Sending smiles and hugs with a card drive!


  Happy Sunday! Today I wanted to share not only my card for this weeks Stampotique Designers challenge, but also a story about teenager, that has her fair share of pain and "crappy" days, which is why I am dedicating this card to Shelbie Murphy.  Before I tell you how amazing she is, let me tell you a bit about this weeks challenge, which is hosted by Nellie
and here is what Nellie has to say about this weeks challenge. 

"No explanation needed for this week's challenge. I'm asking you to use your favourite colours. Use as many colours as you want to. I think we all have favourite colour combinations, colours that always match, colours that work for us, colours we turn to when we lack a bit of inspiration. Mine are variations of green and blue. What are yours?"
 
  This challenge was super easy for me, as I LOVE color, but I wanted to limit it to my favorite color combination, which is green and pink.  I used  Hazel Heart, and the new release Vine scroll for the background.  The vine scroll is perfect for so many different theme cards.  It could easily go toward a much "darker" theme card as well. Loved this challenge!!!  We would love for you to join us and enter this weeks challenge for a chance to win some free product!
    Now let me tell you about this amazing girl named Shelbie.  She is a 17 year old amazing girl, who has been fighting cancer for the past seven years.  In 2010 she was diagnosed with with stage 4 Ewing Sarcoma, childhood bone cancer. Since then, she has been fighting a horrible battle that no child should have to experience.  Not only has cancer caused her horrible pain, multiple surgries, tranfusions, and misery, but it has has robbed her of experiencing a "typical"  childhood and teenage expierences, and while most of us take day to day life for granted, Shelbie has embraced everyday as it is her last.  Instead of worry about herself, she is always worryig about others and putting their feelings first.  She truly is an amazing girl, who makes the world smile. So, since Shelbie colors the world with her smile, I am dedicating this card to her!  Always thinking and praying for you Shelbie!

     As Shelbie is always coloring the world with her smile, I would like to try to color her world with cards.  If you have a card to spare, I know Shelbie would love a quick note:
 Shelbie Murphy
535 Beacon St
 Lowell Ma 01850
