Card for Evan

While visiting one of my favourite blog friends, the lovely Barbara Diane (here) today, she had a very special post about a little boy named Evan. This little sweetie has Autism and has been placed in mainstream schooling and has been having a hard time trying to fit in with his class mates. His class is holding a contest to see who can collect the most cards from different states and countries. Apparently, he has been getting bombarded with cards each day and the other children are so excited to see what mail he receives each day at school. What a wonderful way for them to bond. This story touches my heart as my little man has Aspergers (high functioning autism) and has just started a new school. So far so good. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. If you would like to join in on this wonderful idea, head on over to Barbara Dianes blog (here). Or just send it onto this address:

Evan Rupp c/o Mrs. Parvizi First Grade, Frederick Douglas Elementary School, 100 Cedarmeade Ave, Winchester, VA 22601. Mention on the cards that you are a friend of his Grandma Froggy.

Will be back tomorrow with a couple of card's I've been working on. I'm loving Bugaboo images at the moment especially the Skelekin images.

Take care xo Jackie
