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 HEREMany 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!! : )

Let me sum up this ever so long post by announcing that these three cards bring my total cards to 87 cards completed!! in my challenge to create 100 cards in 100 days!! I only have ELEVEN! days left to make 13 cards!! I appreciate all the wonderful comments you've left.  Just a reminder that you increase your chance of winning my BLOG CANDY with every comment you leave!  See all the DEETS HERE!

Thanks a bunch!! Have a great day!

These are beautiful cards for Emma, Patti! Love the angle die you used in the top one. Love how you stamped the sky and grass in the second one and I love the smile on the girl in the third one. I'm like you - I prefer to see a mouth on stamped faces! You did such a lovely job incorporating Emma's favourite colours - I know she'll love these! Only 13 more to go, my friend - and I know you can do it! Can you believe you have made 87 so far - that's amazing!

Another 3 great cards. Getting so close. That is great that you were able to help and send to Emma. I regularly donate cards to my local children's hospital.
