Cards for Strangers

In the past two days, I've learned of two situations calling for cards.  Lisa Cook of Stamped Art by Lisa issued a random act of kindess request for her sister, Jayme.  Jayme has terminal lung cancer.  Apparently, she loves frogs and Lisa has asked that we make funny cards with frogs.  I decided to make another easel card (I'm quickly getting addicted!!) for Jayme.  I started designing with a frog from Paisley, but actually had a dream about this card using the frog from Paper Doll Dress Up.  I couldn't remember where he was from, but eventually found him. 
I learned of a second call for cards from Dustin Pike.  The young friend of his daughter was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.  For this card, I cut a fancy frame from Home Decor and used my favourite stamp from Stampin' Up.  The little butterfly and parts of the frame are glittered with a gel pen, although its hard to tell from the photo.  It's a very simple card, but with the paper I felt it needed no more.

(I will enter the frog card for this week's challenge at the CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge Blog.  This week, the challenge was to use a bit of green.  As green is my absolute favourite colour, I couldn't resist this one!)
