Sprinkled with Love

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're having a sparkly day. :o)

Last week I mentioned the precious family I found via a Prayer Page while looking for kiddos to pray for. My heart was guided to create for them. I'm happiest using my paper passion to bring love and sunshine to those in need. First I made a card for her parents (found HERE), which I hope they love as much as you all did.

Today I have my card for sweet Audrey, the precious 1.5-year-old child who is battling an abundance of serious health issues... and has been since she was born. It is heartbreaking.

Her beautiful eyes are unable to be opened right now, as she is on a form of life support to help her body heal from some of her health conditions. I wanted something extra bright and cheerful to greet her when she awakes:
The moment I saw this rainbow shaped card cut file on Cardmaking Paradise, I had to make it for Audrey. She endures so much, but I truly believe her rainbow is coming. This is a tangible declaration of it. :o) I wish my pictures were better, but I think the love still shines through.
My papers are from various Doodlebug Designs collections. Wee ones like her love color and patterns, so I used an assortment. My sentiment is from Whimsical Designs, which I stamped upon a sunbeam-filled paper and cut it out with a Spellbinders Nested Lacy Pennant. The enamel dot accents are from Doodlebug's spring assortment.
My sprinkles of love are made with the Memory Box Precious Hearts, which hang from Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine. Rather than a simple embossed cloud, I opted to fill it with rainbow butterflies. :o) During these terrifyingly dark days, divine transformation is happening within her. The sun was made with My Craft Spot's Lacy Banners, as I felt a peek of sunshine made this even happier.
The interior is just pink (pure pink love!), so as not to interfere with the patterns when viewed from an angle. I love this little girl with all of my heart and I pray this brings a smile to her fighting heart.

If you want to support this family and follow Audrey's journey, her Facebook prayer page is Audrey's Army. She is approaching 10K prayer warriors and I am honored to be one of them! Want to know something fun? Unbeknownst to me at first, this little angel is just down the road from me. It's nice to bless someone in my area. :o)

Thank you for visiting! I wish you a sunshiny day. :o)

  12. Woooo! Poor little Audrey. Some children endure so much in their tiny lives. Your rainbow card is incredible, Karen. The attention to details, like the inking of each rainbow color, and the lining in your cloud - all of it together, is a work of art (was that a run-on sentence?). The parents will treasure this card as much as Audrey. Think of how bright the colors are for the baby to gaze upon! I feel your loving prayers for her. hugs, de
