RAK Request and Anniversary Card!

RAK Request

Recently my brother (Dana) has been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 cancer. He has a very short time left...ten months being the longest with treatment. It still seems very hard to believe that he will not be with us for very long. He is a 55 years old, not married nor does he have any children. He has a wonderful appreciation for simplicity in life and handmade cards. Please go to my daughters blog to read even more about him.

If anyone would like to send him a handmade card...It would be so very appreciated. Please email me for his name and email is
