A Card for Sophie

Hi there

I added a link to my blog a wee while back (top left hand side), about making a card for Sophie. She's is receiving treatment for Hodgkin's Disease at the moment and I have heard recently that she is doing well. She still has about 4 months of treatment left, so if you would like to make a card for Sophie please click on the link for further information :o)

Here is the card that I made, which is winging its way to Sophie as we speak:

I used violet colours throughout the card, as these are the colours for Hodgkin's Awareness. I love that sentiment, and I know how much of a fight Sophie will have to be putting up to come through all of this, so thought it very appropriate for the card. The background of the card is a fabric, I have no idea where I got it from, but am now wishing I had bought more LOL.

This is a wee close up of the image from Kenny K, which I thought fitted the sentiment exactly. I hope Sophie likes her card :o)

So free up a wee bit of time from your busy day,  pop on over to Kerry's blog to find out how to send Sophie a wee bit of crafters love :o) - you know you want to...

Sentiment: PC generated

Crafting Cafe Blog Hop!

I'm back again. Hopefully will be around a bit longer this time :o).

Welcome to the first ever Crafting Cafe Blog Hop - The Crafting Cafe is a friendly group of crafters over on facebook who share their crafting journey together.... come on over and join us here if you want to.

If you have started from the beginning of the hop you will have come to me via Andree's Blog. If you found this hop by accident - welcome! To go to the beginning of the hop, pop on over to Nikki's blog, then you can start at the beginning and get to see the beautiful creations from everyone!

The theme for our blog hop is friendship, this is the card that I have made.

The girly stamp is by La Blanche. I've coloured it to look like one of my friends and me going for a wee chatty, girly walk. I used a Card Template I found while googling and decorate it with some pp and card stock, flowers and bling.
