CWC Challenge #16

It is time for another Craft With Cutters challenge over at My Paper Crafting.  And this challenge is oh so special.  The is is our monthly participation in Madison's  I Feel The Love Project.  

I Feel the Love Project - January 2013

In loving memory, the I feel the Love Project would like to pay tribute toVictoria Leigh Soto (Vicki), a first grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary. She lost her life on 12.14.12, but six or seven (still to be confirmed) students in her classroom survived that day because of her selfless actions. It is those students that we will be making cards for this month. They are not to be forgotten. They too have suffered a tremendous loss and have experienced a tragedy that will forever change their lives. We will be making Valentine's Day cards/cards with hearts on them for these wonderful kids. All projects should be colorful and uplifting. These children are all first grade students.  

In addition, we will be collecting cards for Ms. Soto's family. These can be pretty blank cards, thinking of you cards, or any appropriate, uplifting cards that one would send to a family member after a loss. Please be sure to sign your cards. Ms. Soto's family members include her mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Soto (Carlos and Donna); her sisters, Jillian and Carlee; and her brother, Carlos Matthew. Among Ms. Soto's favorite things are the color green and flamingos. 

If you would like to be a part of this project...

All you need to do is:
Just make a card, link it the CWC challenge and then link it up over at I Feel The Love January 2013.  And last of all, but most important please mail your card by January 31st to

Here ae a couple of cards I have made to send to the children.  The first card is made with the Paper Pups cartridge.  

All of the papers are from Recollections.  I used an M-Bossibilities folder to emboss the lime green paper.  And the scalloped circle was cut with a Spellbinder die and then embosses with a Cuttlebug folder.  The love hear and puppies were cut from the Cricut cartridge Paper Pups.  

And now here is another card using Paper Pups and the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cakes cartridge.

The cute little paps were cut from Paper Pups.  And the hearts and Love sentiment were cut from the Martha Stewart Holiday cartridge.  The scalloped circles were cut with Spellbinders dies and the embossing was done with Cuttlebug folder.  I just love this color combination because it is so happy and bright.  

I hope you will join us this week in our challenge and then send your cards to the I Feel The Love Project.
