Paper Makeup Stamps Special Release: Baylee Fairy

***Please scroll down for IPPITY post!***

The paper crafting world is one with a lot of heart. I think that's one of the main reasons I love the community so much. I have a very special post for you today that really has my heart in it.

Sonda Tadlock is a friend I met on Splitcoast Stampers. We live pretty close to each other but have not met in person yet. Sonda has a very special daughter and that's what my post is about.

Katie Cotton writes:
At the age of 9 months, Baylee was diagnosed with Leigh's Syndrome. Leigh's Syndrome is a metabolic-mitochondrial disease. The family was told to expect Baylee's life to be only of about 2 years. That she would never walk, talk, sit up or even crawl. But Baylee was a fighter and a lover of life! She loved to ride horses! She loved disney and princess Ariel. Baylee recently went to be with our Lord on January 9th at the age of 13. You can read all about Baylee, her too short life, and her family's amazing faith at

So, my good friend Carole Chesser and I approached my other good friend Katie Cotton who owns Paper Makeup Stamps. Katie contacted her artist Diem Pascarella and they came up with this amazing stamp. The proceeds of this stamp will go to the Tadlock family. I do hope that you will buy the stamp and help out.

Here is my card. I colored Baylee with a combination of Copics, Bic Mark Its and gel pen. The pink paper is Cuttlebug embossed with the Floral Fantasy folder. The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye. The die cut is Nesties Label 8. I hope you like it. I tried really hard.
