Special DT Friday Challenge

Hello all my super crafty friends! Thank you for visiting us today for this very special DT post and challenge.

Well as you all know my super sweet friend Betty from Simply Betty Stamps has just found out her son Christian has stage one throat cancer, as you can probably imagine this is a tough time for them. Yesterday we had a  special blog hop and auction to help raise money for his medical costs, you can find that post HERE .

Ok so I wanted to have this special Challenge that will last until Saturday October 22. All you have to do for this challenge is link up a card (any theme, colors, etc.) for Christian. Lets lift his spirits and let him know we are all thinking about him. You can send your card here.

Christian Ford
P.O. Box 132314
Big Bear Lake, CA  92315

I will be picking one random winner from this challenge to receive these two stamps from the new Jude and the Rockers fall line! Aren't they cute!
 Now on to our projects for today!

For my project I created this card for my sweet friend Betty! I know she is an amazing woman and will be strong for her family but I want her to know she can always call me if she needs anything! I made this card using my beloved Zombie Teen Lola.
It is a trifold card! I just love the way this card looks! I used my "Text Talk" and "Totally Witchin" stamp sets but altered the ghoul friend stamp, it originally says lets hang out ghoul friend but since we are in different cities I figured call me was more appropriate. If we could hang out I would totally be there everyday lol!  I hope you know you can call me whenever Betty!

Ok so now on to my awesome DT's cards using the colors from our color challenge ! You still have time to link your projects up Here for a chance to win some AWESOME vinyl!
using "have a cool yule"

using "Monster Kisses"

using "Besties for life"
Now we also have 4 very special guest designers today, my children Ashley, Daryl, PJ and Vanessa wanted to do their part and make a card to send to Christian too! They worked so hard on their cards all by themselves all I did was stamp the images for them to color. 
 The first two belong to my son PJ 9 (jack card) and Vaness 6 Ali card, the second two belong to my daughter Ashley 11(zombie dino christian) and Daryl 13(oscar). Little Preston made a card too but he decided it looked better cut up in pieces, but he did color it himself lol.  I hope you like them Christian! They have all been sent out together for you, with a lot of love!

Are you ladies Ready to Rock? I hope so and I really hope that not only will you link up a card for Christian but also send it out to him. I know that getting all your beautiful cards will really lift up his spirits and help him through this difficult time in his life. This is what we craft for :)
