Fishbowl shape card

I'm entering this card in the Scrappy Moms Create a Critter challenge and will be sending this card to Aiden. He's a two year old diagnosed with T Cell Leukemia. Scroll down to read his story and get involved in bringing him smiles.

I used Create a Critter (fish) and Animal Kingdom(fishbowl) for this card.
I created the fishbowl shape card with window on my Gypsy.

Sentiment: Pink by Design Faith stamp set

White Gel pen

Diamond Stickles

Fiskars Texture plate
Tumbled glass Distress Ink

Tanya from Scrappin KY Momma needs help from all of us crafters. She knows this little boy and his family and would like to send him cards. Here's his story...

Aidan is a sweet lil 2 year old, who was recently diagnosed with T Cell Leukemia. On Wednesday, he had a port installed in his chest, spinal tap, bone marrow, and chemo in his spine. He did GREAT! This lil guy is such a trooper. His parents have accepted that their BABY has Leukemia.. NOT the easiest thing to accept, but their faith in God, and their support system, have kept them going. T-Cell Leukemia has a high cure rate although chemo will be continued for quite a while. Lil Aidan LOVES mail, like any 2 year old does. So....
Let's get our crafting supplies out, and send this lil guy some LOVE!!! Pass this on to all your crafty friends. I think we can all take a couple minutes, and make something special for him, that will bring LOTS of smiles, and he can look at over and over. We all know how laughing and smiling can be good for the soul. Let's give him this much for him to enjoy while he's battling this horrible disease. I have no doubt in my mind, that God can perform a miracle in this beautiful child. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.Lets all come together and put Lots of BIG Smiles on Aidan's and his parents faces.

Please mail your cards to:
