Cards for Luke, PMS Thursday Night...May Baskets

I'm going to try my hand at the Card for Luke thing again. I got a few cards, but I really need more...Luke needs more. I know I have the greatest customers and I really want to bring some smiles to this little boy!
Please bring in a card or better yet...come in and make a card Friday and Saturday, and get your name in for a drawing for two different Fancy Pants Collection kits! Kara cut cards and lots of pieces for you to use. Come create and bring some joy to this little boy and his family. Every card you make here or bring in gets your name in the drawing. Make a bunch and get bunches of entries.

Read the story below!!



On Wednesday, March 10, 2010 the life of the Hansen family was changed forever when their active 7 year old son, Luke, was diagnosed with a brain stem glioma or a fancy name for a brain tumor. He has undergone 5 days of radiation and steroids in hopes to shrink the tumor and give him some mobility back. This is devastating for the whole family and we are praying for them. Luke has a rough road ahead of him for quite awhile.One thing we can do to help is to send cards to Luke and his family to encourage them, give them strength, and let them know how many people are thinking and praying for them. The most generous and kind people in the world are scrappers and card makers, so Angie Walter and I thought we'd have a Cards for Luke Card Drive.Think of how much it would encourage this family to receive cards from all of you. You can simply drop the cards off to me. Angie and I will box them up and pay to send them Luke's parents.The details:Cards can be for any member of Luke's Family:Luke (age 7)- The sweet little boy who is battling cancer.Big sister Kristian (21) and her husband Joesph.Big sister Jasmyn (16)Big Brother Logan (10)Big Sister Tori (8)Mom Barb and Dad Bill (Barb is the principal for the Hurley School District and Bill is a teacher/coach in Hurley!Cards can be anything cheery, encouraging, supportive, etc. Luke is a huge sports fan, he loves all sports and especially basketball. They are a family of God, so feel free to share messages of Faith. Anyone can send a card-even your children!Please write a message in the card and sign your name and where your are from. On the card, envelope, please write the name of who the card is for (Luke, Kristian and Joesph, Jasmyn, Logan, Tori, Bill and/or Barb). Also, please don't seal the envelope, as Luke's parents might want to preview the cards before the kids see them.You can bring gifts of stickers, color books, anything you would like to help Luke on his difficult journey. Angie and I will take care of all the shipping!There is no time limit...we will mail them as we get them! I would like to have some to mail here very soon!

I was inspired by the fabulous Vicki Chrisman's blog a few day back, she had these adorable May Baskets that she had made. Her reason: to save May Day! Lots of people don't celebrate May Day any longer and lots of our little kids don't even know about it! How about we save it and get the trend started again. Too fun!

We will be using cute little peat pots sprayed with the new Glimmer Mists, ruffling some crepe paper and just having fun! We will be making one of these one's and two of the the Tusssie Mussie's. Love it! I had so much fun creating! Flowers not included!! But you get the general idea!!!
