Buy For Guy Campaign



Hello crafty friends,
I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday (Sabbath) rest. Maybe you’re even able to get some crafty time in! Today I am sharing a card I created with a special purpose. A few weeks ago I was contacted by a gal who had participated in the 25 Days of Christmas event I had last year. She shared that a friend of hers and fellow artist was in a bad situation. He fought cancer and now has recently been diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease stemming from his cancer. To make matters worse, he was laid off his job and health insurance and day to day expenses are putting him in a terrible bind. You can read about this gentleman’s (Guy Condron) condition on his blog.

Well Guy created some digi stamps to sell to help him during this health crisis and some gals were give the opportunity to create something with one of his digi sets. So in true Melin form….I am a day late and a dollar short, but still wanted to honor my commitment to help spread the word.
Stinky Digi Set
You can purchase his cute little digi’s at his Etsy shop HERE. If you don’t have a need for any digi’s, please consider sending him a donation. You can visit his blog and on the top right column you will see a donate button. Don’t let the message above the button fool you as he mentions being all clear. This is from the cancer. His new health crisis is described in his most current blog posts. Visit and donate HERE
I know many folks are going through some devastating circumstances in their lives. With the economy being sluggish and so much uncertainty, there are a lot of really tough things happening to a lot of people. I know from personal experience, that God is truly in control and when situations are just beyond anything we can imagine, He really is there.
So here is the card I created with Guy’s “Stinky”
DCWV-Little-Mister-Stack-Card-480

I used one of the cute “Stinky’s” from the set and colored him with my Copics
I framed him in the buttons frame that is part of the button love set from PCW.
