Let's all help Lyndall!

I found another cause on line for us stampers to rally around. Please visit this site to read about Lyndall and to see how you can help. Here is a little about Lyndall written by a close friend:

Lyndall is the most incredible and inspiring person I have ever met.She fought and won her battle with Cancer Ewing’s Sarcoma in her late teens, this battle meant she had to have her finger amputated to totally beat it. Heart breaking as it was. She soldiered on.This battle took a toll on her, but her can do attitude got her through. Years passed and the cancer lay dormant and what we thought was totally gone.But this year the rare cancer she had in her late teens manifested its ugly head yet again. This time it came back as a tumour resting on her heart.For the past 4 months she has undergoing extensive Chemotherapy to try and eradicate it. With baited breathe we have prayed and prayed for yet another recovery. But this time we are not as lucky. Her specialist is of the belief that the tumour is not going to shrink away totally from the chemo and radiotherapy and it remains inoperable. This means that it will most likely start to grow again and may start to spread.If I can quote from Lyndall during her battle she has said to her family and friends “Believe you me, long before Lorna Jane put it on a t-shirt my mantra has been “Never Give UP!!”

I read this and just had to help in any way I could. I bought this really cute dragon and the coupon digital stamps at the site and also sent a card to Lyndall to be opened at her fundraiser in September. I created the background out of dp and a border punch from Stampin up. The digital stamps were just printed and cut out to create this CAS but fun card for a child.

I entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Art Impressions and Craft Us Crazy.
