I came across this post the other day from Scrappin KY Momma asking for all of us card makers to make a card and send "smiles" to a 2 year old little boy who was recently diagnosed with T-cell Leukemia. My heart went out to him and his family. Here is Aidan's story - my card and Terrific Tuesday Challenge is below.
Aidan is a sweet lil 2 year old who was recently diagnosed with T Cell Leukemia. On Wednesday, he had a port installed in his chest, spinal tap, bone marrow, and chemo in his spine. He did GREAT! This lil guy is such a trooper. His parents have accepted that their BABY has Leukemia.. NOT the easiest thing to accept, but their faith in God and their support system have kept them going. T-Cell Leukemia has a high cure rate although chemo will be continued for quite a while. Lil Aidan LOVES mail, like any 2 year old does. So....
I need your help. Let's get our crafting supplies out and send this lil guy some LOVE!!! Pass this on to all your crafty friends. I think we can all take a couple minutes and make something special for him that will bring LOTS of smiles and he can look at over and over.
Please mail your cards to: AIDAN

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - CREATE-A-CRITTER
Scrappy Moms Stamps terrific tuesday challenge is Create a critter Thats an easy one. Happens to be one of my favorite cartridges. My card is made with Aidan in mind. Something that a 2 year old boy would recognize and be able to talk about.
For this card I used:
Card base is from Birthday Bash cut at 5"
Wagon is from Just because cards cut at 4.75
dog is create a critter cut at 2.5" and of course peachy keen stamps - critter faces for the face
The sentiment is from Just because cards cut at 1.5 I ended up cutting it with my Imagine - it just handles the small letters so much better
I used random scraps for all the paper except the square is from the DCWV pet pack
I started to put buttons on the wheels and then remembered that I was making this card for a 2 year old so no buttons!
