Christmas in July for Arianna

Christmas Card

Bella, from Bella Before and After sent out an SOS today. While Christmas is almost always a happy occasion, the reason for this Christmas related SOS is a sad one.

A little girl named Arianna loves Christmas. Sadly, she  has been battling cancer since 2009 and her doctors have advised the family to start making as many memories as possible with her. I can’t write more about this without getting too emotional. I also just finished sympathy cards for mf BFF and her family for the sudden loss of her brother. Too much sadness.

Friends of Arianna’s family are planning a Christmas party for her on July 22 which includes showering her with as many cards as possible.That’s something I can do!

I don’t  always have a lot of kid stuff in my stash but I did have some cute Santa rub ons. So I got those out and picked out some papers that coordinated. I found some green and white polka dotted paper that reminded my of snow, and a scrap of Beachy Shadow Wash paper.

Christmas Card Santas

I embellished the Santas with adhesive pearls on their hats, and even one for a nose and stamped the sentiment on another scrap. Had to use some Twinery twine in maraschino and key lime. Finished with some red and clear rhinestone strips. A little girl needs to have a blingy card dontcha think?

Thanks Carol, the card is beautiful. I am so happy that so many have offered to do something for her. I will be getting in touch with the family today to find out what more I can do. I have something in mind, but lets see if it will plan out.

Thanks again for all your support.

Hugs, Bella :)
