Make a Wish Come TrueToday we have been made aware of a little boy in Iowa who is fighting leukemia. We would like to participate in helping his wish coming true by encouraging all of you to use your creativity to make this happen. Here is what was posted on our Facebook page:
"Max Low is a 12 year old from Neola, Iowa. He has been battling cancer for half of his life. His doctors recently told his parents to enjoy the time they have left with him. His wish is to get 1 million cards. He has currently gotten about 23,000. If you would like to help Max get his wish, please send a get well card to the following address: Mighty Max Low, C/O Greg and Bambi Low, PO Box 111, Neola, IA 51559"
There was an article that was written about him in the Omaha World Herald in 2009 you can see it here
I have been very fortunate to be blessed with my children. I thank God everyday that besides a few broken bones, my kids are generally healthy. I could not even imagine the pain this family is going through and my heart and prayers go out to them. I really wanted to make a card to help Mighty Max reach his Max-a-Million goal! I am going to enter it into several challenges also to try to get the word out to as many people as possible! Let's help this kid's wish come true!!
I love this fabulous grass paper and also the cobblestone paper that I found in my scrap pile! My card became more of a "I want to make you Smile today" rather than a "Get Well" card. Doesn't the Snail sliding down the sidewalk remind you of Spring! Here is the little Snail Mail message he is carrying! I'll include my Get Well Message inside the card so it fits into Max's Goal!
- Stampin' Up! Scrap CS, ribbon and punch for the Snail Mail
- Scrap Pile pattern papers
- B is for Boy Cricut Cartridge
- My Pink Stamper More Punnylicious Stamp Set (snail mail)
- Pink By Design Scripted Year Stamp Set (cherish today)
- Signo White Gel Pen
- Google Eyes
Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge B is for Boy/Sugar & Spice
The Paper Variety Get Well Soon Challenge
Creative Sisters Monday Challenge #3 Think Spring
Scraps 4 Fun Use Your Scraps Challenge
GAB Challenges #5 Color Challenge (Now this challenge was to use Pear Pizzaz, Early Expresso, and Crumb Cake but I did not have any scraps in these colors big enough to make the Snail. I tried to use a green, dark brown, and light brown to fit into the challenge and I hope this is close enough. If not, please feel free to remove my link for this challenge. Thanks ladies)
Wow! One card, 5 different challenge themes! I hope this gets the message out there and I hope it inspires you to make a card for Mighty Max so he can reach his Max a Million Card Goal! Thanks for stopping by today!
This card was a top pick at GAB Challenges
