Thinking of Henry...and a JUGS challenge!

It's the weekend!  WHEW!

I can hardly believe that it was a week ago already that we hosted the big party for the kids, which seemed to be a great success, by the way.  I'm just thankful it is finished!  Here is a pic of my kiddos in their costumes

we forgot to put supergirl's boot covers on though -- oops.    Anyway -- just about a week ago, a family's life changed, forever.  I look at my girls and think I could never live without them, and someone I 'know' from online in the stamping community now has to face that reality.

I've been thinking about Sarah Anderson, and her family CONTINUOUSLY this week.  I've made a card for the family using the JUGS challenge sketch for this week, and thought I'd share it with you.

Here's this week's sketch, provided by the very talented Maria Levine

For the card, I wanted to use the digital image that Melissa from Pink Cat Studio designed to help raise money for trees to be planted in Henry's name.  More details on the fundraiser in this post.

The card size is 8.5"x5.5" as I REALLY wanted to use those cool chipboard letters, so I modified the card size to make it work ;).  The patterned paper is from Imaginsce...I love it - don't you, perfect for this card too - I think.

Be sure to check out all of the other DT members' blogs, as I'm SURE they've rocked this challenge from Maria.  I hope YOU get to play along too, and link your post to the JUGS challenge blog, also, if uploading to an online gallery, use the keyword JUGS6.
Don't forget -- if you want to get your hands on that adorable image, for a GREAT cause, be sure to head over to the Pink Cat Digi Store, and pick yours up today!

Next Saturday is MY turn to give you all a challenge...hope you'll come and play!!

Thanks for stopping by, have a GREAT weekend!

Tracey, so much in this post! First of all, your girls are just so adorable in their Halloween costumes! Such cuties! I know you could never live without them! Such tragic news for the Anderson family. And your card is truly adorable and such a tribute to little Henry. Great job!
