Cards for Kayla - Giving to others

One of the many joys in my life is giving to others. While looking through one of the blogs/sights that I frequent posted about a brave little girl name Kayla. This sweet little girl and her family are clinging to hope ... you see Kayla was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, BUT that is not all just two days BEFORE her father Jimmy, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This all happened just days before Christmas in 2008. Both father and daughter are battling for their lives! How much can one family take??Sweet little Kayla is in the hospital with neutropenic {no immune system}, and has bacteria in her blood ... she can not go to school ... see her friends ... play with others!
As a parent this breaks my heart!!The plea that has been given is to send this little angel some "sunshine" a card ... some stickers ... nothing much just a little something to show that others care.
How could I say no?? My daughters helped with this cute card. The image is High Hopes, and the cardstock is Stampin Up. I added bright flowers with pink brads (as pink is Kayla's favorite colour). I coloured the image in bright and warm colours with my copics. I used my Dalia Nestabilities in the for the background. My daughters also made her a few cards and picked out some stickers to send to her. If you are interested in sending Kayla a card, and to get more information you can look at My Organized Choas blog.
It is amazing what one simple act can do for your soul and brighten the day of a beautiful child!
Let me know if you send something... lets help brighten her day!!
