1,600 Birthday Cards for Jacob Mockbee

Giving cards is what we do as paper crafters and I love it!  I heard about this special story through my friend and fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Arizona.  Parents of Jacob Mockbee are hoping to collect 1,600 cards for Jacob's 16th birthday this Sunday, June 16th.  Doctors told them he wouldn't live past a year, and here he is 16 years later!  To celebrate, we're sending him birthday cards, his wish for his birthday is to get 1,600 cards.  Please feel free to participate and send him a card.  I know Jacob and the family will love it!

Here's the address to send cards to:
Jacob Mockbee
8987 E. Tanque Verde #309-104
Tucson, AZ  85749-9399

Stories like this always make me cry and want to help.  Miracles happen all the time and it's special to be able to be a part of making someone's dream come true!  Here's the card I created for Jacob's 16th Birthday and will pop this in the mail ASAP!  I used the Mojo Monday 297 Sketch and it was the perfect inspiration to jump start my crafting!

Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • Paper Snips!  Essential for trimming out both pairs of spectacles!  After stamping them in Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit, I quickly trimmed them out and adhered them with Stampin' Dimensionals!
  • The Happy Birthday Photopolymer stamp is the image that comes in the Dolled-Up Birthday card kit!  It coordinates perfectly with the Spec-Tacular stamp.

  • My Scallop border is from the Petite Curly Label Punch!  I punched several out of the Summer Starfruit card stock, cut them in half and adhered them to the bottom of the Midnight Muse card stock!

Love sunglasses and spectacles!?!  Perfect for summer, this Spec-Tacular single stamp by Stampin' Up! is certainly a must have!  Available through July 31st in my online store, its a steal of a deal at $7.95.  Clear-Mount only.  Item number to add to your shopping cart:  132673
