Cards from the Heart
Hi friends, thanks for being patient with me as I get adjusted to my new and last semester. Now that I have all the syllabi, I’m naturally stressed about the next four months, but I am happy that I got to squeeze in some crafting (after a painful creative block). Anyone else feel guilty about hoarding–I mean owning new products and hardly getting to use them? Yes, I felt that immense guilt for quite some time…so what I like to do is make a bunch of cards and then make someone’s day with them! I would like to think that somewhat evens the balance, lol.
Anyway, I love discovering causes and being able to partake in them. Recently, I found out about the Cards from the Heart Card Drive, where Valentine’s Day cards are given to children in hospitals. All the rules and deadline information is on the website if you’re interested in participating as well–hurry, it’s ending this week!
I was inspired by the subtle colors of this photo from Taheerah’s blog:
This is a set of cards I made using Mama Elephant sets Purrfect Pair and Love Quotes, MFT Die-namics Love & Adore You, and MFT Die-namics Straight to My Heart. I stamped, colored and die cut everything first because my creativity wasn’t exactly flowing. Eventually, this is the card sketch I decided to go with and ended up finally using some doilies I had sitting around! What do you think? They look adorable!
