Story behind my thank you card

My son Michael LOVES Big Nate, Big Nate is a book series which Michael is totally addicted to , he reads these books constantly, at least 3 times a day!  Michael was searching Big Nate in Google and found Deviant Art  where art and hobbies are shared. He seen a Big Nate plush and fell in love instantly and had to have it yesterday.I got in contact with the designer Charlene and had asked if she could we could buy one considering Big Nate plushes are not made by any company. Due to it being a trademark item Charlene had decided against it but INSTEAD donated one to Michael for the cause she read about in my earlier posts , Michael's surgery!!!!!  We were beyond excited and kept in contact with Charlene whom also was excited. I wanted to thank Charlene so I made her a thank you card.

OMG...reading about Michael and the Big Nate plush, just brought a tear to my eyes. I am so glad, that there are still amazingly generous people put there in the world, that are willing to put a smile on a child's face. I know Charlene would have sent it regardless of Michael's situation too. Your thank you card using Wooley is AMAZING cute and I know she (Charlene) will love it!!! Thank you for spreading the "Scribbles" love and for sending followers to us, you are just outstanding and I can't thank you enough for the love and support and I know I am speaking for Sandy as well.

Have an amazing day.
Hugs,
Calypso
