My Card for Kate

You’ve seen my cards for Kate’s siblings, here is my card for Kate! Isn’t this bear sweet? I have been waiting for the budget to allow me to order this adorable set and its Accessory set from Taylored Expressions. I had to get more paper anyways so it was the perfect excuse to order these sets. I am just shooting myself for ordering them 4 days too late, just past 3 months in which all sales sent money to Sick Kid’s hospital in Toronto. Living so close, I’ve been there a few times. When Jameson was still in my tummy, there was a concern that my lupus may have affected his heart so we went down to get his heart ultrasounded through my belly. Cool huh? Fortunately he was and is fine. I’ve also spent time down there with special needs kids I worked with who needed surgery; gave their parents a break and all. It sure is an AWESOME place. I can’t believe I didn’t order in time so they could benefit. **GRRRR**

Such a sweet face! I can’t help but picture a little girl going into a hospital carrying this bag. I paper pieced the bag, popping up the whole thing except the straps and up another level, the bear and the backpack flap. All the layers, the backpack and the lace were sponged with tea rose Distress ink. A punched flower and pearl finishes the card.
