A Card for Chad

I had the greatest weekend...I got to spend most of Sunday in the Craft room making cards!! Yay! 

Earlier this month, our area had a real tragedy happen. An accident about 30 miles from where I live killed 3 people and left 8 injured.  An elderly man driving a pickup truck crossed the center line and hit a van with high school basketball boys in it. Both coaches in the van were killed as well as the elderly man.  There are still two of the boys that are in the hospital and one, Chad Christensen, is in a rehab hospital.  The local paper/radio as well as my friend, Debbie Fisher is asking for a card shower for Chad.  Debbie is a cousin of Chad's father.  Even though I don't know Chad or his family, this accident has touched my heart as well as many others.  The outpouring of love and care has been tremendous.  This is when it is truly great to live in a small town. 

This is the card I made for Chad:

I used the SU! stamp set "Wanted".  Love this set for guy cards!  The sentiments are also a SU! stamp set that I purchased online from someone cleaning out their craftroom.

Chad is improving every day and is starting to walk and talk with the help of rehab.

I loved this saying by Abraham Lincoln because Chad's journey is truly one day at a time.  ESPN reporter Elizabeth Merrill wrote a wonderful article about what has happened. You can read HERE.

I got this card idea from Chat W. from Me, My Stamps & I.  She is very talented!

Thanks for stopping by and I will have more cards to share during the week!

Thank you so much!!!! I know Chad and the family will appreciate this. Scott actually got to go home last week. So now we need to "pray" Chad home.
