"Bunches of Love" for Sweet Alana - Won't You Please Kokua (help)?

Hello, hello peeps.   Are you ready for the LONG weekend?  I sure am.  
While blog hopping a few days ago, I hopped onto Danni's blog and read about precious Alana.  Today, I'd like to share this card that I made for her as she was recently diagnosed with leukemia.   This sweet child is only 9 years old and I hope this card will put a big smile on her face and brighten her day.  Won't you please make a card for her too?  Please hop onto Donalda's blog for the deets.
For this card I inked up Mimi from the "Mimi's Many Love" set by Penny Black with Copics.  Also used DPs from my stash, Labels Eleven by Spellbinder, sun die by Hero Arts, cloud dies by Memory Box, sentiment from Popcorn the Bear "Bunches of Love" set by Crafter's Companion, tag die by Spellbinders, edge punch RAK from my blog friend Dora, grass die by Cuttlebug, and ribbon buttons with shank removed.

"Happy Hellos" CAS Card

Happy Hellos Peeps!  Hope you're all enjoying your weekend crafting.   On Friday, I took a few hours of vacation time and we took a drive to Kona to shop at Costco.   Can you imagine, we need to drive about 100 miles to the one and only Costco on this island.   I sure hope they open one in Hilo in my lifetime.   However, it was a beautiful sunshiny day and we enjoyed the ride.  A little bit like playing tourist.  LOL.
Today, I want to share this CAS card featuring one of the images from the Pixie Dust Studio digi set that I recently won in their blog hop.  I chose the set called "Pixie's Favorite Things."  Isn't she a doll, a real cutie?   I inked her up with Copics leaving a teeny-tiny part white on the cherries in hair to give them some "reflection" from the light.  Also used my new tag die by Sizzix, border and leaf punches by EK, DP from my evergrowning stash, ribbon and flower by Offray, and a button with carpet thread tied to it.
 Here's a close-up of the flower.

Happy Takeo

Today's card is special because this cutie, Takeo by Sister Stamps has the same name as my grandpa.  I inked him up with Copics and created a little scene with clouds using my die from Memory Box, and grass from Martha Stewart.   I added some Stickles on the balloons to give it some sparkle.  For dimension, I cut the string for the balloons from the image and added embroidery thread.  Also, a little tag stamp by Hero Arts with bakers twine.   Other supplies:  Spellbinder dies, tree die by Memory Box, and washi paper.  Of course, I had to add some stitches.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
