Some cheer for Anthony

Some of you may have seen previous posts for the SplitCoastStampers Tuesday TeaPot party. Our cards may be sent to a recipient in need of cheer.  I have not been a regular participant of late, but this week I wanted to be sure to join in.  The cards go to Anthony, a 16 yer old undergoing his second heart surgery.  Side effects have caused him to lose his voice and have difficulty swallowing.  I have "known" his mother for some time through SCS. We sent cards a couple of years ago, and she said he has kept them in a memory box - I think all cardmakers are happy to know that their cards really do make an impact.   One of Anthony's interests is basketball.  I am pleased to have a chance to use some of the materials left from when our granddaughter played HS basketball! The basket is a Brad Buddy from Hot off the Press.  The sentiment is from QKR Stampede, and that backing strip is duct tape. 
Here is a link to the TeaPot party.  You are more than welcome to join us!

Such a great card! One of my boys is completely obsessed with basketball right now. The minute he walks in the door after school, he grabs the ball and heads out the back door to shoot some hoops. He's pretty positive he'll play in the pros when he grows up! :)
