Each of us has created a Valentine's Day card for a sick child and we're asking you to do the same! Simply, create a Valentine's Day card, link it to this blog entry (link-up will remain open until February 7 at 12:00am) and mail it to:
10621 Fuller Ridge Circle

On February 10th, all of the card's will be collected and donated to a local children's hospital. Please include a small message inside your card. Envelopes are not necessary.

Here is the card I made. This is a sliding pop-up card. I used K & Company paper to create the card. The elephant and hearts were cut from the Cricut HOLIDAYS CAKE cartridge. The sentiment BE MINE is a cut from the Cricut SIMPLY CHARMED cartridge.
This card is so much fun because when you slide the blue base down, the card will pop up!!!
I wrote a message to the child who will receive this card. It says, "Someone is thinking of you today. Happy Valentines Day". I decided to write the message by hand, so it would be more personal.
Here is a side view of the card. It shows how the card pops up. Splitcoast Stampers has an excellent tutorial on making the card.
