Get Well for a Child


This morning my friend Liz, at Liz's Paper Loft, posted a heartbreaking story about a first grade student of one her friends. Little Juliana was recently diagnosed with bone cancer, and doctors may have to amputate one of her legs. If you're interested in making a card for Juliana, head over to Liz's blog.

I love the popsicles cut from the Imagine Yummy cartridge, and I thought they would make a fun get well card for Juliana. I cut the popsicles in layers at 3.8". I am entering this card in Peachy Keen's "Let's Face it Friday Sew Super Cute Challenge," where we needed to include real or faux stitching and some cute Peachy Keen faces. I hope it brings a smile to Juliana's face!
