Hello everyone, please join me in the November 30 Days of Gift Making Blog Hop, here is how it works, its 30 days of 30 different gift projects. Gift ideas, such as cards, layouts, goody bags, treats, and so much more.  Look for post daily that will tell you where to go each day.  We have some of the most talented ladies contributing.  Each day you will visit one blog, (not like others where you visited all in one day) This was done so you can focus on one project and get some wonderful ideas for gift making or giving, some of the ladies also may be offering sales, and some may be even having "Blog Candy" I will be, just not sure of what the candy is gonna be, but there will be some candy, cause I love candy, hehe . So keep watching for the next 30 days for a wonderful Hop!

Card for Madison

After working for my parents business for 10 years, you get to know your customers pretty well and over time they become more like friends. One of the customers had told me last year that he was thrilled that his niece, Madison, was in remission from Leukemia! Their family was over joyed that such a young girl had beat this vicious cancer (she's only 6 years old). However, just last week, their family was just hit with the most horrific news........Madison's cancer has returned. 

Now I personally do not know Madison BUT i'm the type of person who wants to help whenever I can. I know that I cant cure her but I can help with making her day a little better by sending her a card to put a smile on her face. So, this is where i'm hoping to get your help.....i'm hoping to get a TON of cards to cheer up Madison. "Get well" cards and anything that is super girly would be perfect!!! And if you'd like to send a small gift, ex: a barbie or stuffed animal, im sure it would cheer her up and keep her company while she spends the next several weeks in the hospital. I know she loves pink, butterflies, and anything girly. 

If your interested in helping please send your cards/packages to the following address by Friday, October 29th (please have it in the mail on or before that date):

Trisha Theo 
Po Box 7806
North Port, Florida 34290

Thank you everyone in advance for spreading the word and helping this young girl get through such a hard time, 


Ps....if you'd like to send a card to Madison's parents with words of encouragement or your prayers, their names are Bobby & Maria.
