Please Visit Ripple.

Yesterday while visiting Lori at she told us about "Ripple". A wonderful and creative idea to help the animal victims of the oil spill.Kelly from came up with this idea and after checking out the site I wanted to donate a card.

You can see all the wonderful cards donated in hopes of helping here..

And the way Ripple works..

"Donation Details - How this works
Each sketchcard on this blog is $10.00. The $10.00 is a donation to help the animal victims of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill. Every penny is donated. The two Non-Profits that are benefiting are The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center. You can purchase a card if you donate directly to one of the non-profits and email me the confirmation and your address to The artist will mail you the signed card.

We don't have to feel helpless. We can help. Our small actions together will ripple outward. "

Here is my Donation.Its called "It all Matters".It measures 2 1/2" x 3 1 /2" and it was created using premium paper,gauze,glitter,stickers,bird die-cut,gold foil and the entire piece has been covered in beeswax.

Thank you Lori for introducing us to Ripple and thank you Kelly for coming up with this wonderful idea.

As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

Hi Cat - just catching up on all your posts now. I only get time to post and comment once a week now, so it's a mad rush to catch up with everybody when I do get the time. Anyway - I just love that little book you made a client's daughter. How delightful and so very inspiring. Hats off to you too re: Ripple. What a horrid thing this oil spill is. We REALLY need to seek out alternatives now...this spill has come to epitomise everything that is wrong in this world!!! I see the CEO of BP was out sunning himself on his private yacht today. The bastard should be down at ground zero cleaning up the poor animals that are the innocent victims of this filthy mistake.
