Cards for Little Hearts Card Drive

Hello My Crafty Friends,

I am participating in the Card Drive for the children in the Heart Center at Nationwide Children's Hospital.  The Card Drive will run from July 1st to August 25th for Winter Themed cards to be distributed to the children in December.  No Merry Christmas, just Winter Wishes and Holiday Wishes.

I would love it if you would join me in making some cards for this wonderful cause!!

You can find out all the details about the Card Drive and the Important Guidelines for making the cards here

Here is today's card for the card drive:


Gina Marie Designs Pierced Fancy Nested die
Copic markers
Watercolor paper
Black ink
Faded Jeans distress ink
CTMH sentiment
White card stock

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card and then I added the dark blue paper to the card.  I took the Serendipity Stamps Penguin stamp and some black ink and stamped it onto watercolor paper and then I colored it in with copic makers.  I then took the Gina Marie Designs Pierced Fancy Nested die and cut out the penguins.  I mount the penguins onto the lighter blue paper and then cut that out with the next size up die and placed that onto the card.  I stamped the CTMH sentiment with black ink onto some white paper, I inked the edges with Faded Jeans distress ink and then added that to the card.

Please spread the word about this Card Drive and the Blog Hop on August 1st and maybe even get creative too!  There are prizes to be won and there will be a Blog Hop on August 1st.

Please use hashtag #cardsforlittleheartscarddrive when sharing on social media!! .

Link Fixed For Card Donation Receipt Form
By CHRISTINA HOR on Jul 11, 2017 12:00 am
Hello!  If you have been experiencing difficulty downloading the card donation receipt form for the card drive, the link is now fixed.  Dropbox, where I originally saved the form at, has recently made changes to how documents are being stored on their site.  Making it not as user-friendly as before.  So I moved the file to my Google Drive and the link should now work when you click on the download icon below or over on the Card Drive page.

I sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this may have cause you.  If for some reason you still having difficulty downloading the form, please e-mail me and I will get the form over to you.

Thank you so much for participating in Cards for Little Hearts Card Drive.  I deeply grateful for your help to bring smiles and cheer to the children this winter holiday season.  May you have a blessed day.  Take care.

I hope you are inspired to join in the card making!!

Thanks for stopping by!
