Phighting for a Cure

Welcome to the Phun 4 Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness blog hop, hopefully you came here via the gorgeous Lisa’s blog, if not and you are just passing by my blog, please see the blog hop list below.  I was honoured to be asked to be part of this hop and to be able to make a card that will go to someone living with this disease.  My card features an awesome image, PHun Butterfly, that Betty of Simply B Stamps drew especially for the occasion.

Did you know, while there are now 11 FDA approved medicines to treat pulmonary hypertension, zero are approved for use in children with PH.  You can also find out more information about PH from the Pulmonary Hypertension Association.

Now Betty isn’t the only artist to have generously provided her support, Tamara of the Stamping Chef has also drawn an image, Pucker Up, and there will be another blog hop tomorrow starting at the Stamping Chef featuring it.  You too can show your support by making a card with one or both of these beautiful images.  Instructions for getting the image is below, you will also need the answer to this question “How many treatments are FDA approved for children with PH?"

There’s also a challenge going on, link up your project here by Saturday 16 November (the US 16th) to be in the running for a Teresa Collins Stamp Maker.  Winners will be announced at the Paper Moments blog on Saturday 23 November.  Remember to use periwinkle on your card.

Now head on over to the delightful Veronica’s blog and don’t forget to leave some love at all the blogs as there will be a prize for one lucky person drawn by
