For Emily

Hello friends.  Many of you in blogland know Jennifer McGuire, and all month she has been sharing posts about kindness and small acts we all can do to make someone's life brighter.  Last week Jennifer shared about 2 young children fighting cancer and the card shower she wanted to throw for them.  You can read all about it right HERE.  My heart was so touched by the little girl Emily's story, who is a 6 year old who has been battling Neuroblastoma since she was 4.  Because I have 3 healthy daughters, I could not NOT make a card to share with Emily!  So hopefully this card will bring a smile to her face!

This little egg shaped snowman from Paper Smooches Warm Hearts set just melts my heart and I hope it will Emily's too!  Emily's favorite color is dark pink, so I blended Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, & Picked Raspberry Distress inks over my back ground that I had first embossed a few snowflakes on in white.  The "sending" "Hugs" were stamped and die cut from PTI's Big Hugs set.  The silver candy cane stripes on the sides were stamped from Winnie & Walter's Holiday Trimmings stamp set.  I really like how this simple card came out and hope Emily will like it too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and am hoping we can all take time this week to reflect on all we been blessed with..."Let our lives be full of both THANKS and GIVING"! :0)

Marcia, I know you are going to think me crazy...I got up early so I could see if there was a new tag I could make before I get on the plane to Hawaii...sadly NO!! But it is good because now I can peruse others and took a look see at some of your tags...YOU, friend are going to town too and I love these tags (and cards) from Warm Hearts!! Oh, I have that set too, now I can copy YOU!! but it will have to wait until much later. Have a beautiful Thanksgiving!! Heart Hugs!! Colleen
