Maddy's Card

Maddy's Card by judkajudy
Maddy is a young lady battling leukemia. She has relapsed after her first bone marrow transplant and is now undergoing a second transplant. I have read some of her journal entries on her Caring Bridge site and have been inspired by her lack of self pity and her fighting spirit. She has an amazing family, too!

Simon says is sponsoring a card drive for Maddy (Maddy and her Mom have asked for cards, as they make her smile). My goal was to make a cheerful card with an encouraging message! I used a stamp set from Tiddly Inks and did some paper piecing.  There's glossy accents on the balloons and hearts all over the place!!  Hope this brightens Maddy's day as she recovers at St. Jude's in Memphis.

It's the middle of the week already!! Now I am really behind!!! Time to get that to-do list out and check a few boxes!

Thanks for the visit. Hope your week is going well. LIfe is good!
