Christmas RAK's




Clear Dollar Stamps is hosting a new Weekend Challenge called Clearly Inspired.  I created this card for the first challenge.  We were to use 5 of anything.. I used 5 squares.  Check it out.  There is a huge celebration going on for Clear Dollar Stamps 5th birthday.  This is a newly released set created by the fabulously talented Wendy Hall.  So grab your CDS stamps and come join the challenge to Give Me Five.
This first card is going as a RAK to a family back in my home town that have a daughter named Sydney.  She  is in her final days and they  are celebrating Christmas.   Here is their story:  Sydney Ives



This second card is for several challenges: 

High Hopes challenge this week is to create a card with a card with a snowflake.  My designer paper has snowflakes..

These both qualify for the Stampin B's challenge this week.. Hosted by Faith to make a Christmas card. Check out their fun challenge Blog.  The white paper I used on the HH card is from Mark's Finest Papers.  It is so awesome for copics.

This also qualifies for The Cute Daisey May challenge to create a BLUE Christmas card.

Then there is the LSC on Splitcoast.   Silvia challenged us to create a card for a sweet little boy named Noah that is battling cancer.  He is in his final days and his family is celebrating Christmas this week.    If you too would like to send a card you can read about Noah here:  Noah Biorkman

 


Have a terrific weekend and give your kids a hug...
