A Card for Michael

A fellow Canadian blogger, Naomi of Creative Bug on the Loose, recently put forth a request for cards for her son, Michael, who is due to have surgery to correct an issue with his feet.  Michael has autism and has had to face a number of challenges so far in his short life, but faces those challenges with a bright smile and an inquisitive nature.  For more details on Naomi's card call, please check HERE.



As many of you know, I have a 10-year old son with autism, so as soon as I read Naomi's plea, I was in!!  I wrote to Naomi to find out a bit more about Michael and learned that he is a fan of Webkins.  My little guy also loves Webkins - especially "Froggy".  As such, we decided to make a Froggy card for Michael.


I used Sesame Street Friends to create this shape card.  I embossed the yellow tummy with my Cuttlebug and added some spots of glitter to the middle of each raised bit using my Stardust Gelly Roll pen.  I used George and Basic Shapes to create the oval for the logo and Mickey Font for the "W".   I wasn't too sure about the big red eyes, but my little guy insisted as "Froggy's" eyes are red... so red eyes it is!

Our card is in the mail - along with a letter my son wrote to Michael - as well as our thoughts and prayers too!
