                                    Big THANKS and HUGS to Kelly for organizing the hop!

This drive is quite near and dear to my heart. I love it! I love creating cards in the hope that they will bring a smile to some kids faces. I love that I can send a tiny piece of love all wrapped up in an envelope for a few pennies. So, that said, if 1 card is good, 4 are even better. Here are a few I am sending along on this round.


Supplies: White card stock, Hero Arts Friend definition stamp inked with fired brick Distress ink by Ranger, Girl, frog and fly stamps: Basic Grey colored with Prismacolor pencils, patterned paper MME Home collection, sentiment Hero Arts

Supplies:Bear die cut from Create a Critter cartridge from Provo Craft, Blue card stock DCWV Citrus collection embossed with tiny mosaic folder by Cuttlebug, patterned paper Prima Marketing Rock Out Bro collection, Prima flower with custom brad made with the i- top, sentiment on brad by Hero Arts, friends forever stamp by Technique Tuesday .

  
Admittedly, this card looks like it is having a bad hair day..... I should have taken a bit more care in primping but I still like it's wild and crazy way!
Supplies: Bazzil card stock, stamp: Me & My Big Ideas, copic markers, background stamp Technique Tuesday, sentiment Hero Arts, eyelets, ribbon: Offray


I  think this one is my favorite. It is a variation of a card I did at Valley Forge with Technique Tuesday.

Supplies: Bazzill card stock, patterned strips white card stock inked with Ranger Distress Inks in wild honey, dried marigold and crushed olive, what's hiding under the bed and monster stamps by Recollections, hounds tooth stamp by Technique Tuesday stamped with rich cocoa ink by Memento, copic markers.
