Is This the Right Fit for Me?

You love creating cards, and the idea of offering them to brighten up someone’s day during a difficult season is exciting and motivating to you. Maybe you make more cards than you know what to do with, but don’t want to sell them. Maybe you need a motivation to get back into your craft room. Or maybe creating cards is a new idea for you, but you love stationery and are up for trying out card-making for an important cause. You’ll put love and care into each card.
