Operation Ruthie

About a year ago we in the Hero Arts Flickr group heard that one of our members was going through a very rough patch.  Our chief organizer, Deborah, immediately got to work and organized us to send her cards twice a week, to last over a period of about 9 months.  Each of us took an alias name.  Mine was Lilac Blueblossom!  Here are some of the cards I sent in those 9 months:


This first one is a complete CASE of a card that I fell in love with by Lisa Spangler.   We also sent cards to her adult children every now and again:

            
And my final card for her:


For all of you who have asked for the source of this sentiment, it was given to me by a fellow ChemoAngel in this form as a document.  I have been unable to find it as is anywhere, but if you google "this is my wish for you poem", it should bring the words up in poetry form, and perhaps you can make your own document to be printed out.  Sorry I can't be more helpful.

We hear that Ruth is doing great and thought that, since this is the season of Secret Santas, it might be the time to reveal ourselves to her.  Congratulations, Ruthie, on fighting the good fight and winning!  And Deborah, thanks for the massive amount of work you did to pull all of us together!

  13. I have just found your blog via someon else's blog and feel I have been missing out! Your cards are delightful. I also especially like the last card with all the wishes on and the flowers over stamped. Where did that stamp come from? I too would like to know.
