Special RAK Event for My Sister Jayme


*Edited to extend event through June 9th to
coordinate with Spoonful of Sugar Challenge



Photobucket



I am having a special event for my sister Jayme. She is in her early 50's and has terminal lung cancer. To make it worse, her sweet dachshund Molly passed away a couple weeks ago. Today we learned her cancer has spread to several other areas and her time is running out. I am asking for all my card making friends to send her a fun card...not really get well cards obviously, but something pretty or funny that will make her smile. She is a frog collector so frog cards would be awesome! I have been blessed by all those I design for to have a wonderful offer of blog candy. Details are below on how to enter. I will choose a winner June 2nd.

Directions to enter:
1. Create a card that is funny and a frog if you have one! (NO get well cards please)
Inside please include a note saying that you are a stamping friend of her sister Lisa's.

2. Mail your card to
Jayme Clevenger
2826 Wilshire
Woodward, OK 73801
USA

3. Post your card on your blog (if you have one) and directly link back to my event here.

4. Enter your direct link below

  16. Lisa, I'm so sorry to hear this. Do you know about the Cricut Card Fairy Army? We send out cards to all who ask, for what ever reason. We operate from the Cricut.com message boards. So if you'd like you could send a card request to our 'Commandars' at with all Jayme's basic info, and what are some of her loves. Like the frogs, or her fave colors. I hope we can help brighten her day.

  43. I found this request through my dear fellow DT member of Cowgirls Stamps Gina and I had to response. I've been in the hospital so many times for a long time as well. And I know what a sunshine a card can bring. So last night I sat down and colored your wonderful frog and made a card for her. My son posted it for me and I hope it will reach her in time.
    I wish you and Jayme so much strenght and courage on this last path she is walking. And I will have her in my prayers for a smooth and peacefull transition to the other side.
    With all my love and care...
