Cute Card Thursday - A happy card

The challenge at Cute card Thursday this week is to create a card to make someone happy.
Hello, I read that you do card challenges and I wondered if you would consider doing a challenge with a twist.

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.

Thank you,

There is also some lovely stamps from The Crafty Pad as a prize so check out the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. I made this card for a boy. I will be going to check out the post pals website so I can send it to one of the children.

A little surprise
