Card For Mia

I apologise in advance to anyone who doesn't use Twitter as I may sound like I've totally cracked in this post....lol.I use Twitter and I saw a Tweet (well it was a retweet actually) from Rick Allen the drummer from Def Leppard.It was for people to send cards to a little girl in the USA who has Crohn's Disease to cheer her up.How could I refuse the Thundergod's tweet,he's just amazing,an inspiration and from my favourite band of all time.Hence the blog title name. This is the organisation behind the plea if anyone is interested A FiveOh4 Uplifting.
So here's the card I made for Mia.It should be arriving in the USA any day now.I made a matching box for it too but haven't put the picture on.
I used the Gorjuss girl with the little star as children who have to endure lots of hospital time are just that...Little Stars.Although my little boy Louis has special needs he's healthy and never had to be in hospital thankfully.
