The Challenge: Given that Valentine’s Day is next Thursday, this week’s theme is: SEEING RED. Make either an ATC or 4 x 4" card using materials you already have. No buying new. Once completed, I want you to give your card to someone that did something above and beyond the call of duty, as a small "thank you". The catch … it has to be a complete stranger. Experience what it’s like to let go of your art and allow it out into the world with no strings attached.
Post’em: Post a link to your image along with the reaction of your gift in the comments below.

I made a very traditional card 4x4. The person who I (my mother) is going to give it to is a 93 year old woman in her building (a seniors home). My mother is going to put it under her door for me. I will know the comments as the lady sits at my mothers table and they are friends. My mother is not going to reveal that she knows who the card is from. This lady is wonderful I do not know her personally just to say hi etc. At 93 she volunteers for everything in the building. She helps new comers feel welcome, she helped my mother. Most of these seniors do not have family members come to visit and I felt by giving her this card and by signing it friend they would have alot of fun at there table tryhing to decide who gave her the card.
