Mason's Benefit Blog Hop

If you came from  Carley's blog http://www.craftycarley.com/ thank you for hopping with us. If you didn't you can start this hop from  Monica's blog www.monicascreativemadness.com and continue with the hop, please enter the challenge to win cool prizes!





Welcome to the Mason Benefit Blog Hop.  I'm so glad you are reading this.  Mason is a sweet 3 year old boy who has endured a lot of medical problems from such a young age.  

THIS is THE LINK (http://thesearsfam.com/masons-riddle) where you can read about young Mason's life.  It was recently updated by his mother, Dana.  

We are sending cards of encouragement to Mason and his family to uplift their spirits. And this time my card is a very simple design, I found the Spiderman (Mason's favorite!) graphic on Google and then cleaned the image background with PS, traced it then printed and cut it with my cameo. I wanted to use boy's colors and what else than Spiderman's color? It came out looking so cute!


This week's Challenge:

Create an Encouragement Card with the outside being for Mason and the inside for his parents that will be mailed to the family.   What's nice about THIS blog hop is that YOU, the reader, get to participate in this challenge as well! Everybody is welcome to enter, no matter what kind of cutting machine you have, even if you don't have one, you are welcome to enter!

We hope for Mason and his family to get a lot of cards and our blog followers that submit their entries to win some cool blog candy, yes!

  4. Ceci--this is so cute!! I gotta share a story with you though--that pose that your Spiderman is doing...I saw it in a catalog for something and mentioned it to my daughter, "Oh, look, Peter Parker LOVES me!" She asked, "WHAT are you talking about mom?" I pointed out that he was throwing the "I Love YOU" ASL sign, but it was kinda upside down. My daughter just started laughing and said, "Mom...he's throwing his web in that pose--he doesn't love you!"

    So NOW, whenever I see that particular pose, I'll just tell my daughter, "Peter Parker LOVES me!!" ;-)

    Your card is VERY cute!! TFS!
