My Card for Charlie...

This is the card I made for the challenge over on Dustin Pike's Blog. It was really moving and sad to read about these lovely special children and their families. Their stories touched my heart. My first choice has since sadly died and at first I really didn't want to go back and choose another child. Tempting fate. But we must send support, it's not much is it? Just a few moments of our time, to send hugs and hope from our part of the world, to a child we will never know, or see or touch...So I'm Sending Hugs to Charlie...

Please post a smile...


  1. What a sad story dear, but I now feel as if I must pop over and join in, what a simply fabulous idea it is. An your lovely happy colourful card is sure to cheer Charlie up
    Hugs Jacqui x

  2. Wow Lyn, I also must pop across to the blog to see whats going on, I love your card and im sure it will bring a smile to Charlie's face, children love bright colours, and the actually image is smashing. love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

  3. I feel the same too Lyn & will have a look at your link.

  4. I had the link at the top for a while. The Challenge finishes today, midnight over wherever Dustin's blog is, probably early tomorrow for us in England I guess, but of course, anyone can sent a card, any card, at any time. They feature five children during the month, all you have to do, is click the picture, read their story, and then, send a smile, by ending them a card, an address comes with their story
