A teddy bear for Paige

Reminder: My 30K hit blog candy event goes on thru 9/11 midnight cst, here's the link

This card is for Paige. Erin (a Whimsy Design Team member) is having a card drive for her neighbor Paige who had a terrible accident. Here's the info Erin posted:

"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."

The above card is the one I'm sending Paige's way! This adorable bear is a digital image from Whimsy Stamps. Here's the info on how to get one of your very own!!!

From Whimsy Stamps Blog:
"Recently, Paige Welch, a young NH girl, was seriously injured in a boating accident. This child is the neighbor of our DT member Erin Bailey. Paige will be facing many months of recovery and many more medical bills. In an effort to help, Whimsy Stamps has designed a special digital image in honor of Paige. "A Teddy for Paige" is now available for download. All proceeds from the sale of this image will go to Paige's Account at Seacoast Credit Union in Exeter NH.
Erin is currently hosting a card drive and would love any cards you all would like to send to Paige to help lift her spirits and keep her going through this tough time.

We appreciate any help you can lend to this cause. Thank you! "
