Kards for Kids

Awhile back I was ask by Bela if I would like to join in making Kards for Kids. These are cards for Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. Bela hosts the card drives...and takes them to the hospital.

This is a very low stress commitment...as there is no set # of cards and they can be almost any type. The only requirement is that they do not contain embellishments such as buttons, brads, flowers as they may cause a choking hazard. Use paper products and stickles only. So they can be quite simple which is really very nice!!

You can check out the Kards for Kids site here. Right now Bela is having a call for Christmas Cards. I recently sent in some Halloween and Christmas cards. These are the Halloween cards.
Sorry about the last pic...a little blurry. As you can see many of the images are High Hopes. HH stamps are so perfect for this. I also used a cute little Magnolia witch. I really enjoyed making these cards and will share the Christmas with you in the near future.

I'm hoping to have time to visit soon...and possibly share a few photos of our recent holidays.

Have a Great Day Everyone!! and Thank You so much for visiting!!!!
