We've had a some good rains in our area, thankfully no flooding in our vicinity...at least outside! I had a boo-boo with the washing machine on Saturday. Flooded our laundry room, but the worst was it leaked through the flooring down to the basement. We have a dropped ceiling in the basement rooms, so the area under the washer got the insulation all wet, plus damaged the ceiling tiles, got on the laminate basement floor. PLUS I had stacks of papers setting around on the floor, and they got wet too. Oh woe was me. We're trying to dry out things but I have a call in to someone I hope can fix things if we can't dry out sufficiently to avoid mildew problems. Definitely Operator Error!!! A big mess.
I read on Bonnie's blog about a young lady who is dealing with some real serious health issues. I'll copy & paste what Bonnie wrote, as she said it so well:
"Yesterday one of my commentors, Melissa, left me a message about cards for Maddy. I went to the link above and my heart was wrenched and warmed at the same time. Briefly, Maddy is struggling with her second onset of Acute Myeloid Leukemia and is again undergoing treatments.
The Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring a card drive for this remarkable young lady. Do follow the links and read about her yourself and think about sending her a card.
St. Jude Children's Hospital
Maddy Justice - Patient
262 Danny Thomas Place
Attntion Mail Stop 108
Memphis, TN 38105
Oh, and both Simon Says and Melissa are offering prizes if you link your card to their blogs. Not as good a reason to send a card as Maddy herself, but it is added incentive."
Thanks Bonnie, for allow me to borrow your words.
Here's my card which was inspired by this color challenge photo at Fun Friday Challenge #3
- yellow scored background - a snippet
- black embossed circle - snippet
- Memory Box diecut daisies, colored with copics - snippet
- butterflies & ribbon - snippets too!
- Elizabeth craft die sentiment - one last snippet
I hope that Maddy will like the card & feel cheered that someone is thinking of her and I hope you will like it as well. If you can, perhaps you can join Blogland in sending a card to this very courageous young teenager.
This card is being submitted to the following:
Gosh that is a record submission for me. I sure hope I got all the linking done up properly. If I have, it is a big thank you to Miss Pixie at the Playground for her patient tutoring in the art of linking. And if I didn't get it right, I have to accept the credit for that!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful afternoon. Hugs.
