Friendship Card Plus An Innovative Card Idea For Charity

I've been experimenting with using doilies on my handmade cards. The sentiment on this card says
Friendship is what binds the world together in peace.

For Christmas I received  a wonderful card from my sister - not handmade, but amazing all the same. It was a card saying a donation had been made in my name to help a woman start a small business in Sri Lanka in the wake of the Tsunami and Civil War.

This is through an Oxfam initiative offering other great gift card ideas for sponsoring a bicycle ambulance, clean running water, chickens etc. Best of all, these cards can be given all year round. Great to see imagination, creativity and reaching out all come together.

And I love the idea of a card. Like our handmade cards, there's a sense of connection and something special in a card picked out especially for you.  Wishing you all everything wonderful for 2011.


  1. This is beautiful, Yvonne! I love the purples and the doily. The card your sister gave you is so meaningful! I love that.
