Surving the Empty Nest- I Am More than a Mom

Thursday, March 6, 2014

When someone steals money from a child, you shower them with love!

Today I would like to introduce you to Maddy.  This sweet girl is battling leukemia.  If that isn't enough, she now has to deal with the fact that someone stole her donation jar that was sitting on the counter of a local restaurant.  Who would steal money from a child? (Team Maddy February 10th post).

When the I Feel the Love Project read about Maddy, they decided to shower her with cards to brighten her day.  Maddy is the March 2014 I Feel the Love Project card recipient.  To learn more about how you can send Maddy a handcrafted card, please click HERE.  Maddy was most definitely the inspiration behind the card I made today.

The colors of this card came together as a result of the latest Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  I am a big fan of their blog and decided to enter this week's challenge.

I needed an adorable image as a focal point of the card.

I found this Besties digi stamp on another new favorite blog, Besties Challenge.  This digi is called "Messy Jessy."  I loved it the second I saw it and knew I would be making a card for Maddy with her.  

I hope you enjoyed my card.  I am really excited that it has a home with Maddy! I will be creating more cards for her as the month goes on.  Remember, if you would like to help spread love and support to this little girl, all you have to do is click HERE and get all the information.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - Color Challenge #250
  Besties Challenge - Anything goes (with a Bestie)
Pile it On - Bold and Bright
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by today.  
I will be back soon with another new card!
