As promised (in this post) here is the card I made for Mia as part of the "I Feel the Love" Project started by Madison at Funky Cards. On Monday I shared the card I made for Mia's parents and here is the link to Marley's card (Mia's sister).
If you're not familiar with Madison's project, here's the scoop -- Madison started "I Feel the Love" in June. It is a monthly challenge that gives her blog followers the chance to create a card to give someone who may be going through a difficult time.
Last month's recipient was a teacher at her High School who is battling cancer for the second time. Madison collected 22 cards for Ms. Pentoney! This month the recipients are 3 year old Marley, 5 year old Mia and their parents, Nikki and Brent. Marley was diagnosed with a brain tumor near her optic nerve, brain stem and pituitary gland in August 2009. She has persevered through surgeries, a stroke that left her right side paralyzed, and numerous rounds of chemo. Madison has already collected 33 cards this month!
The "Make A Wish" Foundation recently granted Marley's wish and the family received a trip to Disney World. So I decided to make a Minnie Mouse card for 5 year-old Mia.
My card base measures 8 1/2" tall x 5 1/2" wide is made from a piece of Bazzil's pinkini. Minnie is cut at 5" wide and is from the Mickey & Friends cartridge. "Hello" is cut at 5" wide and is from the Cindy Loo cartridge. I used a little bit of chalk for Minnie's cheeks, some bling for flower centers and some pen doodling to complete her card. Other than the card base all of the papers came from my scrap stash. Here is what I started with:

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my "I Feel the Love" project. I hope maybe I've inspired you to hop on over to Madison's blog and become part of the IFTL Team -- anyone can join -- the only requirement is to share what you love doing with someone who needs some "love."
