Get Well Card for Boy Using Cricut Art Philosopy and Cricut Artiste Cartridges

Hi friends and creators!! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the summer weather.  I decided I needed to create a Boy Get Well Card to send with the Girl Get Well Card for the children at Shriner's Children's Hospital.  In case you didn't see my little girl card; I have added the same information for anyone who might be interested in helping out by making a card for these kids.
 
A little 10 yr. old boy is collecting handmade cards to deliver to the Shriner's Children's Hospital in September. He is asking anyone who is willing to create cards to send them to him by Sept. 8, 2012. For more information, visit http://www.heartmadelife.com/selflessness/ where you will find a note from his mom, a note from him with pictures and his request. It is a very touching story about a little boy who has overcome his own birth defects and wants to help other children.

I was so impressed that I decided to contribute to his cause. Check it out if you have time. There are instructions on what to create, no embellishments, glitter, etc due to these going to small children. That is why I have no embellishments on my card and no foam tape where the item could be pulled off. I already created this card before I read that they would like more encouragement cards; but hopefully this will work. I think it turned out very cute.
 
The free little boy is a digital stamp from Bodilsscrapeverden blogspot. Isn't he adorable?  The turtle is a free digi stamp from Birdscards.com. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday 255 for inspiration; but didn't make it exactly the way it was sketched.  I also didn't get it posted in time to enter into Mojo Monday; but I was inspired by their sketch; so I felt I should mention it here.

  10. Hi Gloria! These cards are super cute, and I'm sure will be a blessing to the kids who receive them. This is just the type of thing I love to see....where crafters use their God-given talents to bless others. I really hope this brings you a peace and a special blessing for being SO gracious to others, Gloria. Also, you really managed to combine a lot of challenges beautifully. I never seem to be able to do that very well, so I top my hat to you. I'm VERY grateful for your participation at Word Art Wednesday. It's always SUCH a tremendous blessing to visit your blog and see the lovely creations you make to share with us in our challenges. Hope you're enjoying a great week in the Lord, and we hope to see you back again soon.
    God's blessings to you,

    1. Hi Karen, So nice to hear from you again. I love reading your wonderful compliments and words of encouragement. I finally got the two cards in the mail yesterday. I love helping people. I guess that is why my career was in nursing. Now - I am trying to do it in other ways since I can't work outside my home. You are a blessing and I am grateful for you. Thanks for the lovely blog. I wasn't sure if my cards were right for it; but it said to create something that brings you joy; so I did. Have a blessed week. Hugs, Gloria
