Life is Sweet...

This post will be up top for about 2 weeks.  As some of you know I have a rare connective tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (my original post about it).  February 29th is World Rare Disease Day.  Like the Pink Ribbon is to Breast Cancer, the Zebra is to EDS.  I'm asking my Crafty Friends to join in and help raise awareness for my rare condition by wearing Zebra Print on February 29th.  It could be anything, a bracelet, shirt, ribbon.
To celebrate I have a little set from MFT called My Little Firecracker I'm giving away.  When I won Jen del Muro's SFYTT Christmas Give-a-Way I accidentally got this lil' gal again with the gift voucher MFT so generously donated...I guess I really liked her=) 

Here's how it will work...
If you are already a follower your name will go into the drawing twice. 
If you are not a follower, become one and your name will go in twice.
Leave a comment, your name goes in once (you can leave one comment a day).
If you make and send me a card with a Zebra on it or any type of Zebra print, your name will go in five times (I have a contact tab for my addy, just put Zebra in the subject line). 
Deadline to enter is 11:59 PM MST on March 3rd.  I will draw the winning name on March 4th. onto my card=) I made this card for this week's MFTWSC59. I stamped Sweet Greetings in Memento Ink on Neenah, coloring with Copics. I used Flower Soft for her cotton candy. Real Red, Taken with Teal, Blushing Bride, and EP Happy Days paper, Bottle Cap, Clear Epoxy Domes, SU Phot Corner Punch.

My color map=)

If you're still with me, sorry for the long winded post!
Thank-you for stopping by, have a wonderful week!

  9. As you can tell, I'm a little behind in my blogsurfing. Just wanted to stop in to tell you that your post moved me. Seems like our blog friends grow to be a part of our lives and yet there is so much we don't know about them. Thank you for sharing a little piece of you. I've missed February 29th but the next time I pull out Zebra print I shall be thinking of you!
