This year I am adding a new family to my Christmas card list. Addie is a 6 year old little girl who is not expected to live for another Christmas. Her family's request is for her to receive a 'lifetime of Christmas cards'. Addie especially loves handmade cards or artwork by other children.

I'll be sending Addie a card - won't you consider joining me? The card does not have to be handmade. The family appreciates anything they receive.
The Christmas card I will be sending Addie and her family -
This is a stamp set I bought many years ago. I love the calico angel and letters. The ruffle is made by using the scallop punch on a long strip or paper and then crimping it with the crimping tool. The crimping makes it more flexible to glue around the back of the oval.
The card has a surprise - a pop-up trio of calico hearts. I will put some tabs on it so they know how to pull it to make the hearts pop up. I love making the pop-ups but always wonder if the recipient figures it out :-) I hope this will bring a smile to Addie's face as well as her mom and sisters.
