Cards for St Jude

Hi everyone!  I hope your having a great start to the new year!  We had a great weekend, Ariel has been feeling a lot better!  :>  I saw that Winter is having another Valentine card drive for the children at St Jude's hospital!  I think that this is a great card drive, and if my card puts a smile on a sick child's face it's worth it to me.  Apparently if my memory serves me correctly Valentine cards are the most popular cards to make after Christmas cards!  I don't have all that many Valentine stamps, but I do have a lot of kid stamps so I am going to get creative and use that! 



  Here are my cards, I made two of the same style in order to make more!



Products Used:  Pure Innocence digital stamp, Hero Arts sentiment stamp, The Twinery Twine (pink and red), Bo Bunny Double Dot paper, Ek Success border punch, Michaels heat button, doodle bug glitter, glossy accents, prisma and derwent pencils.

I thought that this pure innocence image was perfect with the heart!  I added pink doodle bug glitter to the heart, always so hard to photograph the glitter!  I used some bo bunny double dot pink paper which I've had forever and never used!  Inside I stamped Happy Valentines Day and will add my name! 

Winter is having this card drive until the end of January so I hope to be able to make more Valentines for the children!  I really hope that it's successful, and if we all send in a few it will be!
