Emily is a sweet little 6 year old girl that has battled Leukemia since before Chrstmas 2011. She has had to endure more pain in a few short months than most adults in their entire life. She has gone from Leukemia to Rotavirus, to pancreatitis, to kidney stones, then to shingles, not to mention over 300 pokes in her tiny little body! From chemo to blood draws to feeding tube. Her bone marrow is finally at 0.00% so she is now in remission and back at home! She is still going through 7 different chemotherapy treatments but is finally doing better!

Now on to my card for Emily!

I wanted to make an easel card. I have never done this before and I couldn't believe how easy this was!! Background paper is EP and front sticker with sun with also EP, both from the Country Drive collection.

My sentiment is a stamp from TPC studio. Butterfly is a MS punch. Pink paper is from DCWV Nana's Nursery

I stamped my sun with a cute little PKS face, and hand drew and fussy cut my own little kite. Then I added Honeydew twine from the twinery and popped it up. Super easy! But ooohhh so fun and cute! :)

Thank you sooooo much for joining us in this great cause for Cards For Emily!! We REALLY REALLY hope you will participate and link up your card to put a smile on this very beautiful, very deserving little girl that Michelle is honored to call her niece. :)
