Adorable digi for a cause and cupcake craft challenge

Hi everyone, hope you are all enjoying a wonderful labor day weekend in the States or have had a fabulous weekend elsewhere. I have two cards for you today. The first I'm so thrilled to share with you. As many of you know, I am raising cards for my 13yo neighbor who recently had her arm amputated after a boating accident. And I have to say I'm overwhelmed by the response, you are all amazing!! When I told my friend Densie about the accident and how I wanted to do something for Paige, we came up with a great idea!!! One of Whimsy Stamps' amazing designers created a digi just for Paige!! It's called a teddy for Paige and the proceeds from this digi will go right to Paige's medical fund!! (It's a $3.00 digi) Not only is it a super sweet and amazingly kind and generous thing for Denise to do, but the image is so fabulous!!!! I can't thank you enough Denise, hugs!! Here's a quick card I made using the new digi!! For more info on my card drive including blog candy donated by me, Paper makeup stamps, Dustin Pike, Whiff of Joy and Whimsy Stamps click HERE. And huge hugs to all of you who have sent a card so far, thanks so much!!!!

I echo Jane here Erin, you have your entry posted before I've posted my DT card! It's a wonderful card for a very sad situation. I hope the doctors don't need to amputate anymore or Paige's arm and am so pleased that she has loving people like you around her.
