A Card For Elise

One of our fellow bloggers has been brave enough to share with us the fact that she has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. Elise from Paper Love Affair wanted to raise awareness of the disease and make sure ALL women - young and old - regularly check for lumps. It is such a brave thing to open up your life like this but she may just save someone by doing so! Elise is a young mum with a 4yo son and she has a long road ahead and I know soo many people are thinking of her. You can read her story HERE.

One of my blogging friends - the sweet and talented Cheryl from My Card Making Heaven - is holding a card drive for Elise - and the lovely and generous Bec from Bizzy Bec's is offering a little something to one person who joins in - you can check out the candy and all the rules on Cheryl's blog - it's at the top until November 16th.

And if you have ANY reason why you think a card won't make any difference you MUST read THIS amazing post by another blogger who doesn't know Elise but wants to help bring a smile to her face!

Thanx to ALL of these amazing women for your thoughts, actions and words - it's amazing what can be done when we work together. I don't know Elise either - but I've had 4 friends who have been touched by this disease. I have sat through chemo session with one and supported the others in any way I can! So hopefully we can shower Elise with cards and smiles and SUPPORT!

Here's the card I'm sending her way....it's full of glitter to add a sparkle to Elise's day and good wishes for the road ahead!
