Here is some info about Kate:
About 6 weeks ago the life of the McRae family changed forever when their precious 5 year old daughter, Kate, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. Dad (Aaron) is a pastor in Arizona and he and his wife, Holly have two other children, Will and Olivia. Of course this is devastating for the whole family and many are praying for them. (Go to http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/mcraekate to learn more about this family and their struggle). Kate has a rough road ahead of her for quite awhile. When you hear their story you will want to do anything you can to help.
And one thing we can do to help is to send cards to Kate and her family to encourage them, give them strength, and let them know how many people are thinking about and praying for them.
Cards can be for any member of Kate's family:
- Kate (age 5) - The sweet girl who is battling cancer.
- Little brother Will.
- Bigger sister Olivia.
- Mom and Dad, Aaron and Holly.
Cards can be anything cheery, encouraging, supportive, etc. (This family is a family of God, so for all you Christians out there, feel free to share messages of Faith.) Anyone can send a card - even your children!
Please write a message in the card and sign your name and where you are from. On the card envelope, please write the name of who the card is for (Kate, Will, Olivia, Aaron and/or Kate). Also, please don't seal the envelope, as Kate's parents might want to preview cards before the kids see them.
With your cards, please include a piece of paper with your name, address, email address and number of cards.
The cards should be sent to:
Card Drive for Kate
PO Box 428612
Cincinnati, Ohio 45242
Please send the cards to arrive by October 1.

The first card was for a tag challenge. We had to use a tag somewhere on our card. I took a piece of pattern paper and attached it as a pocket to a white card stamped with "happy birthday". The tag was stamped using a Hero Arts "Happy Birthday" stamp and silver ink.
The last challenge was to use a digi stamp of your choice somewhere on a card. I don't know where I found the digi stamp, it was in my collection of saved downloads. The outside of the card is using the watermelon die cut from Sizzix.

Just recently I order from Shimmerz and wondered why my order was taking a little longer than normal. They are a family run business and I thought perhaps they went on vacation or someone was sick, but just wanted to double check. Not only did they respond to me within minutes of my inquiry, they discovered it was a problem with PayPal; they never received my order or payment. Well as quickly as that a new order was placed and I received a personal e-mail from the owner Stacey saying they were expiditing my order.
Not only do they have awesome products, but they also have awesome service for their customers. So the next time you receive excellent service from someone, let them know. Or even better, let their manager know how much you appreciate them.
