It's really heartbreaking when you read about what this courageous young girl and her family have been through. And I hope that by reading about their story many others will want to create and send cards to Maddy.
I wanted to create a card that might bring a smile to Maddy's face:
I know this little vase full of smiley faced flowers from the Lawn Fawn set "On the Mend" always makes me smile! After embossing a piece of white cs with a swiss dots embossing folder (and using a Darice easy folder frame to leave an unembossed oval) I embossed the flowers and sentiment from the same set and colored with copics. Difficult to see in the pic but I also added some Ranger glossy accents to the centers of the flowers.
Other Supplies Used: Papertrey ink white cs, Teresa Collins Tell Your Story pp, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder
Also, have you checked out the current Lawnscaping Challenge??? This time around it's all about coloring:
I am sooooooo glad I saw Lin's post about this card drive (Thanks Lin!). Some recent comments from a few acquaintances about how I choose to spend my free time caused me to question the value of my cardmaking. Creating this card for Maddy was a gentle reminder of why I started making cards in the first place. Making and sending a card to someone to let he/she know you care is a powerful thing!
Happy week everyone and thanks for listening:)
