For Madelyn

I'm posting this card again because I am giving it to my friend's daughter Madelyn.  Madelyn is 2 1/2 years old and was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma.  Today is her first day of chemotherapy so I thought I would send her along this Magic Fairy to take away all the ouchies for her.  Please keep Madelyn in your prayers.  If you would like to make a girly frilly card for her, you can send it to me and I will be sure that receives all of them.  I know they will be greatly appreciated.  Her mother is a fellow card maker and scrapbooker and friend of mine.

Hello everyone!  I made this card just in time.  A friend of mine has a daughter who is the same age as my Katie, her name is Madelyn.  Madelyn was just diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma.  Her chances of survival are 15%.  I can not begin to tell you how this has affected my life.  I feel so helpless, I just want to make all of it go away. card is for Cute Card Thursday.  This theme this week is Time.  The image is from Lily of the Valley and my designer paper is from CTMH.  I used a new Martha Stewart punch for the border.  I have to say I just LOVE her punches!
Sorry my post is short today.

pepparkaka boy

Today at Sunday Sketch and Stamp we have an awesome sketch to follow, here is the sketch from Erin

And here is my interuptation.  Pepparkaka is the Finnish word for Gingerbread.  I can remember my grandmother making the most delicious gingerbread at Christmas time.  She had a special cookie cutter that she always used, a small tin heart.  She was from Finland and was an amazing cook and baker.  I have her recipe that she used from her old cookbook and I'm going to make her delicious cookies this year at Christmas.  This stamp reminds me so much of her and her cookies.  She passed away 6 years ago and I still miss her dearly.  So this one is for you grandma!
Designer paper is from Cosmo Cricket.  The ribbon is from my stash. Most of the embellishments is from JoAnn's except the cream colored roses, they are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I colored my image with copics, I'll add which ones I used later on.

Itsy Bitsy Spider

Katie's favorite nursery rhyme is Itsy Bitsy Spider, or as she would sing it... its, its spider.  This week at Cute Card Thursday we are asking for a card that has some material on it.  I took some gauze and used my black soot distress ink and stained the gauze.
Tilda with Spider is stamped on Neenah Super Smooth paper and stamp with Memento Black Ink.   You can find the Magnolia sentiment here.  I used copic sketch markers to color Tilda with. The amazingly awesome designer paper is from Graphic 45.  Its from the new Halloween in Wonderland pad.  I wasn't much of a fan of the new Alice in Wonderland but I just love this paper, it really gives your cards that halloween punch!

I cut the scroll on the bottom and the spider web with the October 31st cartridge from Cricut.  Flowers are prima and the big black flower and leaves are from Recollections.

And the its its spider went up the spout again....

Glad you stopped by,
