Cooking with Cricut Challenge #81 Card Outreach

Okay, this is seriously the best project I have been a part of! This week the challenge at Cooking with Cricut is to make "Thinking of You" cards for two amazing young girls who are battling with cancer. You make a card for them and mail it to an address listed at Cooking With Cricut; they will then send a package of thoughful cards along to these girls.

My first card is for a 6 year old girl named Emily who apparently loves pink, purple, kittens and horses (what six year old girl doesn't?) Emily is battling Leukemia.
You can read more about Emily on Madison's blog here.

For Emily I decided to go uber-girly and stick to what they said she loves!

This picture shows the folds a bit better. I used a guide at Split Coast Stamper to make the folds.

All cuts are from Kate's ABCs (other than the grass along the bottom which is from Create A Critter).

The next card is for Patty who is 13 and is battling neuroblastoma.

You can see more information about Patty and how to send her a card at the Cooking with Cricut website. In all the photos I saw of Patty I noticed how she loves fashion (make-up, sparkles, cute hats etc;). I also read on her caring bridge page that she sketches and designs dresses. So, I used Forever young to make her this:

The inside says "Be Strong"

I really hope you'll join in for this challenge. What better reason to make uplifting cards? Head on over to Cooking with Cricut and link up your project!

I am entering the Pink/Purple card into two challenges:
Celebrate the Occassion "Just Because" challenge
Cutie Pie Challenge "Favorite Stamp" (I L-O-V-E my "Oh Happy Day" Stamp! Got it in the dollar bin and use it for lots of different projects!


  1. Totally awesome job on both cards. Your step card is so colorful and cute, and your designer card is very elegant. I'm sure they will both brighten the girls' day!

  2. Great job, Melissa! Both of these cards are fantastic and play to what these girls love best. They will love them!
