A few days ago, Vgrrrl posted a request on FB for people to send birthday cards to a very special little boy named Cole. Cole has A.L.L., the same aggressive cancer that took little Lincoln Hammett from my church family. Cole's family discontinued treatment in October, and doctors expected he would be in heaven by Christmas. Yet he is looking forward to his 5th birthday on January 9th. I love it when the doctors are wrong.
So I sent Cole this card, my first card made in my new, completely unorganized craft room. I was so happy to find anything at all as I worked! Minimalism has its advantages at times like this.
Kid cards always intimidate me. I originally planned to put the stamped panel on a brilliant blue card base but just couldn't bring myself to do it. Baker's twine, to me, is just so gosh-darn happy.
I hope Cole's birthday is the best ever. It's already given his parents a wonderful gift of time.
If you want to send a quick card, too, here's the address.
PO Box 9
Joy, IL 61260
