Lots of Love for Lauryn Card Drive

Isn't this little girl just precious? Let me introduce you....
Lauryn was diagnosed with Leukemia on March 27, 2014. She is currently hospitalized in the DC area undergoing chemotherapy to fight this terrible disease.  Lauryn is Linda Payne's granddaughter...many of you in the stamping community probably already know sweet Linda!

As news of Lauryn's illness spread via social media, many of you have asked if there is anything you can do to help, so we have come up with a plan. We decided to have a Card Drive and would like to invite YOU to help by sending "happy mail" to Lauryn and her family.

Please create cards to share your love and encouragement for Lauryn and her family. Lauryn's parents are Josh and Elizabeth and she has two older siblings: Lily and Logan. We thank the Lord for this dear family and need to pray for them as they are seeking to glorify the Lord throughout this trial. 

Cards can be mailed to:

Children's National
Hematology/Oncology RM 437
Lauryn Newsome
111 Michigan Ave NW
Washington DC 20010

Here is a card I created for Lauryn using a darling image 
from Your Next Stamp Tobi with Pinwheel 

Now you should of arrived from Marlena's blog and if you are just joining us 
please go over and begin on the Lots of Love for Lauryn blog!!

I thought this sweet image would bring a smile to Lauryn's precious 
face and brighten her day a wee bit!!

I paper piece her sweet dress and then cut a second pinwheel to create 
a 3D effect.

To help share this effort with sending Lauryn and her family as much love 
as we can to show our love and our support. 

I am offering some candy 

For a chance to win 
$10.00 Gift Certificate to your favorite online store 

Here is what you need to do:
Share Lauryn's badge on your facebook page or blog with 
an invite to your friends to send "happy mail" to Lauryn

then leave me a comment here on this post telling me 
how you shared the badge!!
I will select two comments that shared Lauryn's badge 
to each receive a $10.00 gift certificate to your favorite online store!!

Drawing will be done on Monday April 21st

You can find updates on Lauryn via a Facebook page that has been set up by some family. It is Fight on Little Lauryn. They have shared how encouraging it is receive a simple "like" on a Facebook status or words of love and encouragement that is posted.
