Tribute to an Angel

Welcome to Funky Cards

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the news this morning that sweet Trin is now an angel in heaven.  We rejoice in the fact that Trin is no longer suffering, but we share in the pain that her family is going through as they grieve the loss of their daughter, sister, and niece.   

It was just yesterday that we finished packing and sending out over 150 Christmas cards in Trin's honor to the children who will be spending Christmas in the very hospital that had provided so much wonderful care to this sweet angel.  It is really special for Trin's family to know that there will be so many kids receiving cards in Trin's honor from people across our nation and Canada this holiday season.  A very big thank you to each and every one of you who participated this month.  You are a blessing to many.

The following information was posted on Trin's Facebook page:

My Sweet Angel went to home to be with the Lord..fly high sweet angel..Mommy loves you forever and always!!

Even in heaven my sweet angel is helping those on Earth... my amazing daughter has donated her corneas so that others may see!

Thank you God for giving me this precious gift if only for a little while.

Thank you again for being the best and most selfless followers.

Kids are fabulous crafters!!

Welcome to Funky Cards

Recently I returned to the classroom to make a couple of cards with a few students.  I must say that this was so much fun!  The students had a wonderful time and were so excited that their cards were going to be making a plane ride from California to Alabama where they will find their way to Flower's Hospital in time to greet the children who will be spending their time there for the holidays.

I think they did a fabulous job putting together the embellishments that were given to them to create these adorable cards!!!  They also each wrote a special message on the inside.  Thank you so much kids!  You were awesome!!

This is the card I showed them as an example, and below are the cards that they created!!

If you would like to join us this month and make cards for the children who will be spending Christmas in the hospital, click HERE for all the details.  Thank you so much.  Each card represents a selfless act and puts another smile on a child's face!!  We appreciate you all so much.

Have a fabulous day.
