Many of you know my story or rather my Henri's story and his fight with a life-threatening immune disease. Henri is five and he is cured. I read about Noah today on the Unity forum over at Splitcoast. This little boy is also five and Angela wrote "Noah Biorkman is in the last stages of a 2 1/2yr battle with Neuroblastoma Cancer. The family is celebrating Christmas next week and Noah's request is to get lots of Christmas cards..." So, today I created this card for Noah:
You've seen this monster through the window before. Originally I created him for a Halloween card and then reused him for my daughter's birthday, but I always had different wreaths in mind hanging from his door. Today he's looking for Christmas. I think his Christmas hat puts a little Grinch in him, but Henri assures me he's not scary--he's a santa monster! Again I printed my monster (I'm thinking of selling a digi set...would anyone be interested???) on Gina K pure luxury cardstock and coloured with copics. I printed the image again on red cardstock and used my largest Large Labels nestie to frame the door.
Wishing you Christmas Joy is in a font called A Little Pot--I didn't name it!!...but I think it's a fun, youthful font and the sentiment is exactly what I want to express to this family. Celebrate Christmas whenever it brings you joy and with the people who mean the most.
Please consider sending a card to Noah. I understand the address for cards is
