Is it Spring yet? Part 2....

Wow! Two posts in one week? Things are looking up! I made this card last night using some free stamps which came with the latest issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

I had a bit of a rubbish evening - terrible toddler tantrums resulting in a bedtime 3 hours later than normal for a certain small person who shall remain nameless. This of course meant that I should have gone to bed when he finally did, but I was so wound up, I felt I had to have a bit of stress relief in craftiness.

Here is the card:
The image has been coloured with Promarkers, and I'd like to enter him into the following challenges:
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Spring
For Fun Challenge - Spring

I'm going to be sending this card to a very special little boy, and if you could help by sending him a card too, I know it would be gratefully received. I found out about him through a friend on Papercraft Planet, and his story is as follows:

"Max Low is a 12 year old from Neola, Iowa. He has been battling cancer for half of his life. His doctors recently told his parents to enjoy the time they have left with him. His wish is to get 1 million cards. He has currently gotten about 23,000. If you would like to help Max get his wish, please send a get well card to the following address: Mighty Max Low, C/O Greg and Bambi Low, PO Box 111, Neola, IA 51559"
