A Halloween Card and a Cause

Hi friends! October is a really hard month for the stamping and paper crafting community. I find that I just can't walk about from these causes especially when such a small contribution is asked from you.

Not too long ago, I saw a post about the owner of Simply Betty Stamps and how her son has cancer and needs surgery. Though Christian should make it through his surgery and be just fine, the family needs some financial help getting him the surgery. As a mom, I couldn't turn away from this. If one of my kids needed a surgery, I wouldn't know what to do. We don't have the means to cover that. I bought a digi stamp to go into their fund. Though it was only a few dollars, I hope it helps a bit. For more info, go HERE.

Here's the card I made with Simply Betty's Pumpkin Mickey Hat Betty. I LOVE this super cute image! Isn't she a doll? I combined this card with a couple challenges. I used Paper Works Co sketch #101, Wee Memories Challenge #71 to make a Halloween card, and Shop Our Stash #21 to use black and orange. The paper is Doodlebug and I colored with Copics.


Have a great day, everyone!
