A challenge to thank a caregiver you know!

Through browsing Lisa Henke's blog I have found a wonderful blogger, Cammie (Carolyn King) who is hosting a challenge to benefit something near and dear to her heart. She has asked for all who participate to please send a thank you to someone who cares for Alzheimers patients. Please see this post for details... but I'll tell you there are $1000 in donated products for the random lucky winner that posts the card he/she sent for this cause. I am glad to help Cammie out in her quest to thank these individuals- it must be a very difficult job for sure!

So, here is my card that I will be sending to a local nursing home. I don't know anyone directly that is a caregiver for Alzheimer's patients, but I hope receiving an anonymous thank you lets the recipient know she/he's appreciated!
On to the card details, the layout is from Beate's weekly Weekend Sketch Challenge. Who doesn't love Beate?! Colors are in recognition of the first day of Autumn today!
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out Cammie's great effort!

The fall colors are fabulous and that ribbon looks great how you used it. I just got some of it, so I'm going to have to try it on a card like this. I'm glad to call you my friend, too :)
