Looking for some help please ladies **2nd candy draw added*** and Paige update!

Hi everyone,

Paige update:......we are home by nana's!!!!! paige is doing so well. she is able to walk now and sit up in a chair. her appetite is back and she is able to sleep through the night now without a nurse or doctor barging in to poke or prod her. no more needles for a long time!!!!

thank you again to all of you!!!!


I looking for some help here. For those of you who read my last post, I mentioned briefly of the condition of my neighbor. She, Paige age 13, was in a serious boating accident a few weeks ago and just had part of her arm amputated. The doctors are working to save the rest, but are unsure how much they can do. Here is a link to the article that describes it more in detail. Included in the article it mentions they've run out of room for flowers and stuffed animals, but cards are welcome. Well my family and I really want to something and I thought amazing cards from all you wonderful ladies would be just what could cheer Paige up. She is one of those girls that ALWAYS wears a smile.

I'll be offering up some BLOG CANDY for anyone who mails a card either to me to hand deliver or directly to Paige using the address from the article.
Cards can be mailed to Paige Welch at Boston Children's Hospital, 300 Longwood Ave., Boston, MA 02115.

All you need to do is make a card for Paige, post on your blog, leave a comment here and mail it out. Not only will you then be entered in the drawing but you'll also be helping a very sweet girl and her family through a very hard time. I'd love to reach 100 cards for her!!!

Thank you in advance for all your help. OK So I have......
pack of SU prints pack
Queen & Co brads
Clear stamp set
Some adhesive ric rak
A spool of ribbon
Some adhesive fabric tape
Letter pins
Some stamped images
PLUS a bag of assorted brads, buttons, charms, eyelets flowers etc(not shown)
