Jayme's Card

I would like to share this with you,the lovely Lisa one of my Fellow Whimsy DT buddies has a very special request which I hope you can help her with, here's what Lisa has to say:I am having a special event for my sister Jayme. She is in her early 50's and has terminal lung cancer. To make it worse, her sweet dachshund Molly passed away a couple weeks ago. Today we learned her cancer has spread to several other areas and her time is running out. I am asking for all my card making friends to send her a fun card...not really get well cards obviously, but something pretty or funny that will make her smile. She is a frog collector so frog cards would be awesome! I have been blessed by all those I design for to have a wonderful offer of blog candy. Details are below on how to enter. I will choose a winner June 2nd.If you would like to know more about this please pop on over HERE

After Reading this the Lovely Crissy Armstrong One of Whimsy stamps Artists sat down and created a Special Digital Freebie

Please click Here to download this cute and fun digital image! Jayme is a frog lover, so Crissy has designed this sassy Beach Baby Jayme image in honor of Jayme, with hopes of giving her a giggle. Please click HERE to read more about Jayme and Lisa's RAK request!
