Kids Cards for Kids

Hello again!
How's everybody tonight?
I wanted to pop in and share
the cards my boys made for the
Winter is hosting.

I was really touched and proud at
the way they jumped right on board
and got involved in every aspect of the
card-making, from stamping (I helped),
 to coloring, to signing their names.

All together they made 61 cards
for the kids at St. Jude's.
They were very concerned
that there would be enough for
all the sick kids.

Here's a small sampling
of their efforts:

My five-year-old, Dominic,
is in LOVE with the Lawn Fawn kitty.
He wants to stamp him on everything!
And he was very excited about
"coloring in patterns" with the hearts.

I love how my 7-year-old, Elliott,
got creative and gave the pie
cherries on his cheeks.
He's also responsible for the
big smiley-face on the dog card
in the next photo.

My 9-year-old, Chaztin,
has a lot of homework every night
so he didn't get to help as much as the
others, but he still wanted to get involved.
I love his heart trail floating up
into the sky from the bear balloon.

Be sure to let me know if you
enjoyed their cards --
I know they'll be eager to read
the comments. :o)

If you'd like to participate
in this great cause, you still have a
few days to get your card's in.
