A Special Card

Hello All!

Hope you had a fabulous weekend and that your week is off to a great start. I woke up this morning and couldn't remember what day it was, can you tell it's already been a loooong week and it's only Tuesday! lol Thankfully though, everyone is back to being healthy and back a school this week. And it's suppose to be in the 40's this weekend! Getting all excited here for some warmer weather! lol

I have a card to share today, one that I created for a special reason. My friend Michelle has a post on her blog asking for help from the crafting community. There is a little girl, named Haeli, who is fighting a rare form of ovarian cancer and she's only in the 6th grade. It's just so sad when anyone has to battle cancer, but even worse when it's children. Michelle is asking that anyone can and wants, please send a card to Haeli to let her know people are thinking of her and praying for her to beat this disease! You can read more about this request on Michelle's blog HERE.

The card I made for Haeli uses one of Deb's Creations sweet Emerald Faeries. This is Ebony and she's available in both rubber and digital format. You can find all the Emerald Faeries HERE. I colored this image with Copics and then paper pierced the edges. The papers are Prima Jack and Jill and I've embellished with flowers, glitter, pearls, and some ribbon and twine with a little ladybug charm.

This card fits some challenges too...
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
House of Gilli - Green
Magical Mondays - FANTASY and Spring Colours
Paper Playtime - Anything goes with a Digi
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Anything goes
Crafty Pad  - Use Ribbon

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great afternoon! And if you feel like stamping, why not make a card for Haeli.
