100% Princess

Hello everyone - thanks for stopping by my little corner of bloggy land!
I hope you weekend is going well for you.  Mine is going by too quickly.  I managed to get a bit of yard work accomplished - I think my sweet friend, Kim is right - my Cleaning Fairy must have run away with the Yard Work Fairy!  Haven't seen either of them in ages.....sigh....

After the yard work was completed ( much as I was gonna do)...I managed to squeeze in some crafting time.  A sweet blogging friend of mine is collecting cards for some very special people and I thought I would put together a card or two to send her.  Some of you may already know Sherry of Macybella Designs.  If not, I encourage you to drop by her Facebook page for a visit. A few years ago, Sherry lost her sweet daughter, Macy, in a fire that destroyed their home.  Last year Sherry started a card drive for the Arkansas Children's Hospital in memory of her Macy.  She is collecting cards and items to put into "care packages" for families in need.  Here's what Sherry has to say on her Facebook page:

It's time for the 2nd Annual Cards for Kids for Arkansas Children's Hospital in memory of my daughter, Macy. You can help by either making handmade cards (will take storebought as well) and sending them to me, donating goods (their wishlist is attached), or donating financially and we will shop and/or make a financial donation as one. Last year we donated over 100 cards, plus 20 necessity packs for the burn unit, and clothes and toys for the hospital.

Important note about cards:
The CAN include stickers, stickles, glitter, etc.
They can have a generic sentiment stamped inside or be left blank.
Cards do need to include an envelope.
They CANNOT include messages of faith or the phrase 'Get Well Soon'.
Cards can be created for the kids in the hospital (and adults!) or for the kids to give to a family member or friend. 

If you would like to send a card (or several) or make a donation, you can contact me by email (use the "Contact Corner tab at the top of my blog) and I will get an address to you.  Or, you can contact Sherry at her Facebook Page by clicking here.  I know that Sherry would appreciate your help so much!  Here's a sweet little card I made to send to Sherry....
* "Princess Anya" from The Greeting Farm Stamps
* I colored her with my Copic markers and added some silver glitter to her crown and wand for a bit of sparkle because what princess doesn't love glitter?
* The little flag  is a die from "Lil' Inker Designs"
* The fun sentiment is from "Jaded Blossoms" 100% Princess Stamp Set

I hope this sweet card puts a smile on a special little girl's face!
Sherry will need all cards and donations by April 15th - so let me know if you would like her mailing address and I'll get it to you right away!

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Until next time,
