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 Square die
White card stock
Watercolor paper
Black ink
Red ink
Copic markers

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card. I took a piece of Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper pack, inked it with red ink and added that to the card base.  Next I stamped the Avery Elle Happy Howl-idays stamp with black ink onto some watercolor paper and then colored it in with Copic markers.  I used the coordinating Avery Elle Happy Howl-idays die and cut out the dog.  I took some white paper and cut it out with the Gina Marie Designs Fancy Square die and added that to the card and then I glued the dog on top of the square.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink onto some white paper and then cut it out with a fish tail and attached that to the card.  I took some red paper and cut it out with The Cat's Pajamas Heart Swirl die  and 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.

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!
