Still time to send a card for Emma!
Hello friends : ) Today I will be sharing three cards that I made for Emma. She is an 8 year old little girl with Leukemia. Our blog friend, Kelly, of Kelly's Place blog has organized a card drive for Emma which will end on July 20, 2014. The cards that Kelly receives have been being given to Emma weekly : ) You can see all the details HERE.
I praise God that I have never heard those dreadful words associated with my children or grandchildren. I cannot imagine how hard it would be as a Mom to watch your little one undergo treatment like Emma has gone though in the past 8 months. I see from her Caring Bridge site that Emma will begin a 2 year maintenance plan later this month. : ) I hope and pray the worst is behind her and her family.
Emma loves the colors green, purple and blue. She has no siblings. She has two dogs, a cat and a fish. She LOVES horses and bunnies. She enjoys horseback riding, swimming, dancing and singing. : ) Please consider joining this card drive - there is still time! : )
My first card features a digi image from Mo's digital Pencil. I colored her from bottom to top in the colors of the rainbow : ) I am such a kid!! I love coloring : ) I used my Prisma pencils and Gansol to shade. The sentiment is from A Round Array by SU.
Next I created this card using another digi. This digi was a freebie from Becky Oehlers you can find the download HERE. I created the "grass" in my card by stamping a small flower in two shades of green ink all over. Then I created the blue in the sky by stamping a small cluster of flowers and a swirl all over the sky : ) I have never tried filling in a large area using stamped images like this before and I think I like it!
I pierced holes along the stitched line on the "ground" and tied actual thread along the lines holding the clouds and the sun. Just a fun card for Emma that I topped off with plenty of bling bling cuz GIRLS just LOVE bling!! (girls of all ages!).
EDITED TO ADD: The following Digi is from CC Designs. You can see this sweet digi HERE. Many thanks!! to Shanna from The Stamping Banana blog for helping me to identify this cutie!! : )
My last card is also a digi image but sadly I cannot remember the name or the company where I bought it. If anyone knows I will be glad to edit my post to add the name. I want to give credit where credit is due!! This sweet faced little girl comes without a smile! I know any Magnolia Stamp lovers will not like this but I kind of hate!seeing images of people without a mouth! eek sorry.... so anyway I drew one in! LOL I printed out a large version of this digi on an 8.5 x 11" paper for Emma to color herself. I left the mouth off so she can make the smile of her choice! : )
I hope you will join this really wonderful outreach by sending a kid friendly card too : ) Kelly has organized a really nice collection of prizes including... a gift certificate from one of my very own hand crafted neckStyles™ infinity scarves from my Etsy shop!! : )
