Jonah

For tonight I will be playing along with The Paper Craft Crew. This card has a very special recipient, a little boy named Jonah. More about that later. Here is my card for tonight, enjoy.

Soft blue plaid and white work well with the stronger khaki color.
A color that is also represented in the plaid pattern.
A combination of sentiments creates this one sentiment.
It says:
'Thinking of you & sweet baby Jonah'
Detail showing all the textural details. Very similar to the sketch.
The name 'Jonah' is in place of the banner.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 193

As I probably mentioned before our school has an amazing community of parents, teachers, and staff that has developed a camaraderie that is unique and special. Some of our parents need an extra boost of support. This is where Jonah comes in. A baby boy, who's siblings go to the school, is very sick and needs prayer.  I jumped at the chance when I was approached to make a card for the family. I wanted to make one with heartfelt meaning, conveying the message that our school is praying and caring for this family. 

Since I know nothing about what baby Jonah is enduring, I am going to take this right from their GoFundMe page: 
Jonah is a baby boy who was born at 37 weeks on April 26th 2016 weighing in at 3 lbs 12 oz. He was diagnosed with Trisomy 18, also known as Edwards' Syndrome, a very rare condition that causes severe developmental delays due to an extra chromosome 18. This disease can affect many parts of the body, with Jonah it's mainly his heart.

The family needs prayers for this special little guy.
Everyone who is reading this please take a moment and pray.
I'll wait.
I truly believe in the power of prayer and the energy it has to heal and give us wisdom from the Universe. I know some prayers will be said around the world and for that, I thank you.

All the best,
Shawna

Hi Shawna, I absolutely adore this card. I can't wait to read more about Jonah tomorrow. The blue and brown are such great boy colors. The ampersand is awesome. You totally rocked the sketch and all the details finish the card off perfectly. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew. ~Pam, DT
