Toys and Boys

My card today is for a sweet little boy, Noah, in Michigan, who is in his last stages of cancer. I read about Noah on Melanie Muenchinger's blog. Noah won't make it to Christmas and so he and his family are celebrating early. Noah's wish was to get many Christmas cards. I'm hoping he will like the cute little teddy bear one I sent his way. The bear is from Asela Hopkins newest set, "First Christmas". The really cool thing about this bear is you can make him into a Christmas bear... or... just a cute baby bear of any kind. When my son was a baby he had a bear much like this that had a pillow in it's arms and the same kind of hat on only the hat was blue white stars and moons on it. So... this doesn't HAVE to be JUST a Christmas bear. Hmmmm... maybe I'll make a card for him with just a bear on it. I do have the moons and stars as you saw from the candle I made below using this same bear. I decorated his baby room with teddy bears before he was born and he STILL loves teddy bears. (Something his dad teases him about but.. he's a strong boy... he just laughs.) Many he still has from before he was born. *smile* Asela's set is filled with just about any type of stamp you could need at Christmas... the bear.. the lovely cardinal... the gingerbread boy/girl cookies, bulbs and some wonderful sentiments as well. I hope you are working on getting that big day ready... it comes WAY faster than I'd like but... let's eat some turkey first, ok? Have a great day!! *smile& Signature
