Charity card!

Hi Everyone, a request to me for a card to a couple who run a charity in Africa to shoe children. I wasn't aware of it, but was sent a few details of them. This is a very personal card but I decided to post it, as I admire what this family are doing.

She didn't let me know what she wanted, so I went with my heart and it was done in double quick time.

I searched for Happy in my files and came up with a few images that I decided to use. I thought Africa is a colourful place so made it bright and happy (I hope). The centre shoe image, I have been told, is their logo and was requested to use it and if possible make something they could frame.

I found photos on the web about the family and the charity so did a sort of scrapbook page on a card, I hope they'll like it. I included the colourful shoes they are giving and something that I picked up from their blog, which gives the reason the charity is named as it is.

This is the preprinted inside, I was asked to include the sentiment. 


  1. What a wonderful card Faith and for such a lovely cause. I like that you included their logo, I bet they were over the moon for this one! hugs :)
