Cards for a young girl- URGENT!!

If you're reading this post I have a huge favor to ask-as we know in this blogging community, there's nothing like a small card to brighten someone's day. We all have stashes of paper, glue, buttons, etc. and all of us have scraps laying about. Today I'm asking that you take 10 minutes of your time and make/send a card to a young girl whose parents just found out she has a brain tumor. This is not a family I know closely, but her father was taking part today in an activity to introduce children to the art of music and my son got to be one of the performers. We all know when someone cheers for our kids-whether it be at a recital, play, concert, whatever, our hearts swell up with joy at the excitement that someone else cares. Well, in this case, there's a young girl whose family needs cheering and support at a time when uncertainty is all they know. Please consider sending a card of encouragement at a time when they really need it. The address is :

Elizabeth Abbott Spencer
c/o Jim Spencer
p.o. box 1095
Pittsford N.Y. 14534

If you send a card, please e-mail me @  It would mean the world to me to know you've taken the time to care. God Bless-Raquel
*** Update: I was told the little girl is 8 years old. Thank you all for asking and offering to help!


  1. Oh, I hate hearing of these situations. I will send a card and email you to confirm it's sent. How old is she?

  2. Absolutely will send a card. How old is she?

  3. Of course, I will send a card, then let you know. I hate that these poor children and their families have to go through something like this. I will keep them in my prayers as well.


  4. On it!!! Putting it in the mail tomorrow!

  5. Sent a card out today with best wishes to the family

  6. Sent a card today. I will continue to keep this family in our prayers.

Mermaid Pop Up card using Cricut Design Space 3

Thank you for stopping by!
In this video tutorial you will learn how use Cricut Design Space 3, Print & Cut, and other little details to make a stand-out Mermaid card for any occasion!

There are 3 videos total.

 In the 1st you will learn how to add a Pop-Up element, using Score lines with Cricut Design Space, and shapes available in the Cricut Access library.

In the 2nd video, you will learn how to Add Text to personalize your card.
***Key points are to always EDIT in groups, allowing yourself to work in sections. Once your text looks as you like:  Select the entire text box, flatten it, then attach it to your shape. It will automatically cut your shape and keep your text as a print option.***

The 3rd video will explain assembly, as well as the "Bleed" option to printing your shapes. I hope you enjoy learning how to use all of these awesome elements in Cricut Design Space3. Please leave me feedback, or a link to where I can see what you have created!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
