A Teddy for Paige - Please help!

As some of you may already be aware, my Whimsy team mate Erin is asking for some help. Not for herself, but for her 13 year old neighbour, Paige. Unfortunately, Paige has recently been seriously injured in an awful boating accident and has had to have part of her arm amputated. Whilst doctors are battling to save the rest of her arm, they are unsure at this stage exactly how much they can do. You can read Paige's story here.

Being the lovely lady that she is, Erin really wants to help the family and so is offering some amazing candy to one lucky crafter. All you have to do to enter is to make and send a card to Paige. Not only that, but Erin has asked our fab Whimsy boss Denise to get involved too. Denise and her hubby got right on to the case and created the gorgeous teddy above. 'Teddy for Paige' is now available from the Whimsy shop for the bargain price of $3 and ALL proceeds will go to Paige and her family.

As this card is for a very special person, I decided it was definately worthy of my new Cosmo Cricket papers! I love these babies and haven't stopped stroking them since they dropped on to my doormat last week!

Goodie List........
Digi Stamp: A Teddy for Paige from Whimsy.
Sentiment: 'Sassy Sentiments' by MFT.
Paper: 'Earth Love' by Cosmo Cricket
Cardstock: Bazzill 'Kraft'.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) & Copic markers.
Tools: Nestabilities.

I really hope you are able to support this incredibly worthy cause.
