Hug a Heart Card Drive #6 2017

Today I did a few cards for the Hug a Heart Card Drive. Check that link for more details. These cards go to children who are Heart Center Patients at Nationwide Childrens Hospital. I was a bit late in getting started but since the drive is open until February 14th I thought  would do a few at least. All are the same basic design and made quite simple without any embellishments. But they still will hopefully bring some smiles to little children who have heart illnesses.

I used the cute little hedgehog image which is from the Penny Black Loads of Love set. I had used that for some Valentines so figured they would work for this type of card too. Now these cards were not to be Valentines but are to include hearts in the design. That is why I went with more non-traditional colors for my hearts. The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design set called Simply Said: Happy Daisy.

These are for children up to the age of 19 so I figured the little hedgehog would be appealing to boys or girls of all age groups.

The lavender gingham paper is from Gina K. Designs and the plaid papers are from My Favorite Things.

The inside of the cards are to be left plain with no sentiment added so that the nurses can write a hand written message to each child. One is also to include envelopes for each card. And if a darker card base is used they said to include a white or lighter colored liner so the message can be visible when it is hand written.

If you would like to join the drive you can send cards with envelopes to: Christina Hor, P.O. Box 517, Dublin, Ohio 43017. And be sure to include a note with your full name, mailing address and email address as there will be some prizes given as well. The card drive ends February 14. Mail the cards in a bubble wrap envelope or box so that they will arrive in great condition.

Well, thanks so much for coming to visit again. I love to see all of the comments you leave too!

God bless,

Verna, how did you find out about this? I wish I wasn't in such a pickle of trying to find a place to move. I'm glad you came up with such a neat idea for a card; the kids will love them. They are so precious and the word, 'Smile' is so appropriate for the receivers of the cards.

I heard about this from other bloggers who were sending cards and I felt it was a good cause to support.

May Rudolph Days Challenge

I made a little scene card using stamps for my May Rudolph Days Challenge entry. I had to add a bit of my own hand drawing to get the look ...
