Cute Card Thursday Challenge 59 "Happy Mail"

This week over on Cute Card Thursday we have a theme of "Happy Mail", we want you to create a card to cheer someone up, or make their day.

Cute Card Thursday received this email from Vikki, after reading this you might like to send your Happy Mail to one of the children at Post pals!

Hello, I read that you do card challenges and I wondered if you would consider doing a challenge with a twist. I run Post Pals, we feature seriously ill children (most have cancer or are going through transplants) and their siblings on our website http://www.postpals.co.uk/ and invite members of the public to log on from around the world and send a card to a child. The aim is to make the child smile, but we have found it also helps their self esteem and parents often open them with a child during a procedure to distract them.

At the moment we are helping 120 children but they aren't getting much post.

I was wondering if you would do a challenge, instead of people just scanning in their card for the theme but they actually make one for a Post Pal child and send it off. I can't begin to tell you how much receiving a card means when your ill and isolated.

Thank you,Vikki

ps)You can see a video about what we do here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l42sKtdPXrw


For my card I have used this weeks sketch over on Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog . The main image is a Miss Anya stamp and I have coloured with Copics. The papers are all WRMK "Tiffanys", swirls are a QK Revolution die and the flowers are a mix of Prima and Craft Fairy attached with a spacer and a WRMK matching brad..

Here is the inside...


And the back....

Sorry for the rushed post, Georgia's school are going on a walk to the woods and one of the parents forgot and they are short an adult......so I am cancelling worl today and off to the woods for a walk....

Be back after lunch to tidy this post up...LMAO.
