A card for Super Sam


This week over at Fairy Fun Fridays is and inspiration challenge using this photo....


I had two inspirations for my card. The first after reading on Roberta's blog about a boy named Sam who is 5 and just beginning his battle with cancer. They are doing a card drive and of course I knew immediately I wanted to make a card for him... You can get more information if you're interested over at Kathy's blog to get more info on how you can make Super Sam's day. I think this Roocat image is perfect for this type of card and the flowers/vase reminded me of the plant pot. I pulled the colours from the photo. My card is for these challenges.... Sketch - Papertake Weekly, Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - boys, Crafty Catz - boy. I've got a busy day today, work, clean, cook for DH, and get ready for Chase's 7th birthday party tomorrow, see you all later!
