Card drive and yummy candy!

Jennifer McGuire is once again hosting a card drive for ailing children and their families. Cards for Kids is an ongoing one, and cards can be sent not only at Christmas, but year round.

Visit her blog for the details and even if you're super busy, it's such a "feel good" effort to send even one card to brighten a young child's holiday or any day. Even a (gasp!) Hallmark card would be heartfelt and appreciated.

Our younger daughter was a cancer patient when she was 10 months old and I can empathize with families who spend the holidays in or out of the hospital with an ill child. Siblings are sometimes forgotten and a card would surely brighten up their day as well.

Thanks to some enabling from Alice, I've discovered Mo's digital images that are so easy to print and color. This Sophie card will be on its way to Jennifer this weekend.
Stamps: Mo's Digital Pencil, My Sentiments Exactly
Cardstock: Gorgeous red by Gina K (thank you, Judy!)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Nestabilities oval dies, Sizzix embossing dots,
Copics for coloring, corner rounder, buttons, twine, pop dots



And the very talented Jenn Biederman is generously giving away her prizes that she won for a Hero Arts challenge together with a card and an ATC that she created. Her cards alone are the true prizes and I can attest to this because I own a "JB original"! Visit her blog and prepare to be dazzled by her cards, projects and layouts. Thanks, Jenn!

  22. Donna, this is gorgeous - I've not noticed this image over at Mo's... so I might just have to swoooooop on over and take a look. This is a totally beautiful card and your colours and embellishments are just fabulous. You are such a sweetheart and as Kelly says you really do have the kindest heart.
    I have just finished my 'digital- image-altering' labour of love so you are welcome to drop by and take a look if you get time. Big hugs, Jo x
