Today, Sunday, September 21st, is World Alzheimer’s Day.  Recently Carolyn King’s (Cammie) grandmother passed away from the effects of this devastating disease.  And now in remembrance of her grandmother, Carolyn has illustrated a stamp set called “Whimsical Autumn”.  It has been released with Gina K. Designs.  The remarkable thing here is that Carolyn is giving 100% of her proceeds from the sale of this stamp set to the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of her grandmother..  So with that in mind I just had to purchase this adorable set.  Here is the card I made with it.


I first stamped the pumpkin image, masked it and then stamped the basket of apples.  The images have been painted using reinkers.

The Flourishes Design Team as well as the Friends of Flourishes Designers have come together to support Carolyn in this effort.  We have all purchased the set and are sharing our work today on our blogs.  Check them out and see what everyone has done.  And, if you can, purchase Carolyn’s set, too, to further help in the cause.
