Got a request from Stacy (Twinshappy) and Jammer Town sister to say some prayers and if I had time make a card for a sick young man. You can see all the details and Stacy's card here.
It about broke my heart when I read her request. This little fella appeared to be fine, and then within 48 hours of noticing him not seeming quite right, he is being flown to another city, and beginning chemo. Who wouldn't want to pray and make a card for him.
Here is my Big Green Tractor for Bridger. Like Blooms I didn't have any tractor stamps so I went to plan two, my Silhouette Cameo. What a joy to be able to look through their store and purchase exactly what I needed for .99 and within minutes.
I couldn't resist using some Action Wobbles on the wheels - these are little springs that make the wheels wobble when you flick them with your finger. I think this will appeal to a four year old.
Inside it says: This Big Green Tractor and I are pulling for you. Lifting you up in my prayers.
He is gonna be in my prayers in a mighty way these next few weeks.

Sherry... GIRL you are AWESOME! Oh my goodness... This just made my heart swell girlie. DH even came in to see what everyone has created for Bridger. Love that you put his name on here. He is going to LOVE this! His parents are going to be so over whelemed with everyone's prayers and cards. Thank you for the bottom of my heart! I could hug you....

Awwww, Kush, your card and Jill's were how I found out to go to Stacy to find out about Bridger. Such an alarming shock to his parents that it happened so quickly.
Have no idea what a silhouette cameo is, but it sure did a fantastic job in helping you make this great card for Bridger!! Looks like an authentic John Deere too in the famous green and yellow colors! Love the tractor shaped card, knowing how it will thrill this little guy - keeping him in my prayers very specially too!
