Happy Thursday everyone! It is hard to believe it is almost the weekend again. Thanks for all the sweet comments you left in the last post about my heart box. It is on it's way to a good home. I have relisted it in my shop as a made to order item now if anyone else is interested in buying one. I hope all of you that requested the files will be sure to share what you make with them. I would love to see what you come up with. For those of you that don't have a Cricut would you be interested in buying the template pre-cut? I have been thinking about selling them that way but wanted to see what kind of interest there was first.
Today I want to share with you a card I made for a fellow blogger/stamper Katie Renz who is currently battling Stomach Cancer. You can read more about what she is going through here. Jennifer Ellefson in the Papertrey forum organized a card drive called Operation Sunshine to send Katie cards. It broke my heart after I read her story so I decided to join in. This is the card I made for her and is on the way.
I decided to go with a sun card to represent the sunshine and I also used bright happy colors in the hope they will brighten her day too.
I got the template for the sun here then made it into an svg file and cut it out with my Cricut. I used Cosmo Cricket Delovely cardstock for the base that I have been hoarding for awhile now. This was the perfect change to start using it. The flower image is from the PTI You Additions stamp set. It was to big to fit on the card as is so I stamped it, scanned it and resized it then printed it out and colored it with my Copics. To finish it off I punched some turquoise circles then added them to the back of the main image to create a scallop mat. The back of the card looks like this.
Katie is documenting her journey on her blog now so I know what she is going through is very hard. She sounds like a fighter though so hopefully she can beat this. In the meantime I hope these cards I send her will put a smile on her face and bring her some happiness for awhile.
That's all for now. My Papertrey new release order is suppose to arrive today which is a welcome surprise since it took forever to get my order last month. I will be back soon with more things to share Until then I hope you have a great day and as always thanks for stopping by.
