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:

Make it Monday

Incy Wincy - Mother's Day or Girly
Cutie Pie - Monochromatic

Image - Boobielicious, Saturated Canary, coloured with Copics, Not sure where sentiment is from

Share It On A Sunday

How can it be back at Sunday already?! It doesn't seem like a whole week since Karen posted on the Sugar Nellie blog those lovely MotB outfits! Anyway, here we are back again. This time Karen has shared some delicious looking cupcakes so I thought I'd follow here lead this time....

I present - CAKES!! (not made by me I hasten to add, I am not clever enough to make any of these!!)

Now, I could never eat any of them, because they resemble a person or animal... No, I really can't eat Jelly Babies or Gingerbread Men. Struggle a bit with broccoli too cos that looks like a tree ;) (ok, I'm lying about the last one)

Thanks for dropping by today. Have a great Sunday whatever you're up to. Remember to pop over to the Sugar Nellie blog to see what everyone else is sharing today.
