Hug a Heart Card Drive BLOG HOP

Hello, everyone!  Today I am participating in the Hug a Heart Card Drive Blog Hop! February is Heart Month in the U.S. and Canada so our theme is hearts! I hope you will join the hop and will be inspired to make some cards to help this worthwhile cause. Christina Hor is collecting handmade cards with a heart theme (non-Valentine’s Day) to distribute to children who are Heart Center patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Information about the Hug a Heart Card Drive can be found at Christina Hor Designs.

The card drive itself has already started - on January 16 - and we are now halfway through. But there is still plenty of time to get involved and send in some cards by February 14! Please consider sharing your talents and make some cards to brighten a child's day!



Everyone likes prizes, so you will be excited to know that there are prizes to be won for sending in your cards, as well as a prize for hopping along in today's blog hop!  Keep reading!

I have three cards to share, and each one is detailed below.  I used clip art (precoloured images) because I made a lot of cards for this cause!

Card 1 - Kitty

  • Clip art: Diddybag
  • Clear stamp: Your Next Stamp Summer Blossom Fluffy Kitten
  • Die: Docrafts Xcut Vintage Notes Filigree Heart

Card 2 - Dog

  • Clip art:  Pink Gem Designs Henry in Love
  • Rubber stamp:  Kolette Hall Thoughts of You
  • Die: Spellbinders Shapeabilities Scalloped Borders Two  
  • Patterned paper: Kim and Co.
  • Other: Heart punch (unmarked)

Card 3 - Bear

  • Clip art:  Little Scraps of Heaven With Love Bear 
  • Clear stamp:  Hero Arts Everyday Sentiments
  • Die: Lawn Fawn Speech Bubble Border
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Cross Your Heart
  • Other: Heart punch (unmarked)

Giveaway
  • To celebrate the hop Christina Hor Designs will be giving one random hopper a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp.
  • To be eligible to win, you must leave a comment on all blogs by Wednesday, February 8 (11:59 p.m. EST).
  • Winner will be announced at Christina Hor Designs on Friday, February 10 (8 a.m. EST).

  3. A kitty, a dog and a bear. So now, I feel like this is a throw down and I'm going to have to make a Bunny or two or well, you know bunnies can multiply so I'm sure I can get more than 1 or 2 done and sent. Love all these. They are so cute.

    I got to everyone's blog but Becky's. No link.

  12. Awww... these are all so sweet. They are sure to put a smile on someone's face. I like that you called them 'clip art' instead of digital stamp, a more accurate name methinks.
