Cards for Little Hearts Card Drive & Blog Hop!

Children are one third of our population and all of our future.
~Select Panel for the Promotion of Child Health, 1981

Good morning!
Today is a busy day for posting here on my blog but I think this one is the most important of all as today we kick off a special blog hop to help gather cards for the Cards for Little Hearts Card Drive.


The purpose of Cards for Little Hearts is to collect handmade cards for the Heart Center staff at Nationwide Children’s Hospital to distribute to children with congenital heart disease and help lift their spirit while they are hospitalized and need major heart surgery or are having a particularly tough time.

This card drive is opens to both U.S. and International participants. Anyone is welcome to help make the cards, including children, grandchildren and students.

The current 2017 card drive runs from July 1st - August 25th with a Winter Wishes or Holiday Wishes theme.

If you are interested in participating in the card drive, more information about the card requirements and sponsors can be found HERE on Christina's Blog "Christina Hor Designs"

Here is one of the cards I made for the drive

How sweet is this reindeer, with his holiday message in hand. I'm glad to see this blog hop, as a way of spreading the word, and hopefully, getting more cards coming in for the card drive to be a success.

Cara! I've been waiting to comment on this adorable reindeer! You know when I asked you where I can purchase it, I meant it and I did find it on the Sizzix's site the same week! Along with a few other items. But I'll save it until November to do with the kiddos and see if we can make him look as cute as your! LOVE this little guy!

Cara, I realized I say these two words to you a lot, but I'll say it again...THANK YOU! Truly, thank you so much Cara for all the help you have given me...from big advise about sponsorship to the littlest thing like proof-reading my poor English grammar. I felt like a lost child and you just reach out your hands and gentle guide me back in the right direction. So thank you dear Cara. May you have a very happy Thursday. Hugs.
