Card for Sam !

Boy oh boy. I have alot to say about this card (that is so unlike me.....LOL-now stop laughing)!

This is a card I made for Sam. (see below for explanation & sidebar for image to add to YOUR sidebar)
At Pixie Dust Studios you will find the following info:

"Send them to Sam is a card campaign.

I am challenging everyone to help little Sam fight Cancer. Sam is a wonderful and strong 5 year old boy. His battle with Cancer is just beginning. He was diagnosed with Stage 3 Lymphoma this week. He has a very tough fight ahead of him. I would love everyone to join me in helping Sam fight this and WIN! Sam will be in the hospital for many months. I am starting a campaign to fill his days with tons of cards from all over the globe. What fun for Sam to know that people from all sides of the Earth are supporting and thinking about him. I am going to give him a map book and a ton of stickers. He will put a sticker on each location that his cards come from. How awesome would it be to cover the whole Earth with stickers from people supporting Super Sam. This will be a great adventure for Sam to watch the LOVE and SUPPORT from every corner of the globe. Lets each set a personal goal of one card a month, one card a week, or one card a day.
                     Keep them coming so he never stops looking forward to the next card delivery."


Below is a button that you will also find at the Pixie Dust Studios. Print it on your card, paste it on your card, make a card of it, but just try to make sure you use the button somewhere on your card to Sam.
The image I used for my card is from the Sew Many Challenges blog & he is called 'Miki Military'.
They have had some doozy freebies over there this month & I thought this would be great for a little boy fighting to be healthy again!

Ribbon is from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store! My new fav. place to shop!! It is called Sheer Ombre Kiwi-Watermelon (geen & pink)!! LOVE IT!

Charm is misc. from a set I bought a while ago.


I have included the button on the inside of my card & perhaps I will set a sticker in the empty white space on the right.
