Teapot Tuesday - Gone fishin' in W. Virginia

It's difficult to be glib about a child with cancer, so I'll just let you read the destination of this week's cards in Cindy's words:


This week's destination is Buckhannon, West Virginia. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Colton. Colton Dean is a 10 year old boy who has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, which is a form of bone cancer. He is a 5th grader at Union Elementary School. Colton's teachers and fellow classmates have made it their mission to get lots of cards mailed to Colton at the school to support him and brighten his days.

Here are the things that Colton loves:

He loves fishing, four-wheelers, nerf guns, The Steelers, WVU (West Virginia University), video games, cashews, sunflower seeds and pineapple juice!

Here is another fun tidbit ~ Colton was recently asked to be the Grand Parade Marshall for the Strawberry Festival parade in his home town which will be held shortly! A great honor!! So, feel free to put a strawberry on your card ~ Colton will know what that is all about! Ha!

Here is Colton's Address:

Colton Dean
c/o Union Elementary School
20 Heavner Grove Road
Buckhannon, WV 26201

Here's my card for Colton using the free digi designed by Leigh at Happileigh Scrappin' just for the challenge.   I put his name on the boat.  :-)  You can pop on over and pick up the digi if you'd like to send Colton a card.

I printed the digi twice, so I could cut out the blue fish, the strawberry and the water and pop them on dimensionals. The main image panel is also popped up.  I covered them with Crystal Effects then sprinkled some glitter on the water before the CE dried.  Love the sparkle it gave the water!
