Sheffield Place

Hello! I hope everyone is having a great day! I am excited to share with you a project I have been working on for about a month now. At the beginning of May I noticed that one another crafty blog (Funky Cards) that there was a Mother's Day card drive for a Women and Children's shelter in Kansas City, Missouri called Sheffield Place. So I decided to send a card off to them. I included a short note about how I came across the card drive and wrote my email at the bottom--expecting nothing else-I mailed it off and forgot about it. Until a few days later I get an email from the Director of Programs, David, thanking me for my card! I was stunned. What a nice thing for him to do!! I emailed him back and asked a few questions about the Sheffield Place and volunteered to make some more cards for the families that live there.
This place does AMAZING things for women and children. Please take a minute to either friend them on Facebook (so you can be updated with all the programs they do!) or just read about them at Sheffield Place.

So I wanted to share with you what I created for them!!
