Some Special Children, Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge 15

Hello everyone it is time for another Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge. This week is a special challenge because not only would we like everyone to play along with us but we would hope you would like to bring some happiness to some every special children. There are three children that could use some sunshine from all you wonderful card makers.
The first is 8 yr. old Ethan, he is battling a deadful disease and is losing the battle he loves getting cards in the mail so this small gesture would definitely brighten his days.

The second is his sister Sierra, how terrible to see her brother suffer through everything he has gone through. She needs to know that someone is thinking about her during this time. Her life is on hold while the family deals with Ethan so any cards you have made that would make a smile would be great.

The third child is Bella Tucker. She is an adorable little girl would was happy and healthy until Easter day when she suddenly developed an infection. The infection didn't kill her but it did take both of her arms and legs. She is a very strong and brave little girl who needs all the smiles she can get while she spends the summer in rehab far from her home.
You can read more details about these three exceptional children and also about some great blog candy Kristen is offering for their cause here.

In honor of these children this week's

is to create a child's card. The design team have really created some fantastic cards to inspire you

Come play along with us and remember to use Basic Grey paper on your creation! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
