Cards for Paige

Erin from Scrap, Stamp, and Be Merry needs your help.  Erin lives next door to a 13 year old girl named Paige who lost her arm in tragic boating accident.  Paige and her mother were kayaking when they were rammed by a 28 ft speed boat.  You can read more about the incident here or you can read more details on Erin's blog.   Erin, sweet and generous soul that she is, has been on a mission to get as many people as possible to mail cards to Paige.  She's even offering blog candy to those who send Paige a card. Simon Says Stamp heard about Paige's story too and they're hosting a special 24 hr challenge to help Erin get as many cards as possible for Paige.  SS wants you to make a girly card for Paige.   Here are the cards that I made for Paige...

This is the girly card I made for page.  There's lots of embossing on this one (not that it shows up in the photo).  I wanted to make the card special, but I knew that it would be difficult to mail with lots of bulky embellishments. 

After I finished the first card, I really wanted to make Paige another card. (Erin said that Paige looks forward to the mail everyday!!!)  I thought that this image was really sweet, but I was worried that it was too young for a 13 year old girl.  13 seems young to me, but it probably seems old to 13 year old girls.  After some hemming and hawwing about whether or not this would be an appropriate card for Paige, I decided that heartfelt prayers are always appropriate, so this card will go postal with the other one on Monday. 

Now, I always appreciate a visit to my blog, but don't linger long.  You've got a card (or two) to make for Paige!!  Get crafting!!

These are so pretty! The pink and yellow go so nicely together and I like the pattern on the main card. Great coloring, again! And such cute images, too! I am sure Paige will love these.
