Card Drive for Kids!


I am so delighted to be able to take part in tonight's CenterStage Spotlight hop, a special Card Drive for Kids with Spina Bifida!

You should have arrived here from my friend, Cheri's.  If you didn't, be sure to visit the StampTV forum to start at the top of the hop!

I made my card for a sweet young girl named Bekah!  I had a whole bunch of fun making it really girlie pink!  I hope she will love it!  I figured most young girls like pink, and clothes, and bling!

Notes:
Basic Grey Sweet Threads designer paper
Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick distress ink
Nestabilities classic rectangles, large and small
crepe ribbon
jute thread
tulle
pearls
button
snowflake punches
rhinestones

You can participate  in the card drive too!  Here are the details:
Create a fun, uplifting card or cards for one or all the kids listed below (you can click on their names to read more about each of them). The card can be anything cheery, encouraging, supportive, etc.  Please DO NOT send sorry, get well or anything like that. Remember, we want to cheer them up.

The kids:
All cards need to have a message in it for the child/family. Please also sign your name and where you are from. On the card envelope, write the name of the child. Please, don't seal the envelope, as the parents might want to read the cards before the kids see them.

Mail your card(s) to Giovana along with a piece of paper with your name, address, e-mail address and blog (if you have one). This will help a lot to contact the winner a lot faster!

Everyone who mails in a card for each of the children will be entered into the drawing to win a grand prize!  There are more than $400 worth of prizes!  Cards must be received by October 31st to be eligible for the drawing.

From here, you're visiting Giovana.  It is Giovana who organized this wonderful event!  Be sure to tell her thank you!  It's a lot of work to be the coordinator of something like this and she deserves lots of kudos!
