A Sketch and a Request for Help

  I saw a request for Help this AM on Nana Connies blog and decided to whip up a quick card- well, I should be cleaning, but I HATE to clean....hehehe
  I made a card for Edith and used the sketch challenge at Mark's Finest Papers.
 The Washi is from China- I bought it a couple of years ago in Shenghen- much cheaper there, but the Shipping and handling was alot (hehehe aka my plane ticket and hotels....) . The Gold cardstock is from Marco's Papers. The CS is Tangerine from SU. The images are from Mark's Finest Papers.

Here is the info to help Edith:
Hello, dear blogging friends.
One of our blogging-paper-crafting-friends, Sue Drees, recently shared some sad news.
Her sister, Edith, fell on June 22, and was diagnosed with a brain tumor. On June 25, the tumor was successfully removed. However, the biopsy brought back devastating news - a fast growing Brain Cancer. Sue's sister is determined to fight this all the way. She began physical rehabilitation on July 4.
Sue and Edith both live in the North East (USA). Sue and her husband transport Edith's husband to the hospital each day and check up on changes and quality of care.
While Sue did not ask for help, others kept in touch with her and asked if Edith would enjoy receiving cards of encouragement and support.
Sue was so grateful that the on-line community might help in this way - it was something she had not considered.
Edith enjoys quilting and LOVES flowers! Edith's beloved fur baby is a little pug and they miss each other very much.
Will you please consider sending a note, tag, or card (or two or three?) offering encouragement? Edith valiantly fights other illnesses in addition to this new challenge. She is a very courageous soul.
Cards can be sent addressed to Edith c/o Sue Drees and she will take them daily to the hospital.
***To obtain the mailing address, please write:
Thank you for making a difference in one person's life, by bringing in a little sunshine.
  If you'd like to post this information on your own blog, feel free to copy and paste it into a post.  The more people we reach, the more cards will be there to encourage Edith in her fight.  And if you believe in the power of prayer, add Edith to your daily prayers.  I'm keeping her in mine.  :-D

 Thanks for posting this Nana Connie- and I hope many papercrafters will drop Edith a card in the mail.
