My cards with english sentiments/Moje karte s engleskim sentimentima

In Uncategorized on February 13, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Greetings from the snowy Croatia! Today I have two special cards. They have english sentiments and there is a good reason for that (usually I make cards with english sentiments just for magazine submissions). A couple of years ago me and my husband had the opportunity to meet a young girl named Brittney. We lived with her for a short time here in Croatia and she became a dear friend. After she went back home she got married and we were so happy for her. Then, after just a couple of months we found out that her hubby is seriously ill (for more information you can visit this web site). We pray for them and now we have also the opportunity to help in a different way. Her parents are organizing a craft fundraiser to help them with the costs of the upcoming treatments for her husband Dan. So, I decided to send my cards with the english sentiments (and the new ones I made these days). Please, take some time and consider to join in. You can send your projects till March 3rd to the following address: Mark Sutton, 29007 Stapleford, Spring TX 77386. I know they will appreciate it.

[Pozdravi iz snijegom zatrpanog Zapresica! Danas imam dvije posebne karte. Imaju engleske sentimente i za to postoji dobar razlog (takve karte obično radim samo za natječaje stranih časopisa). Prije nekoliko godina moj muž i ja imali smo prilike upoznati jednu mladu djevojku imenom Brittney. Živjeli smo s njom ovdje u Hrvatskoj jedno kratko vrijeme, te se tako sprijateljili. Nedugo nakon što se vratila kući udala se i mi smo bili sretni zbog toga. Ali, nakon svega nekoliko mjeseci saznali smo da je njen muž ozbiljno bolestan (za više informacija možete posjetiti ovu web stranicu). Molimo za njih i sada imamo priliku pomoći na još jedan način. Njeni roditelji prikupljaju razne rukotvorine koje će kasnije prodavati kako bi sakupili novac i pomogli ovom mladom paru s troškovima liječenja. Tako sam odlučila poslati im svoje karte s engleskim sentimentima (uključujući ove koje sam napravila u proteklim danima). Molim vas, razmislite možete li se uključiti u ovu akciju. Svoje rukotvorine možete poslati do 3. ožujka na sljedeću adresu: Mark Sutton, 29007 Stapleford, Spring TX 77386. Znam da će vam Dan i Brittney biti zahvalni.]
