Layton’s Legacy Blog Hop with CAS-ual Fridays

Hello, thank you for stopping by!   This morning, I've got a card to share using stamps and dies from CAS-ual Fridays for a very special cause, Layton's Legacy Card Drive & Fundraiser!   This is an amazing effort put together by Lea Lawson to raise money to purchase Starbucks gift cards for parents whose children are in the NICU of the University of Minnesota Masonic CHildren's Hospital.  You can read all of the details of Lea's story and find out more about this fundraiser in her son Layton's honor here!

Since the fundraising efforts are going to be used to purchase Starbucks gift cards, I thought a coffee card with an uplifting message would be very appropriate!   I used the soothing colors found on Lea's mood board to create this card.   

I die cut all of the To Go Cup elements and stamped the design on the cup wrap with Modern Petals.   The background was created with the larger stamp border also found in the Modern Petals stamp set.  The sentiment, from Dream Then Do, was heat embossed to finish off the card.

Check out all of the sponsors and prizes involved in this great fundraising effort!   You can join in too, by donating, sharing the fundraising link, and/or creating cards that will be given along with the gift cards!   All of the details are on Lea's blog, so be sure to head over there if you haven't already!  

CAS-ual Fridays is very generously donating 15% of sales through May 19th to Layton's Legacy.   If you were thinking of making a purchase, now is the time!    Thanks so much to all of the sponsors and to Lea for organizing this amazing effort in honor of her baby boy - it will brighten the day for so many people going through one of the most stressful things imaginable.  And thank YOU, crafty friends,  for any way you can help out!
