Sock Monkey Card for the Hug a Heart Card Drive

Hello Blogging Friends,

Today I have this cute Sock Monkey card to share with you that I made for the Hug a Heart Card Drive.

You can read all about this card drive for children in the Cardiac Unit on Christina Hor's Blog

Assorted papers from my stash
Copic markers
Brown ink
Black ink

For this card I started out with white card stock for the base of the card, then I took the gingham paper, inked the edges with brown ink and added it to the card.  I stamped the Cats Pajamas Sock It To Me Sock Monkey with black ink onto some white paper.  I colored the Sock Monkey with Copic markers, fussy cut him out and then added him to the card after tucking a red heart under his one arm.  I took some brown ink and stamped HUGS from the same stamp set onto the card.  I cut out some red paper with the Cats Pajama Heart Swirl die and added that to the top of the card.  This Sock Monkey makes me smile!

We will have a Hug a Heart Blog Hop on February 1st!!

So mark you calendars for February 1st to see some of the wonderful card that are being made for this cause by some awesome and talented Designers.

I do hope you will join me in making some cards and by sharing the message!  There is still plenty of time!  The cards have to make it to Christina by 2/14/17!

Please help share with others about Hug a Heart Card Drive and brighten a heart patient's day this February's Heart Month by displaying the Hug a Heart Card Drive Banner below on your blogs sidebar as well as on social media!  Please use hashtag  #hugaheartcarddrive  when sharing on social media.
