A Card For Jeanne

2 posts from me in 1's a miracle!

Thought I would share the card I made for Jeanne to  help cheer her up and will be mailing to Stacie tomorrow along with an Elizabeth Bell stamp "Willow with Lantern" for her to add with the candy, "A card for Jeanne".   You all know I'm not much good with cutesy cards but I just fell in love with this freebie I got from the CDAC Heart Hop last week. The image is from Priscilla Styles at CDAC.  I just loved the little dog holding the balloons. If you can't tell I'm a dog lover?

I wanted my card to not only be cute but to have meaning for someone experiencing a very difficult time in her life recouperating from a mastectomy and what lies ahead. So, I came up with the following sentiment on the inside.  I love color and I think it brings so much enjoyment to our lives is the reason all these colors on the card are included in the sentiment.  I know I saw something like this somewhere but I have no idea where or when. If you can't read it, please click on the picture to make it larger.
Jeanne doesn't blog or use a computer so there is no risk of her knowing about this.  If you'd like to contribute a card or something for Stacie's candy drawing for submitting a card, please scroll down to my earlier post below, "Will You Help" for the deets.

Thanks so much for stopping by! You know how much I love your comments so if you have the time to leave me one it will be much appreciated.  More importantly, if you can, send a card to sweet Stacie for her aunt and to be entered into the candy draw.
"Hugs" Carol

I adore your cute little card with the sweetest puppy ever from Priscilla. The embellishments of the hearts go so well with the pretty collection of balloon hearts. Your poem inside is perfect and it's sure going to brighten Stacie's day to give this to her Aunt.

Careful hun, 2 cards in one day, I'm not working fast enough.

The elephant carrying the basket of hearts is perfect at this time of year, with 'Love' in the air. Your flower arrangement is so pretty and I like the little touches of bling throughout your design. Too Cute!!!
