If you have time to stamp a card, or have a card already stamped, please think about sending it to a girl in Texas named Victoria. She has cancer. Her teacher set up a map and would love for her to get a card from each State.

Please help us to fill that map and lift Victorias spirit! It’s easy for us to whip out a card. Let’s do it for a great cause.

 You can read more about her story at Courtney’s blog. Courtney is also running a blog candy for everyone sending Victoria a card. I think that is a great idea. I think I will do the same. Let’s really shower this girl with cards!

Angel is offering card candy as well to stampers who send a card to Victoria.

Make a card for Victoria and upload it online, either your blog or SCS gallery. Add a link to your card to this post. Please also add your State, so we know how close we are getting to covering all 50 States.

The teacher would like all the cards to be send by the 27th of September, so I will  draw a winner on the 28th of September at 10:00 a.m. with Random.org.


The Fresh & Fun Freebies for this drawing include some of each pink May Arts ribbon I own as well as this Lizzie Anne Cling Stamp set. I thought it would be appropriate since Cancer is one long Journey!

Please add your Entry # to your post.

Thanks so much!!!

    I should have been sending a birthday card this week to a friend; unfortunately she died at the start of the month, after 10 years in remission and a 3-year struggle at the end. I am delighted to send this card to Victoria instead, with my best wishes and prayers for her recovery. It’s not girly – hope that’s OK. But even from Ireland it should arrive in time, it’s going tomorrow morning.

    Entry #33

  33. Here is the one I’m sending. I made 10 of these a long time ago and they just say “girl” to me. Glad I still have a couple. What a great cause – hope these cards cheer her up. I’m in Nevada.
