Christmas In July Card #5, and a special request

Hello!  This week has been very busy, and also very difficult.  A 17 year-old young man was shot during the first day of school by another student at a local high school.  Daniel is in critical condition at University of Maryland Shock Trauma.  Please keep him in your prayers.  I do not know this young man personally, but my heart goes out to him and his family.  The students are showing their support for Daniel with prayer services at nearby churches and a campaign on Facebook to ask Lady Gaga (his favorite) to visit him.  Here is a You Tube video they posted: 

Thank you for allowing me to share this with you.  Now, onto the 5th and final card from my Christmas In July class.  This card was fun to do, and the ladies loved it!  I hope you do, too.

  1. Sorry to hear about this shooting and my best wishes for Daniel's recovery. Such a trauma for everyone involved. Your #5 card is awesome Nancy. I love the DSP choice and your mittens are so cute! Thanks for the reminder about the Chock Full of Cheer Stamp coordinating with the Mitten Builder Punch.
