A Special RAK event...

Lisa, from Stamped Art by Lisa, is asking for some cards to be sent to her sister who is terminally ill.  Here is a little paragraph from her blog explaining what she would like...

     I am having a special event for my sister Jayme. She is in her early 50's and has terminal lung cancer. To make it worse, her sweet dachshund Molly passed away a couple weeks ago. Today we learned her cancer has spread to several other areas and her time is running out. I am asking for all my card making friends to send her a fun card...not really get well cards obviously, but something pretty or funny that will make her smile. She is a frog collector so frog cards would be awesome! I have been blessed by all those I design for to have a wonderful offer of blog candy. Details are below on how to enter. I will choose a winner June 2nd.

Here is the card I made for Jayme.

I love frogs and had been saving this paper to use for something special.  I think the qualifies.  The paper is DCWV.  I found this quote on the internet and thought it went perfectly and might put a smile on Jayme's face.  The twine and dragongly charm are from my stash.

Thanks for taking a look.  I hope you'll answer the call and help brighten somebody's day.
