Today I have a card to share that I created yesterday
when I read a plea for help from a friend and crafting colleague.
If you have a minute to share some love and make a card that would put a smile
on this man's face then please pop over to her blog posting HERE to read about it.
I read that he was (is) an artist so I immediate thought of
creating my cards using the wonderful Stampscape Stamps that don't
get enough love lately (since dies showed up on the scene! lol).
As you will read in her post, she requested short
sentiments on/within the card because he is suffering from
brain cancer and a lot of words confuse and upset him. So with that being said
and this already cut out HUGS was laying on my worktable,
I knew immediately it was meant to be so added it to the front.
It hides a bit of the scene but that's okay ... I think he'll like it.
SO MANY crafting friends shared their love and creations with me & my husband
when he was going through Hodgins Lymphoma Cancer 7 years ago
that I didn't hesitate once I read about Jerry's journey.
Fortunately my husband could have a stem cell transplant and he's been cancer
free for 7 years now (thank GOD!) but I'm sorry to say that there just
aren't enough of these miracles to go around for all who are afflicted by this horrible disease!
SO PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE & A STAMP
to bring some joy into the life of another person ... even if they are a stranger!
Hoping to help get the word out ... I'd like to share my card in the following challenges:
