Isn't this little girl just precious? Let me introduce you....
Lauryn was diagnosed with Leukemia on March 27, 2014. She is currently hospitalized in the DC area undergoing chemotherapy to fight this terrible disease. Lauryn is Linda Payne's granddaughter...many of you in the stamping community probably already know sweet Linda!
As news of Lauryn's illness spread via social media, many of you have asked if there is anything you can do to help, so we have come up with a plan. We decided to have a Card Drive and would like to invite YOU to help by sending "happy mail" to Lauryn and her family.
Please create cards to share your love and encouragement for Lauryn and her family. Lauryn's parents are Josh and Elizabeth and she has two older siblings: Lily and Logan. We thank the Lord for this dear family and need to pray for them as they are seeking to glorify the Lord throughout this trial.
Cards can be mailed to:
Hematology/Oncology RM 437
111 Michigan Ave NW
Washington DC 20010
You can find updates on Lauryn via a Facebook page that has been set up by some family. It is Fight on Little Lauryn. They have shared how encouraging it is receive a simple "like" on a Facebook status or words of love and encouragement that is posted.
Here is the fabulous group of bloggers who have joined us in promoting this Card Drive. We would love for you to hop with us as numerous bloggers have blog candy and all you need to do is leave a comment...

The card I have made for Lauryn uses an image offered by Claire Keay of Jellypark for a donation to the family. Claire drew this from an actual photo of Lauryn! isn't that so cool! there are more images in the set if you are interested. Several other artists donated digital images, too, so be sure to check out the Lots of Love for Lauryn blog to see them all featured.
I won't go into a lot of detail about the products on my card. if you would like more info, please either leave a message in the comments or send me an email. don't want to take up too much of your time in case you are trying to stop by other blogs today.
thank you for popping in! and please consider helping out this family if at all possible. :)
