For those who have followed my blog for a while know these two things about me, for sure: I am deeply touched by the children with health challenges, and I ♥ Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker (NSS) paper.
Well, these two things collided in the Paper Jungle this weekend....
The blog coordinator for NSS's Doghouse is a sweetheart named Julie Tucker-Wolek. Julie
enables encourages my addiction to NSS ... I follow her posts on her blog and am inspired by her work. I also stalk enjoy her posts on Facebook. You should go to Julie's blog just to find such adorable stuff like the magical Christmas decoration at left. :):):):):)
So while I was following along, I saw the touching pictures of Julie's daughter, Brookie. Brookie recently had another round of laser surgeries to remove port wine stains. Despite the blisters and pain, dear Brookie continues to smile.
I asked Julie if I could make and send a card to Brookie, and she said yes! :):):):) Here's the card I made, using NSS papers for the main part, and a Hambo Stamp digi-image to go with.
If you too would like to make/send a card to Brookie, please send them to me and I will forward them to the Wolek Family. (E-mail me at Cardmonkey@comcast.net for my USPS address.)
I also plan on submitting the photo of this card (and link here) in the Card Patterns Sketch Challenge #143. Here is the sketch I followed to make this card... I'm not a sketch challenge monkey (this is my first!) but it was fun to stretch my thinking (and the height of my card!) to participate in this!
FEEL BETTER SOON, Brookie! Keep smiling!!!
