I hope you are all having a good day. After a nasty thunderstorm this morning it has been so hot here it doesn't even feel like we have the air conditioner on. I am glad that we were not part of the 20,000 people in Kenosha county to be without power again. I think 22 hours 2 weeks ago is enough to last me a lifetime.
I made this card for two purposes today. Of course there is the Split coast stampers CAS challenge but most importantly I made this card for a very dear little girl from my church who is battling some debilitating illness right now. I am a T&T Awana leader at my church and I have become pretty close with this little girl and instead of having a summer full of fun, she is enduring countless trips to the doctor for more tests, the hospital for spinal taps and the list goes on. Last night at my church we had a dinner and a movie night and she is in so much pain that I couldn't even hug her or put my hand on her to comfort her. I hate to see such a young person endure so much. I made this card to cheer her up I thought it was a little fun and bright.
We have made a celebration lunch date at Panera Bread to celebrate when she is feeling better. I am so looking forward to it. Please keep Emily and her family in your prayers for peace, and recovery.
For my card I chose an individual stamp that I got ions ago from the The Angel Company. I do not know the name of the stamp but I thought it was perfect for Emily,. I chose white and hot pink for my cardstock. I punched out the edges with one of my Martha Stewart edge punches on the white and pink. I mounted those to the card in which I off set the fold in order to show off the detail. I punched the image onto white cardstock with Stampin Up's - Pink Passion ink pad then I mounted that to the hot pink cardstock. I also stamped from Stampin Up's - Mini Mates the sentiment with the same ink and mounted the same way. Using pop dots I mounted them to my card base. Then to make the card pop I added a small ribbon with pink and purple hearts.
I hope you enjoyed this very personal card. Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a blessed day.
