Card for Maddy


Hi, I've made this card to send to Maddy. She's a young girl who has fought a brave battle. Simon Says Stamp is hosting a card drive for Maddy, and here is some of her story from their blog.

Hi Bloggers!!  You may remember back in July of 2012, we introduced you to this beautiful and brave young girl,Maddy Justice.  She sadly was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment, followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie. 

Three months later, we were thrilled to report to you in this blog that Maddy seemed to be on the road to recovery!  This January, we learned that she had relapsed, which unfortunately means she's going to have to go through this very physical and emotional pain again.

That being said, we were overwhelmed and so happy with the response to our card drive last year, and we can also assure you that your cards and LOVE really touched Maddy.  She found herself looking forward to the cards every day, and even made a game out of where in the world the cards came from with her family.  They used a world map to locate the card origins! We're hoping you can help lift her spirits again!!

I was inspired by the photo inspiration at Just Add Ink. I love the bright colours and the silhouette so I'll be entering the card there.


Materials used: Penny Black flower stamp; Annabelles sentiment stamp; distress ink; Versafine ink and clear embossing powder; bling from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
