Dawn B, Cape May NJ

About Dawn
My name is Dawn, I am married to a great guy who does not mind that I have taken over our bedroom with crafting stuff. I have three boys 17,12,7. They also don’t mind that my hands are always inky! I work full time as a dental assistant (don’t forget to floss) and I love to create, I started as a scrapbooker (gasp) and that just never felt rewarding, there was never a finished project. With cards it’s instant rewards, and I love that I can be out of the box with my shapes colors patterns etc. It’s so much fun. I am so happy that I found Sandy, and Cards for Heroes — what a great way for me to give back to those who give us so much. You can’t put a price on freedom, but you can bless those that serve it!


How long have you been making cards?
I started a few years ago, I really enjoy it, after all we all need something to collect!


How long have you been making cards for CFH?
Not very long, less than a year. My current goal is 100 holiday cards. I love the thought of our heroes being able to send notes home to their families!


What is your favorite kind of card to make?
Oh, this is a hard one! I really like all cards. I do like making teen punk stlye cards. Those are so fun, using funky colors. (How cool is it for a dad or mom to send a card perfect for their teen)


Do you have a special technique you love to use?
Can you pick an easy question next time!!! I like to emboss & I am fond of stickles. Does that count? wink


Colors, style, or product that draw you? This really depends on the season, I love the hot pink / black combo, I also really like fun patterns and those type of things!


What is your motivation to make cards for our heroes?
Finally an easy question . . . Serving is a part of what I need to do. Sometimes as cardmakers we create a card just for the fun of it, and now having a place to send them is like an answer to prayer. Knowing that a wife, husband, mother or father or a little one will get a letter in the mail in a homemade card is just so rewarding. Anyone can email, but there is something about a handwritten letter that just holds close to one’s heart! I was so blessed to find Sandy, and her heart is so huge and so pure how can one not want to help an effort that is one out of 100% love.
