DCM - Make a Child Smile.

This week's ~{DCM}~ is to Make a Child Smile, by making a card for a child from a website called ~{PostPals}~. This is a site that encourages people to send mail to children with long-term or terminal illnesses to cheer them up.

I fancied making a monster card so had a trawl through and I chose Ethan who has cystic fibrosis. When I looked for his age, I noticed it's his 8th birthday today!! So Happy Birthday Ethan!!

I've used BG Lime Rickey and bazzill card and drew and cut the monster by hand (did I tell you I failed art O level? Ha ha). I'm still at Lynne's and haven't got any alphabet stamps or letters so had to do the Boo by hand.

I've used a sketch by ~{I{heart}to stamp}~, even though I haven't stamped anything on it as my monster stamps are at home too.

Lucy was very interested in why I was sending a card to someone I didn't know and has decided she wants to do the same. If she makes a card, I shall blog it after the weekend as we have a wedding to go to tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by.

Fab card, Kaz - love your monster and bright colours! Hope Lucy has fun making a card (excuse to use Aunty Kaz's stash?) too!

A scary looking monster Kaz….but then I suppose monsters are supposed to be scary so I think you get away with that one!

Your card is such fun and I love the bright colours and doodling.

Thanks for joining in with us this week; I’m sure that Ethan will love his card when it arrives.
