Cards For Jayden

I have a friend whose daughter was going in for surgery today to remove a tumor. This is the second one and is larger than the first, making her surgery more complicated this time around. In an effort to help this brave and caring 14 year old a group was started on facebook called Cards For Jayden.  The goal is to have as many people as possible send her cards full of well wishes, feel betters and inspiration towards a full and speedy recovery.

I say caring because after Jayden's first visit 2 years ago to the Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton Alberta, she decided to start a fundraiser to provide gifts for the children staying in the hospital through a huge toy drive for them all! She has gone on to start her own foundation with the proceeds going to the Stollery towards purchasing gifts for the sick children who have to spend countless days and months away from their homes.

If you too would like to show this young girl some love and support please let me know in the comments below and I will be sure to forward you the address where you can send her a card!

Now, on to the good stuff.  I made two cards to send to Jayden. One from me and one from someone else ;)  I am entering the second one in a few challenges. One of them being Kraftin' Kimmie of course!!

Card #1 - Have a Jolly Good Day!

I just received the lovely Elaine from Kraftin' Kimmie last week and this is the very first time I have used her with her matching sentiment.  Adorable! 

I am entering this card in the Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday Challenge.  As always..... It's ANYTHING GOES!! (At least i will be if I can get this darn post to publish properly)

I don't know how well you can see it, but I used a piece of pearlized white card stock for the base. It just adds that little something extra to the damask cutout from the Cricut Damask Decor cartridge.

The inside ;)

And a coordinating envelope. Way better than boring white wouldn't ya say!

And Card #2 - I Am Woman Hear Me Roar featuring Tabitha from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

The inside!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
