Recently on Facebook they were sharing a post about a little boy in Michigan who said he had no friends. He fights Asperger's Syndrome. He did not want a birthday party because no one would come. The world has come together to show Colin, he does indeed have many people who care about him. This is my birthday card for him.
I am entering this in the weekly challenge at Just Add Ink. Their challenge this week is to "Just Add Stripes." I loved the colors in this paper from Authentique. The monkey stamp is from Stampendous. I hope it makes Colin smile. If you wish to send him a card his address is Colin, PO Box 756, Richland, MI 49083
My second card using the same image is for a little boy in my home town who is battling cancer. I am going to try and send him a card each month. I just used a general Hello sentiment for his card. I did not realize that both their names were Colin. This card is for Colin Cahill, 819 Chapman St, Milton, WI 53563
I think it is important to give back to our communities, to people who are battling diseases and to show people we care. I am so glad I have my card making talents so I can make people smile.
Thanks for stopping by.
