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...

  5. So this is the 'wee' card for Sophie!!! It's fabulicious Lyndi, thank you so much. I only gave it to Karen with another couple the other week as Sophie has been in and out of hospital quite a bit of late with infections and high temperatures. I was supposed to meet Karen this week but Sophie was taken back in. It's so worrying and I can't imagine what Karen and her family are going through as things change so quickly. I'm glad I got to see the card you made her as I don't see all of them once I hand them over. I love the colour...the sentiment is spot on! xx

  6. Fantastic card! love the colours and the image is cool and fits very well with the sentiment. Love it! :) xx
