Cooking with Cricut Challenge #25

Wow, is it that time already, April 15th! Everyone loves that day if you live in the US.  In honor of Tax day...we are challenging you to create something from your stash that is over 1 year old! Or use money in your project somewhere.  I came up with this little piggie (From my Kitchen), and the paper I used for the back ground is wayyyyyyy over a year old.

Cheering up and get well wishes

Erin at posted this request. I emailed her and asked her if she would mind if I re-posted it.  So if you have a chance to send a card or two that would be great!! Thank you!!

Scrappy Friends,
There is a young man that could really use some cheering up and get well wishes.

Colton Bradenburg has been fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukeima since 2007. He is currently receiving chemo treatments that have really taken a toll on his body. You can read Colton's story here on his CaringBridge page.

What I would like to do for Colton, with help from you my scrappy friends, is to flood him and his family with get well, cheer up & be happy cards. They are looking at a somewhat lengthy stay at St. V's and we all know how horrid a hospital can be after a few days. Colton LOVE John Deere and his (stuffed) cow Francis.

Cards can be mailed to Colton right at the hospital:
Colton BradenburgC/O St. Vincent Hospital
835 South Van Buren Street
Green Bay, WI 54307-3508

If you would like to drop a line of encouragement to his parents I am sure they too would appreciate the fun mail. Their names are Sarah and Nathan Kopf.
Thank you in advance my scrappy friends. Let's all work together to put a smile on the faces of this wonderful family.

Hi Anita,
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'm your newest follower. It's seems like I'm always cleaning and moving things from room to room. The best thing I've ever found cleaning was my car title. I thought I had lost it in a move (actually two) and there it was right where I knew it was. I guess I overlooked a million times. I'll post your giveaway on my blog too.
Thanks to everyone who particiapated in my Spring cleaning give away!!
