For Alex

Dear Ones~
It's a lazy, snow-y Saturday, a perfect day to play in my craft room. Hubby is putting up sliced apples in the freezer. He told me he wanted to do it himself - well, okay then!!!! I didn't argue with him too much....haha!!

I am sending this card off to a young man who will be turning 13 on November 27th, Alex LeFevre. Alex is disabled, and here is what his mom posted on Facebook:

Facebook friends, I have a favor to ask. Alex is turning 13 this year. In years past, he has had lots of friends to a big birthday party....and he loved it. At 13, well, other kids 'grow out' of that sort of thing....and even if we did i...t, the party stuff, while still appropriate for Alex, would not really be fun for his fellow 13 year olds. Alas, I am not trying to be depressing, and he will still have a party BUT, and here is where you could come in... could you send him a card on his birthday? In it, can you put WHERE you are located so we can pin it on a map and get in a little geography at the same time (hehe!) Maybe even a fun fact about your town or state. His birthday is November 27, so there is lots of time! Thank you tons!

Perhaps you would like to bring a smile to this young man's face too!  Thanks so much!

Here's my card:
I have a die of my beautiful Mitten, so since Alex's mom wanted us to include where we live, I thought it was a great opportunity to use the die. I also thought that any boy of 13 likes robots, so I went with that theme. Love these papers, they are so much fun!!!

Here are the ingredients:
GKD Blue Raspberry and Red Lipstick Card Stock
Best Creations Robot Patterned Paper
QuicKutz Michigan Die
PTI Circle Scribbles Die
Judy Dots
Greeting is Computer Generated

You still have time to send a card to this sweet young man. Hope you will consider doing so!!! Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments. And stay warm, my friends!!
