Freebie and a Call for Cards...

Every once in a while I ask for something in return for all of the freebies I give away. That time has come again...This past Monday night at a local school they held an event called "Dancing for Dylan" The turnout was tremendous...He is a 9 yr old boy recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor (Diffused Pontine Glioma) His blog is here http://dylandshaw.blogspot.com/ and you can read all about the things that this little boy and his family are going thru. In return for you taking an hour out of your day and a buck to mail the card  I have 6 images to give away to each person that sends a card to me that I can collect and take to his family. I would like to do this in about 2 weeks to give those overseas the time to get the cards here.  PLEASE feel free to make the card for Dylan, his family or both.  If you have wonderful words of encouragement you can add that to the card...or just a simple hello will work.

One of the images is this one...
This as well as the 5 others will not be for sale on my site (consider them Limited Editions). Only by making a card can you get this small set...I am not telling you that one of my images has to be used (though it would be nice) and seeings it's a boy this time around, I for some reason tend to have a lot of images geared towards boys...

Send the card to me:
Dustin Pike
P.O. Box 901
Roy, Utah 84067

PLEASE be sure to throw a note in there with your email address so I can send the set once your card is received. Though my kids think so I am not a mind reader...

Onto this weeks freebie...

Continue to let your kids think you read minds! And let them know you have eyes in the back of your head. My girls believed that one for years.

JoyfullyOrange In Heaven said...

Just found your blog. I'm touched that you would collect cards for this boy and family. I just happen to have 2 cardstock colors and matching paper sitting out that I have been trying to figure out what to do with and they EXACTLY match your colored bug! I will make a card and send it out first of the week (have to finish my mother's day card LOL)

Blessings to you and thanks for your freebies! Deborah-JoyfullyOrange

I've made a card which is in the mail. I've also posted a photo of it to my blog, along with a quote from your call for cards, hoping to spread the word a bit further. Dustin, your heart must be as big as the world! Thanks so much for letting us know about this. Dylan and his family are in all our prayers. My card can be seen at http://mygrammysattic.blogspot.com/2011/05/cards-for-dylan.html

Hi Dustin,

Thank you so much for passing along the information for Dylan and for Thomas. I will be putting their cards in the mail in the morning. Dylan's to you and Thomas to Thomas's address.

You truly have a heart of gold Dustin and we may not comment or recognize your generosity as often as we should, but please know how much we appreciate you for all that you do. For you to go the extra mile to put a smile on a little boys face speaks volumes on how sweet you are! You are a rare breed and I am so happy to have crossed paths with you!

This *Hug* is for YOU! You are pretty amazing!
