Petals for the Pittman's Fundraiser

Hi Crafty Friends,
Today I have a special card to share with you. It's created with one of the images available in the GORGEOUS floral digital stamp set from Polka Dot Orchard. This set is part of a fundraiser to help one of our own, Larissa Collins Pittman.
Larissa is a cherished part of our crafty family. Her bio is inspiring when you look and see how many amzing companies she has wored with, sharing her time, energy, and love of this incredible crafty journey. And whether you realize it or not you have been enjoying her work for years, seeing her projects for so many of the companies we all love! She NEEDS OUR HELP and as one of the most caring communities we know, we are reaching out to all our crafty friends to help us help her!
Larissa has been facing her own health issues. Gary, her husband, has been a police officer for over twenty years. He was in the process of trying to find work closer to home so that he could take care of her, when his own medical needs began to surface. He has hand MANY hospital stays, lots of ups and downs, astronomical medical bills, and is still battling, every day, to just be able to be at home and try to regain his health. They are out of money, yet the medical bils continue to mount. Please help us to help them!
