Life can be so abundantly rich if you spend your thoughts and efforts focused on other people; their wants, needs, and how you can help.
Blessing... it's not just a word it's a way of life!
My card today is reminiscent of that.
Perhaps it is the vibrant spring yellow,
the flowers in bloom, the intertwining symbolism of the ribbons and vines that make up

Hi fellow crafters. I have a story to tell today....
Earlier this week my sister, who works for a school system, contacted me regarding one of the middle school students. This young lady, Haeli, is in 6th grade, just like my little girl. Haeli is dealing with a very serious disease, something that is even hard for an adult to deal with... cancer. She has a rare form of ovarian cancer. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy.
The first thing I thought of was all the friends I have made in blog land while crafting. I thought of all the beautiful cards and scrapbooks people make. And, I thought, this little girl would probably really like to receive cards and other craft items from all over the US as well as the world. I am sure this would inspire her own paper crafting. So that is where you all come in! I would love to send this young lady anything to bring a smile to her face. My sister tells me she is interested in art, and her teachers say she is quite talented, so I am putting a basket together of scrapbook/stamping items for her to use. Also, I am asking you, my followers/friends to send her a card. Of course if you want to send her a little something else, stickers, embellishments etc, I am sure she would love that as well. Maybe for a moment we can take her mind off her illness!
So fellow crafters, I humbly ask for your help here. Could you send a card to Haeli? Would you be willing to post a little something on your blog asking for cards for her? I am sure she would be thrilled to receive a lot cards, etc. from all over the world.
(further info I inquired about and the answer received from Michelle's sister~~~
...I just talked with Haeli's mom again, she is so excited to hear all this.
She told me that Haeli is an avid horseback rider.
Her favorite color is blue.
She loves music! She plays the viola, the french horn, trumpet and piano.
Plus she is in choir and likes to sing.
So that is a lot more info on Haeli for ya!)
