Two Challenges - One Project

Today I managed to combine challenges. Over on Something Completely Different, this weeks challenge is to create a tag, and the theme is 'Crowns'. I've had this chipboard crown for ages, I covered it with 3 bugs papers and added a few embellishments. This weeks DCM challenge is to make a card with a sick child in mind. They have linked up with the charity Post Pals, an organisation that was set up to create smiles for children who suffer from life threatening and long term illnesses. The idea is to post the card to one of the children featured on the home page of Post Pals. Life seems to be throwing me lemons at the moment, but after reading these childrens' moving stories, I realise how lucky I am. Here's the card I made for Amy P.

Aww Clare, I’m sorry that things have not been so great just recently but you’re right, reading some of those kids’ stories does help to put things into prospective.

I love the card you’ve made for Amy. Every little girl wants to be a princess and to
have a crown with your name on no less……what more can a princess ask!

Thanks for joining in this week.
