Henry Anderson Memorial Stamp


This week has been a very sad one as a fellow stamper, blogger, and friend Sarah Anderson's 3 year old son Henry passed away. Little Henry was unable to overcome a virus that made him ill last week.

Lorie Ames has organized a way to donate for a memorial for Henry. Henryloved his local zoo and visited it almost every day in the summer. As a memorial, trees will be planted there in his honor. Melissa at Pink Cat Studio has created a digital stamp to help raise funds for a tree for Henry. All proceeds from the sale of the digi stamp, minus Paypal costs, will go towards the tree. If you would like to donate towards the tree, please visit this webpage to purchase the digi stamp:

Please click on our DT blog members' links to see a couple of cards created with this adorable stamp.

Another way to donate to the memorial is to print out this form and mail in your donation directly:

Please write on the form that the donation is for Sarah Anderson's son Henry. Once all of the money is collected, a tree and location will be selected. If you have questions about the form please contact our former Limelight DT member Lorie Ames. Lorie will be in contact with Sarah along this memorial journey to ensure that her wishes are followed. To contact Lorie, please visit her blog at

If you don't know Sarah and would like to learn more about her, please visit her blog: http://scrampinmama.blogspot.com/

Thank you for your help to raise money for a tree in memory of sweet Henry.

I will be purchasing this stamp, thanks for letting us all know! Also, every time I come to the LL blog, it asks me to log in.

Oh, this is so heartbreaking. I will be purchasing this digi stamp. I will try to get a card made this afternoon and post it on my blog to try and get the word out to more stamping friends.
Thanks for the links, Mandy.
