Card Drive Update and Card

Less than a month to go for my Card Drive for Addison.
I have received over 180 cards from so many places including Australia, India, Canada, Michigan, Kansas, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Florida, Virginia, Oklahoma, Maryland, Washington, California, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Jersey, Wisconsin and more!!!!!

I am so touched by the response and I know the family will be too.
They really had a rough Thanksgiving week that included a day in the hospital, treatments, and a round of strep throat complete with all three girls vomiting at some point.
I have known mom for over 15 years and I know that she is one tough cookie, but everyone has a breaking point no matter how tough you are.  

In addition to cards, they need our prayers for healing, strength, rest, comfort and moments of relief. Other ways to help is to donate to the Leukemia Society or donate blood to a blood bank near you.  There are so many people in little Addison's situation who can benefit from your gift of blood in your local community.   

Here's a card headed their way soon:

It was inspired by my hat after I ran the Color Run 5K where 
they threw colored powder at you at various stations during the race.   

Stamps: Lawn Fawn "Harolds ABCs" and "Say Cheese", 
Craft's Meow "Typically Teen",  Paper Smooches
Inks; SU! and Distress
Other:  Spellbinder Wonky Rectangles Die

I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes Challenge

My next 5K is December 8th!  
Love to have join the Card Drive for Addison.
Runs until December 20 and there are GREAT prizes!
Thanks for looking,
