CWC #125: Card Outreach for Claire




Happy Wednesday and welcome to our weekly "Crafts With Cutters" challenge!  This week the Design Team is creating cards for this month's "I Feel the Love" Project recipient -- a precious 4 year old named Claire.  


On January 2, 2013 Claire was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a primary bone cancer that affects mainly children and adolescents. It's one of a group of cancers known collectively as the Ewing sarcoma family of tumors (ESFT or sometimes just EFT). It's the second most common bone cancer in children, but it's also relatively uncommon. It accounts for only 1% of all childhood cancers.  Claire and her family now face a very long and difficult journey. Her sisters, Maeve (age 6) and Sarah (age 2); and Claire's twin brother, Declan, are too young to grasp the magnitude of the situation but they know that their sister is sick and the doctors and nurses are going to make her better. The treatment regiment calls for extended rounds of chemotherapy that could possibly last into the summer months, followed by surgery to remove the tumor, and finally radiation.

To find out more about Claire and how you can contribute to the card outreach, please visit Madison's website:   "I Feel the Love" Project.

Here is what the Design Team created for Miss Claire:


Cricut cartridge used:  Mickey & Friends



Cricut cartridges used:  Create-A-Critter 2 and Plantin SchoolBook



Cricut cartridge used:  Create-A-Critter



Cricut cartridge used:  Carousel (Lite)




Cricut cartridge used:  Teddy Bear Parade



Cricut cartridges used:  Hello Kitty Greetings and "Just Because" Cards
