Two cards to share in honor of Michelle and Bella!!

Hi Everyone!! I just wanted to share a couple of cards with you that I made for two special events over at Whimsy where Denise and the rest of the team are trying to share the love with those in need.

The first is a card I created for Michelle Oatman who recently suffered a tragic accident which has left her with the loss of her right eye. The stamping community is once again coming together to show support for Michelle by sending her well wishes and cards. The Whimsy team is proud to support the card drive being held by our Senior Designer Debbie Eastman and the Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge blog for Michelle.

The donkey image on my card is created by owner and artist for Meljen's Designs. The sentiment is created by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs to coordinate with this image. Both are available to download for FREE. You can download this freebie set now by visiting the main store page at Whimsy. You can find more information about Michelle, her mailing info, and this card drive on the Spoon Full of Sugar Blog. We would love to flood Michelle's mailbox with happy mail!!

My second creation is one I made for Bella.
Bella is a member of the same gymnastics group as Whimsy's Senior Designer Erin's daughter, and is a very brave little girl, eight years old, who has been through a horrific experience that will change her life forever. She has been through so much. You can read all about Bella and her story HERE

For Bella's card I used the Hang in There Digital image and sentiments from Whimsy as well as the rubber sentiment Whimsy Circle Postmarks. The image is completely paper pieced. The image panel is a pocket where the ticket sticks can pulled out of.

Erin is hoping that we can all shower Bella with cards for the rest of the month. We all are crafting anyway....So, please, if you have the time, send a card to Bella!! It does not have to be a new card. It can be one from your stash. We want that PO Box stuffed to the brim everyday with cards from around the world! Let's send Bella wishes and smiles!!! How many cards do you think we can get?????

The mailing address is:

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a great day!
