A card for Maddy

You may remember last year that the Simon Says Stamp family asked for us all to make some cards for Maddy and her family.  Maddy is a young teen diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and was undergoing chemotherapy to battle it, after receiving a stem cell transplant from her sister Melanie.  Sadly, she has had a return of her disease, and we are asking for more cards for her.  You can find all the details HERE, with an address, a Caring Bridge blog link, and a picture of this valiant young woman.  Could you find it in your heart to send a card of encouragement to her?  Here's one that I made and sent last week:

Maddy's Card for blog

I know it's hard to think of what to say, but you could make it very simple, tell her she's in your thoughts, and then sign it and add your hometown.  Thanks so much!

EDITED TO ADD:  Heidi at Simon Says Stamp is offering up a $100.00 gift voucher to someone who sends Maddy a card.  Please visit the Simon Says Stamp blog for details.
