Cards for Max!

On Facebook This morning, I recieved an event invite to make a card for “Mighty” Max Low of Neola, Ia., Who began battling leukemia shortly after he started kindergarten in 2004.

Today he’s a 12-year-old sixth grader, still battling away at Children’s Hospital; Medical Center in Omaha. And he’s probably receiving more get well cards on a daily basis than anybody else on the planet. Heres the whole story.

When a friend suggested "Wouldn't it be cool to get a million cards in the mail" Max agreed and word of mouth spread and spread...

I wanted to do something cooler than just a regular card, and went back to my old favorites on etsy to find a pop up card shop i had favorited months ago - Easy Cut Pop Up. Heres my card for Max! sending today with some of my True Star Magazines, I used my own textured papers, and added a couple little extras. (bird, bunny, and words)







Heres the shops website also EASY CUT POP UP
