JessicaLynnOriginal and Cards From The Heart Card Drive



So there's this card drive that is run by Winter at Winter Wonderland Designs each year for the last 8 years.  She collects Valentines and then sends them out to various hospitals and foster homes to be handed out to kids.  Jessica introduced us to this card drive and she created this custom digital Brentwood stamp to be used for cards for the drive.



There are a few rules for the cards... there can't be any glitter or items added that could fall off or be taken off like sequins or gems.  So you'll definitely want to check out the rules if you're thinking of sending some cards.  You can find them at the Winter Wonderland Blog right here!  But keep in mind that she has to have them by the 31st to give her time to mail them out to the hospitals so they arrive for the kids by Valentines so depending on when you are reading this you may or may not be able to participate this time around.


I made three quick cards by keeping the design similar, but a little different and I used some different colors on each of my Brentwood images too... some doilies... some paper layers (no rule against paper layers!)


And then I just die cut a few stitched hearts out of some metallic paper.. so yeah... a little shine without the glitter!  And then I used the banner from Jessica's Brentwood Owl Once Upon a Fairytale Christmas Clear Stamp set.

So... what do you say?  Can you do it?  I'm mailing mine off on the 27th.  Arizona to Texas... I hope it makes it....love the thought of creating a smile...
