So Now on to today’s projects. As I stated before, Wednesday’s challenge was extra special here. We are sharing some crafty love and encouraging everyone to do the same. Each month Madison picks a recipient for her I Feel The Love Project and so she chose the super cute and very courageous Emily. Then one of our Senior Designers shared about a friend of hers daughter Patty who is a spunky and beautiful teenager who is battling a rare form of cancer. So we wanted to share with these two girls!  Here are a couple of cards Melin made for them.
