Sweet Ali!!

Hello there all my stamping friends!! I'm so sorry for my long absence. Believe it or not, I lost my internet connection last Thursday and haven't been able to get on since. Just a bit ago a wonderful computer guru just got me up and running!! Woo-Hoo!! I sure don't want to go through that again!! However, I did get a ton of organizing accomplished in my stamp room!! That's about the only bright side! *grin*.

Well, with all that said, I'm slow at getting my CCEE card up again this week. Charlene (LilLuvsStampin) is in charge of the challenges this week, and they're awesome!! For our first week we were to follow SCS's Sketch #75. If you click HERE, you will be connected to our CCEE blog and the sketch is there for you to see. We'd love to have you play along too.

I made this card for a darling little angel named Ali, Laurie's (Lauraly) daughter. She has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, and is in Seattle right now having some tests done to determine the best possible action to take. If you'd like to know about her progress, there is a thread HERE on SCS where friends have been keeping everyone informed, and now that I have access to the internet, I will be updating the thread as I learn new info. If you'd like to send a card to her while she's in the hospital (it could be two weeks or more), email me and I'll get the address to you. Her favorite colors are bright pink and Gable Green. She loves puppies and horses too.

Supplies: Stamps - Summer Ice Cream (Sugar Nellie), Sentiment (Hey There Cupcake - Stampendous) Paper - Kaisercraft, Bazzill, Neenah Natural White Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento) Accessories - Copics, Nestabilities, Rhinestone Flower (KaiserScrapbook), Rotary scallop, Certainly Celery Ribbon (SU), Dimensional tape, Glitter
