There's Nothing Worse

how cute is this purse charm?
There's nothing worse than the feeling of helplessness you get when your child is ill.  Imagine how much worse it is when it's not a cold or tummy ache but it's a condition you can't cure.  Juvenile Diabetes is one of those things. 

Today starts the 2011 Hop for a Cure.  If you'd like to hop along, find out more about it, play in a challenge, make a donation, win a prize, any of the those things you can start by going to the Crop Out Diabetes blog.  Or you can stop over at the Paper Pretties challenge blog to read more about it.  Heather has a challenge going with the very cool "Imagine" dragon stamp set as a prize.  Even more cool she's having a sale in the shop, you can get a whopping 20% off your order by using the discount code "CROPOUT", that's good till February 5.  Now would be the perfect time to stock up on some stamps, paper and ribbon.  You can find this fun and adorable "You're Maaaaaaarvelous" Sophia stamp there! Did you just imagine Billy Crystal?  But I digress....

don't forget the inside

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "You're Maaaaarvelous" Sophia
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - DCWV "Garden Party" stack dp; Georgia Pacific white cs for stamp
