Cards For Grace

Hi all! Jennifer McGuire is hosting a new and urgent card drive for a little girl. Her name is Grace, she lost her twin sister to cancer very recently. Jennifer is asking all to make and send cards to Grace to cheer her up. Please go to this link to read about all the details.

Here is a card that I made for Grace:

All the patterned papers that I used are from Brandy Buffington's digital kit Garden Party. I think the pretty pinks are perfect for a little girl. I sprinkled some glitters that came with the kit on the background paper to add a little interest.

The adorable image that I used is called Sophie from Mo's Digital Pencil. I also based my card design on this beautiful layout. The sentiment is from SRM Stickers.

Hope you will be able to send Grace some cheerful or "thinking of you" cards. It's really amazing how a simple card could brighten a little girl's day, so please help her if you can! =) Also, Jennifer's Cards For Kids card drive round 3 just started, you can find information about it here.

Oh, how sad for that little girl! It's heart breaking, especially for a twin. It's like they are half of a whole or something. I sure hope all the cards help cheer her up, bless her heart. Your card is adorable, Alice. Pure perfection.
