I have two buddies through the ChemoAngels program, a three year old girl and a six year old boy. They both live in Ottawa and are actually being treated at the same hospital, for the same cancer (ALL Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). These are the cards I made them this week. I cased the MFT Pure Innocence one from Pinterest, and as you can tell by the boy card - he's an Ottawa Senators fan.

Here is my 'angel mail' for this week, both my little buddies share the same favourite colour - blue! I try to personalize their cards as much as I can. I printed the images online, the sentiment stamps are from Hero Arts, and the paper is from Stampin Up (I am SO glad they brought back Pacific Point!). Thanks for stopping by.

This is my 'angel mail' for my little buddy this week - I wasn't sure about it at first but I've come to like this card. It's simple, but cute I think - I hope she likes it too. I used clip art for the sheep. All paper is from Stampin Up (Coastal Cabana, Craft Cake, Whisper White). I followed the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge this week, I love all of Karen's challenges! Thanks for stopping by :)

I am in a wonderful program called ChemoAngels. Volunteers (like me) are matched up with cancer patients, and send weekly uplifting cards (card angels) and small gifts (chemo angels). I've been doing this for almost two years now, and it's one of the most rewarding things I have ever done! This is my card for my little buddy this week - she's only three and is in treatment for ALS (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia).

Ever make one of those cards that turns out exactly how you wanted it to? This was one of those cards for me. My customer wanted something simple, with a western theme, for his friends getting married. When I handed it to him this morning, his exact words were "You f*#king nailed it!" LOL. I'm not one to toot my own horn, but I think so too. Have a great day everyone!

www.chemoangels.net. She's three and she's battling leukemia, as much as I love making her cards, I sure hate the reason - but I think they must bring a smile to her face. I made the lion using the SU Blossom Punch, the 1 3/8" circle and the 3/4" circle. I used the tiny heart from the Owl Punch for the nose. Thanks for looking!

As soon as I saw this MFT Pure Innocence cutie I knew I had to have it - I'm a chemo angel to a little three year old, so it's perfect. My favourite thing about MFT (haha no pun intended) - the matching dies for their PI stamps - I LOVE them. They have amazing stuff, check out their website www.mftstamps.com
I bought this 'Sisterhood' stamp on my local swap n' buy wondering if I would ever use it, it was too good to pass up at $2. It came in handy last night, I really like how this card turned out. Paper is all SU (Basic Gray, Smokey Slate and Strawberry Slush). The image is coloured with Copics.

I made this card for 'the big cheese' here in the office - aka our President & CEO - something tells me it suits him perfectly...no pun intended ;) The MFT Suit & Tie dienamics are worth every penny - so fun! Paper is all SU (Midnight Muse, Real Red and Crumb Cake) and I also used the Canvas stamp from SU.

We are losing our AMAZING doggy daycare lady we've had for ten years, she's moving to B.C. I made her a scrapbook filled with photos and memories of all the dogs, including our two of course. This MFT die was perfect, she really does mean the world to us. Chase, Gemini & their humans will miss her and her little family so very much.

I'm a in the chemo angels program, and my littlest buddy who is only three LOVES monkeys, so I thought this card turned out perfect for her. I embossed some Early Espresso card stock and freehand cut the tree, and then I fussy cut the monkey which I had stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.The sentiment is from Verve and I think it suits the card perfectly :)

This is the card I made my dad for Father's Day, and his birthday which is the day after. I made a combo card this year so I guess he got gyped a little ;) I just love the Graphic Greetings stamps from Taylored Expressions. Paper is all SU (Pacific Point, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and Basic Black) and the background stamp is also SU.
P.S. Syd - if you're reading this,make sure you don't let papa see this until he receives it! ;)

I made this card for a friend of mine and when I gave it to her she had a puzzled kinda look on her face. Turns out, it matches baby's nursery EXACTLY, and I had not idea when I put the card together! What a coincidence. Paper is all SU, front sentiment is computer generated and inside sentiments are from Papertrey Ink.

A couple of months ago I thought I'd send a card for the whole family and not just my little buddy. It was a lot of work to stamp, fussy cut and paste each of them together but I was so happy with the result! I blocked out their name for privacy :) Thanks for looking!

I made this card for a bachelorette party - I just love this set from MFT. I had to make the paper for her dress manually as I don't have any white glimmer paper so I used versamark, heat & stick powder and then SU dazzling diamonds. I am really happy with the result! I followed this weeks SSSC#218 - I love Karen's sketches :)

I FINALLY got my hands on some MFT paper & ink - shipping to Canada is way too expensive but my friend was just in Florida and stopped by their store - yay for me! I am loving Grout Gray - really happy she got me two packs of this one. Stamps are from one of my all time favourite SU sets, Summer Solstice.

It's playoff season, and as all Canadians know, hockey = life in Canada.
I made the Habs card for my girlfriend and the Bruins one for my nephew. I much preferred making the Habs one! NHL logos are printed thanks to the internet, card stock is all SU.

I had to make a card for a friend who's boyfriend just got Firefighter of the Year! I love the Mojo Monday sketches so thought I'd play along this week - I wish I had time to play along every week.
Paper is all SU as well as the Fire Brigade stamp set, sentiment is from Verve's Dare to Be set.
