Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning folks.....the challenge this week from Daring Cardmakers from Sue is very special one....touched my heart big time.....

MAKE A CHILD SMILE
and why is it special.....just read what Sue has to say....
Well, it’s special because this week we are very proud to be linking up with Post Pals, an organisation that was set up to create smiles for children who suffer from life threatening and long term illnesses. As part of the dare, and the most important part at that, I would like you to actually post your card to one of the children listed on the Post Pals web site.
It’s very simple to do, just visit their Home Page where you’ll see they have some ‘featured’ children at the top of the page and to the Left in the side bar there’s a whole data base of children and their stories. Just follow the five easy steps to send your card.

It was a very humbling experience visiting Post Pals and reading all the childrens' stories....I am sending my card to Charlie H....whose cheeky smile melted my heart......so come on folks...join in if you can.....let's get those crafty fingers working..... make a cheery card for a sick child and put a little bit of happiness into the lives of these wonderfully brave children......hoping to get another card made for a special little girl and Buddy is going to join in too and send some cards.
What am I doing today....well it's morning stroll first and oh dear the weather is looking a bit dreary...misty and damp but hot and sticky and then I am off to meet up with a very special lady....my lovely bloggy bud Dawn.... back here for coffee and to meet up with the hooligan himself (and how naughty is he....after his little bloggy adventure yesterday) then we are taking a trip out to Alford to visit our lovely new fantastic craft shop.....Simply Create.....Dawn is in for such a treat.....I just know she will love it.....have a spot of lunch while we are there......that is if we have enough pennies left.....toodle oo for now....catch up with you all tomorrow for a special fella's birthday............Hugs Kath xxxxx
P.S. Early post from me today....because for some reason Mr Bloggy has decided he can't be bothered with scheduled posts at the moment....this is a known issue on Blogger and they are looking for a fix...so if you are affected....hang in there folks
