to say the least. So I would like to ask all of you amazing and supportive crafty friends if you could send a card of encouragement. Something that may help lift their spirits as they make their way through this difficult transition.

As a friend of their mother I just felt at such a loss. I was out of town when the fire happened and couldn't be as supportive as I would have liked. But I did decide to make some thank you cards for them to send out to those who have donated clothing, kitchen supplies, toys, etc for their family. I used my Imagine to quickly create multiple cards.

It was so easy to print out multiple sentiments and background paper for my cards. One thing the Imagine has, can't recall if the E2 does as well, is an 'art quantity' button on the print screen. I simply told it how many of each sentiment I wanted, loaded white paper and off it went.

If you'd like to help out in any way here is the information:
