august pti blog hop

it's time for papertrey ink's august blog hop...where has the summer gone so quickly?!

color combo : hibiscus burst, summer sunrise, harvest gold, spring rain & aqua mist (the sketch associated with these colors has the 5 striped lines & the sentiment in the upper right above the lines).

i made this card with a special little girl in mind who i read about on the pti forum. after i got the card photographed, i immediately put it in an envelop so it's ready to go out in the mail tomorrow! here is a brief summary that a friend of her family's wrote:

"Our family has a dear friend who is fighting Leukemia for the second time. Her name is Meena and she is 7 years old. She actually relapsed in April with Philadelphia Chromosome Leukemia. She wont be coming home from the hospital they expect until the end of October or first part of November. She will be having full body radiation and then a bone marrow transplant. If anyone would like to help brighten her days by sending cards, I know her and her Nana (who has full custody of her) would really enjoy them.
Nana (Becki) is currently in her last semester of school to be a Nurse Practitioner. She stays day and night with Meena and doesn't leave the hospital except to go to clinicals during the day. They could both use encouragement and smiles!"

my prayers are with meena & meena's family as she goes through this trial in her life. i really hope this sweet pink owl card can bring a smile to her face!

  1. What a super sweet card! I LOVE the pink owl and the stripes below. I'm sure she'll love the card--that's so thoughtful. :)
