Dawn's Blog Hop

Many of you are familiar with the personal health struggles Dawn McVey has had over the past few years, and might have seen the recent news that she is now a proud small intestine transplant survivor. 
The community thought there would be no better way to honor Dawn and support her during her journey to recovery than to make a colorful, vibrant presentation of get well soon greetings. Dawn has always brought color and joy into our lives, and now we are able to do the same for her.
So here's to Dawn. May she find the strength on the hardest days. May she have peace through the recovery process. May she feel the love shining down on her from around the world.
If you would like to mail your creation to Dawn, you may use the address below.

You can go to Nicole Heady's Blog and see all of the amazing creations the card-making-community all over the world is making in honor of this sweet girl who has graced so many lives with her positive attitude, creativity, artwork and uplifting blog posts over the years. 
Now it is our turn to show this awesome lady how much we love her beautiful spirit and gorgeous creations.  I am going to make a few more cards over the next few days using one of Dawn's own designer stamp sets from"Raspberry Suite"  which is one of the prettiest floral sets in my collection called Peonies on Parade.

Along with my card, I am sending healing thoughts and many prayers for Dawn's recovery and speedy release from the hospital!


  1. This is such a pretty card! Love your color choices and your coloring, especially that watery-looking jar of water!

  2. Helen, this is now my favorite of your cards! The background color behind your gorgeously painted peonies and the lovely aqua shade you achieved on the jar are amazing! It looks like a photograph and Dawn will really be wowed by this work of art, my friend!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Beautiful and Dawn will love those vibrant colors!
