A Card drive for Elise and some Blog Candy
Hi all,I do have some cards to show you tomorrow,but first I have some sad news about one of our fellow bloggers.Elise from Paper Love Affair has just recently been diagnosed with breast cancer,she wasn't going to say anything,but decided to post her story in the hopes of raising more awareness of this disease.What also upset me was knowing that Elise has a 4 year old son,my youngest is 4 1/2 and as you  know you do worry about your children,I just can't imagine what Elise is going through right now.Elise has a long road ahead,so I am asking all you generous crafters out there to make Elise a cheery uplifting card to help her get through this.You can read Elise's Story here and here.When Bec from Bizzy Becs heard Elise's story,she wanted to help, so she has put up this AWESOME blog candy for one lucky person.Thanks Bec,you are wonderful and so very generous.So here is what you could win

Popcorn the Bear  - Thinking of You
Bildmalarna Stamps - Tossa in Cart 
Wags n Whiskers Stamps - Fairy Hannah
CC Designs Cutters - Cherry Border - Metal Die
CC Designs Cutters - Sawtooth Border - Metal Die

And now for the rules of entering the candy
  • Please make a card for Elise (something Cheery that would put a smile on her face) and link your card to the Mr Linky at the bottom of this post
  • In your post please include that we are looking for people to make a card for Elise and by doing so you also have a chance to win some candy
  • If you don't have a blog you can still enter the candy,just email me the card  you made for Elise to chezzy31@gmail.com and I will post it on my blog and add it to the linky for you
  • When you have finished the card and posted it on your blog email me at chezzy31@gmail.com to get Elise's address so you can post it to her (please allow me a day or two to respond,just in case I get flooded with emails)
So come on everyone,lets see if we can shower Elise with lots of cards and lots of love and hugs!!!!!

I will be making a card for Elise and when it is finished I will blog it so you can see.Here is the card I made for Elise.

Dang it! I missed the deadline ... I am hoping I can add a link here. (Not for entry into the comp ... but just so Elise knows that someone else is thinking of her!) I just really wanted to encourage Elise! Sorry ... I am so slack ... but I only discovered the challenge on Monday! (And ... didn't read the deadline date properly!)
Please check my 18Nov post on my blog to see my card for Elise! (link below)
