A Card For Lauryn

Last week I followed a blog hop for this precious little angel named Lauryn who is 2 and 1/2 years old she is undergoing chemo treatments for Leukemia you can read her story below and also there is an address if you would like to make her a card and mail to the hospital.......Today I made my card and will put it in the mail tomorrow.

Isn't she just precious? Let me introduce you....Lauryn is two and a half years old and undergoing chemo treatment for Leukemia.  Her family members are parents, Josh and Elizabeth; siblings, Lily (age 7), Logan (age 5); and grandmother (fellow stamper, Linda Payne).  Lauryn loves princesses and Superman, and her Facebook page too!

Did you know the first dose of chemo takes 35-40 days? So she will be in the hospital for over a month the first time.  She will continue treatment for at least three years with in/out admissions.  The leukemia has affected 35% of her body and her left leg has some muscle atrophy.  They are working to correct that too. 

Many in our stamping community asked how we could help.  Jennie Harper and Patti Painter started to plan and then Jennifer Scull and Colleen Holmes joined them in putting the details and hop for Lauryn together.  A big hug and thank yous to these ladies for their selfless giving of time and heart too.   
The address for sending cards to Lauryn and her family is:

Lauryn Newsome 
Children's National Hematology/Oncology RM 437 
111 Michigan Ave NW
Washington DC 2001

Here is the card I made

My image was designed by an old stamping friend of mine Ms. Nancy Judd isn't she a cutie ( I think here stamps where called Rare Rubberstamps)....the Hugs & Kisses from Hobby Lobby's The Paper Studio collection.....papers are  Making Memories that I have had for some time the date on them was 2006....added the polka dots on here little dress with my Spectrum Noir markers.

Well we are having another chilly day today and I either have allergies from the pollen or another cold crazy

Masculine Mini Album

good afternoon peeps have another Mini for you today.......I have made both granddaughters one and could not leave out my only grandson so went hunting for something that would be appropriate for a 12 year old boy....very heavy with photo's so please bear with me.

First of all I found this mini at Pinterest  at this sweet lady over at A creative Operation did a you tube tutorial on it she called her album Happy Days album mine is more I'd Rather Be Hunting as you will see.
I had such a fun time with the cover of this album my stamp is Large Owl from IBFS love that guy...he was stamped on a piece of glassy card stock that had been inked with Rangers Alcohol inks added baling twine, paper leaves, real tree twigs metal charm that I stamped create on and frame is from Spellbinder die cuts.

 This is the spine as you can see pretty wide, stamped Lucien out on piece of scrape adhered it to a leather frame and glued to spine.

This is the opening that I tied with the baling twine now I will show you the inside...each page has an envelope covered with designer paper on one side and than pockets on the other, the envelopes each have a tag in them to use for pictures so you could easily put about 40.....4x6.....snapshots in this book if not more.

when opened you have actually 2 albums one on each side of the cover.

on the left-side page I used a counter top sample from hardware store thought it would make a cool frame.

on this page I made a little fishing pole.

I hope I haven't bored you with all my pictures paper is from The Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby and is called I'd Rather Be Hunting assortment of stamps IBFS, Stampin-Up and Inkadinado.

For Somebunny Special

Well happy rainy Mon. from down here in Va. have a sweet little Easter card to share today using stamps from IBFS....not sure about this card I like it but I don't think it is because I think it is a little the paper, will let you my readers decide.

my card was made using my envelope punch board and my main image is a cute little stamp called Bunny Tail End I colored that cutie with Spectrum Noir markers and added liquid applique to the tale.....I also made my bow using the punch board love that thing. I think my paper is from a company called Lydia it was a reduced item I bought at either Hobby Lobby or Michael's

Now the sentiment on the inside is also from IBFS....For Somebunny Special...used the negative side of my cardstock that I had punch with Spellbinders scalloped nestibilitie and than cut a smaller one and added to the middle. Stamped sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black which can also be purchased at IBFS.

That's it for me today but before I go Della has some new sheets of stamps and also has clearance and overstock stamps on sale and as always if you use my code you can save 10% on your entire order sale items or regular priced...the code is SAVE10BETH just insertit in your order before paying.
