Happy Sunday All!

Well today I am sharing with you a card that I made for a very specific reason!  Sweet Maddison over at I Feel the Love Project is doing an awesome card charity this month that is near and dear to my heart, since it is a dear family friend that is being honored!

Her cause this month is to make a card for a very special dad that has been undergoing some hardships and needs some TLC  to help lift his spirit.  Sadly, my friend Reggie fits the bill.  He is watching his 22 year-old daughter battle a rare form of pediatric cancer for a second time in her life.  The first battle was when she was five and she lost her kidney during that battle.  This time around she is battling an unrelated form of rare cancer with only one kidney.  This is a very close knit family and if one hurts, they all hurt and they are all in it together with Reggie and his wife being the first to carry the burden of it all.

He has such a positive outlook and and being an Electrician, I thought he would get a kick out of  this card I made using my Silhouette, some twine and great paper from Paper Issues (Glitz- Cashmere Dame), buttons and some random wire I had lying around.  I did some faux stitching and distressed the die cuts and card with Close to My Heart Slate and White Daisy.

Please head over and check out all the details of this month’s cause and I hope you can find time to LINK up a card for him as a form of encouragement, I would love just overwhelm him with so many cards!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “just crafting for a good friend” pie with me!

I Feel The Love Call For Cards From Funky Cards

There is this amazing young lady from, Funky Cards,  that has an opportunity for crafters to make a special card for a person/family going through challenging times.  This is my contribution to her “I Feel the Love Project“.  Thank you Funky Cards for this amazing opportunity to touch such a wonderful little girl and her family. 

This project touches me especially since I was a nanny for a family, while in college, that had a little girl who was in treatment and recovery stages of having a brain tumor that came back twice.  She was 18 months when I started and I got to be a part of her treatment plans (PT/OT, removal of feeding tubes and central lines), learning to walk, sing, play, and most of all be in remission.  She is now almost 18 years of age!  Many special prayers and thoughts go to Marley and her family!
