Tots to Teens with Sue

Sunday again, don't the weeks fly. I'm enjoying my time at the moment with my son who's flown out here to spend a week with us. It's been great catching up on all the family news. I'm going to miss him when he goes back.

Over at CD Sunday it's Sue's turn to choose the theme and she's chosen 'Tots to Teens'. A great theme and who doesn't enjoy making cards for the youngsters in our lives. So no excuse get those CD out and start creating.

When I began this project I had no one in mind but then I found a link to this site Post Pals . The children all have terminal illnesses and you're invited to send them either mail or little gifts. There's also a bio for each of them. I like that idea as you get to know your recipient better that way as they update you on their progress, Which child to choose is a problem tho. I decided to 'Pal' up with children who have Kidney problems as this is the charity here that is close to my heart.

 So this card is for a special little girl called Elle who's 3years old and has just been given a new kidney. After being on dialysis since she was 18 months old this will now give her a better life in the future.

The card is a shaped Princess Dress card which I thought would be ideal for  little 'Princess Elle'.

I cut the dress shape from beige card stock using a template one of my crafters brought to my craft group. The dress was the cut out again from white card stock. I ran the top half through the CB using the dotty folder. For the bottom I used  designer paper from Ooh La La Shawn Jenkins Collection CD. I added two pink buttons,  four flower toppers from a  friend, with added flower sequins from my stash. Then a bow of pink ribbon, from Lidls, was added to finish. I think it's really pretty and I hope it brings a smile to Elle my special little Princess.

Don't forget to pop over to CD Sunday to see the other creations my teamies have made. You won't be disappointed. Then have a go yourself but don't forget you must use a CD  when creating your card.

Have Fun!!
