Hello, CardMonkey fans.
Those who have been following here for a while know that I am a big fan (biggggg fan!!) of a young blogger named Madison. Madison is a high school student -- hard to believe, as she's wise beyond her years -- and she has a heart that is deeper than it is old.
Madison's blog is at www.funkycards.blogspot.com. Earlier this year, Madison launched a cardmaking project called "I Feel The Love" (IFTL), where she has her followers make cards for individual children whose lives have been complicated by illness. Be sure you hop over there to learn more about Madison's IFTL project, as well as a little about this fun, upbeat young woman.
The latest IFTL child is Ethan, who is turning 2 in November. Earlier this year, Ethan had a liver transplant and is doing super!! Here is the card I made for Ethan:
Sadly, not all of the IFTL children pull through. One little girl, Marley Moore -- just 3 years young -- died earlier this week at home in the loving arms of her parents Brett and Nikki. Marley battled a brain tumor that was just too aggressive. She fought valiantly, and touched the lives of many of us who followed her story through "The Caring Bridge" posts her family made during her treatment. Marley's funeral services are this weekend; while they are too distant to attend, I made this card in Marley's memory:
Great, great, great cards and for such an OUTSTANDING purpose. My heart and prayers go out to all those who's children are affected by even the smallest of illnesses. My baby is the center of my world and I couldn't imagine the pain of her having to go through what those brave lil youngsters do. May God love and strengthen the children and their families. Amen.
Be Blessed, Beckie

Beautiful card Ellen.
Wow, you know just what to say. Ellen, this is a beautiful tribute to Marley. Thank you so much. I haven't posted her passing yet on my blog. It has been so overwhelming for me. You said it so nicely. She was so special to me. I know she is playing in heaven now and that makes me smile. Your cards are wonderful just like you! You really are the best.
