Cards For Little Hearts - Card Drive for Children's Hospital

On your mark...
Get set...

It's officially here!
The kick off date for 
card drive from July 1 thru August 25!

All the details are found here for card guidelines and fabulous prizes.

Not only will your cards cheer the heart of a hospitalized pediatric cardiac patient (ages 0 thru 19),

but you'll have chances at winning several great prizes donated by a number of sponsors.

I will be having candy here on my blog as well,
kindly donated by Bugaboo Designs accompanied by fun, new sentiments, 
during our blog hop beginning August 1!
The link to my blog candy is Snowman Snowflake Digi Set.
The card drive is from July 1st thru August 25th so get ready to make those cards.

Please be sure to read all the guidelines before sweetly creating for little children!

My blog candy will be this darling Snowman Set by Bugaboo Designs:

Here are two cards I'll be sending, just to give you an idea of how simple these thoughtful gestures can be:

Precolored snowman with additional shading and coloring with pastel chalks.
Happiness is a heartfelt hug and time spent with your best friend:

Since we are using A2 size cards (that was my biggest challenge) with very little embellishing, I found it a perfect time to use paper scraps in my layering.

Thanks for doing what you can, and remember, even if you cannot send a card, I hope you will still hop with us on August 1 and become eligible for prizes.

Challenges I'd like to play in please:

  1. My time to Craft #349 Christmas in July (7/14)
  2. The Merry Christmas Challenge (June 30) Snowmen 7/4
  3. Winter Wonderland Challenge (June 23) Snowmen 7/5
  4. Christmas at Sweet Stampin' (June) Anything Christmas 7/12
  5. Crafting by Designs (June) Anything Christmas 7/5
  6. The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #9 Anything Christmas 7/10
PS - I'm embarrassed to say this, but I apparently saved "over" my original posting, and the links to the challenge blogs were lost. If you are visiting from one of those challenges, if it is not too much trouble, will you please say so in your comment so I can relink? I'm so embarrassed, and tried to find all of the challenges I originally submitted to.

Snowman Hugs,

Just popped back to say thanks for sharing your beautiful cards at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'...lovely to see you here!

Ann Greenspan's Crafts said...

You are so thoughtful to be doing all this for the children, and I know they will appreciate it. Your snowmen are adorable. I love the white frame you put around each one. I am grateful the world has people like you in it.

Conniecrafter said...

Snowman are my favorite and these are just too cute, I totally love the little dog with it too!
You sure chose some lovely framing with those dies!

Nana Connie said...

I'm working on a few more cards for this myself, and you'll be seeing them throughout the month. I adore your little snowman, Donna, and your die choices show him off beautifully! I love using scraps and your are perfect for the seasonal color combo. Well done, my friend. :-D

Karen said...

Sweet friend, of course this post brought a tear to my eyes... and my heart. These cards will deliver healing love far more potent than anything else could. I adore this image and your stunning cards showcasing it. This cause is so beautiful. I hope those who are unsure if they will participate do not underestimate the power of this gesture. One of the little cancer warriors I created for kept them stashed right by her bed to keep away the monsters at night... and not the typical monsters healthy kids get ideas about. I love that you are doing this once again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful heart with a world in dire need.

Hugs and blessings,

Valerija said...

Just stunning, love them both!

Becky said...

Two great cards. I love that die cut frame.

Pia S said...

Although you usually decorate your cards lots more with glitter and stash I find these card so sweet and decorative. And it's fascinating to see what a difference colors make, these cards are similar and yet so different. A2 is my preferred card size, and I love making Christmas cards, so will try and make a few for this good cause.

Carol S. said...

Brilliant card and love the snowman. Thanks for joining us at Winter Wonderland and hope you join us again. Carol S. DT
