I read about a little 6yr old boy Luke on Lacey's blog and how on new years eve he had a seizure that left him needing to learn how to speak and walk again. Lacey was asking if anyone would send Luke cards and put on it where they came from so he could have cards from around the globe and of course cheer him along.
Having been in a position though now a few years ago where we had to coax, argue and plead with our son to do his physio(and now he's bigger I still have to nag) I can totally empathise with how hard and frustrating it will be for both Luke and his parents. My son didn't have the misfortune of being a happy healthy mobile child as he has cerebral palsy but still had all the anger and frustration that he couldn't do what his friends did and run around and definitely not have to do physio twice a day along with all the pain that does come with it despite what the physios say, it has to when you are teaching your body new positions and activities , it must be like anyone doing a strenuous workout when they aren't use to it and all the aches that brings , my son use to say and still does that sometimes it get to the point where it feels like torture. So how do you explain that it will be worth it to a 6 year old and them properly understand?
Well I couldn't not do a card for Luke and this digi freebie from Barbara at forgotten scraps seemed just perfect for a 6yr old boy. I couldn't decide on a sentiment so I used 2 both from LOTV as they both said things I know Luke will be doubting.
I used a technique for using up scraps on the craft barn and coloured my monster with my beloved Promarkers.So here's my card. I added a link to Lacey's post should you find it in your heart to send Luke a card too to cheer him along what will be a long hard road to a full recovery.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Forgotten scraps use one of their free digi's (if I'm not too late)
The craft barn-use one of the paper scraps techniques
Fab and funky-delight in your digi
Critter challenge-a circle and distressing(I distressed my paper scraps by tearing and spraying too)
