Cute Card Thursday - Happy Mail

Morning Folks!

Sorry for the lack of blogging recently but this cold or perhaps now Hay Fever is driving me mad....

Well I am honoured to be a Guest Designer for Cute Card Thursday for the next two weeks - Yaaaay! They are a super bunch of talented ladies to say the least. It's a happy happy theme this week - Make a card to cheer someone up or make their day - No hard task as we all can do with a bit of cheering up now and then.

CCT 7th  May 09

The sponsor this week is from my lovely friend Debbie at the Crafty Pad who is donating some of her luverly stamps and is also one of the Guest Designers this week. Belinda in Reflection and Swirls and Flowers Borders..


Have any of you heard of Post Pals well CCT received this E-mail from Vikki.

Here are the details:

I run Post Pals, we feature seriously ill children (most have cancer or are going through transplants) and their siblings on our website 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.

What an absolutely brilliant cause, how great to be able to make any of these children smile even for just a minute..
