You Got This


My youngest son (14 year old Christian) runs on a Cross Country team. One of his teammates, younger than him, had been sick for a few weeks and found out a few weeks ago why. He has leukemia. He is 9 years old, has two younger siblings and his parents are expecting their fourth kid, due this month. As a mom, I can’t even imagine. I have been praying for him and his family nonstop.

They are doing a meal train for the family- here’s the link:

I wanted to make him a card that would be from Christian. I started with a different stamp set and realized it was just not right (I’ll show that card in a few days). Even though he is 9, I know from experience that boys are a little “cooler” starting around that age.

Our XC team colors are green and black, so I wanted to use that. I stamped the spiral twice- once in Granny Apple Green, rotated the paper 180°, and then in Soft Sea Foam. Use the Stamparatus for this!

I also stamped the spiral on the envelope using Soft Sea Foam.

I stamped two sentiments from the stamp set Through it Together. I used two different die cuts from Tasteful Labels.
