Thought for the day -

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Helen Keller

Hello.  It is another scorcher her today so you know where I am, lol.  Too hot to venture outside- although I did make a quick trip to Michaels.

My card today is for a very special blog hop challenge for a little girl from New Hampshire.  Her name is Bella Tucker and she developed a very severe staph infection that resulted in the amputaion of all 4 limbs.  The challenge is to make a card for Bella. We want to flood her mail box with cards! For more information on the challenge and the address if you would like to mail Bella a card can be found here.  There will be a challenge held every Tuesday until July 13th and the grand prize will be awarded then- over $150 worth of stamping goodies!!

My card today was inspired by the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and my color scheme was inspired by the Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge which is monochromatic & wings.

My image was made especially for Bella and can be purchased at Sunshine & Giggles Stamps. All proceeds from the sale of this image are being donated to Bella's medical fund.
