A Card For Sophie

Afternoon from a very shivery Glasgow. I am absolutely freezing. Thinking about putting my pjs on and getting under the duvet! 

I have been busy all morning and I'm relaxing before the boys come in from school so I thought come and post a card on my blog! When I was visiting blogs on Saturday I came across my friend Kerry's post on her blog over at Ladybug Crafts - the title of the post was A card for Sophie and I read on....

Sophie is the daughter of one of Kerry's friends. She's just 18 and has recently been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Kerry wanted to make a card to encourage Sophie through the months ahead and encouraged others to do the same. You will notice that I've put a wee link in my sidebar too. 

I made this card a few weeks ago with a free digi that Krista did over at Saturated Canary but I wasn't very sure what do with her or who to give her too. When I read Kerry's post I emailed her straight away and offered her this card which I delivered to Kerry yesterday when I met her for coffee. 

Please please would you consider making a card to send to Sophie? You can find details of Kerry's email over on her blog 

I would like to enter the card in the following challenges:

Wow Susan that is weird I used the same image today. Yours is beautiful, love all the pink. I will definitely check out where to send a card, my friend's daughter had the same thing at 20, she is now 6 years older and doing well, so positive thoughts!

Hi Susan, gorgeous card - love that image - but a sad reason for having made it.

I've just left a comment for Kerry (and emailed) to let her know I'd make a card as well.
