More Valentines for Cards for Hospitalized Kids!

Hope you can stand a few more Valentines - I couldn't seem to stop making them for Cards for Hospitalized Kids!! I had planned to make a quick 10 and pop them in the mail but had worked my way up to 24. Well, I went to package up the 24 and thought them too bulky for an envelope. I put them in a small box and had lots of empty space - so I started making more - LOL! By the time I was done, I had 40 cards! If you have any spare time to make some cards for a good cause, check it out - the young woman who started this charity really inspires me!!

I managed to finish cards with all 10 Disney Princesses - these were some of my favorites! Then I made a fun ice cream cone and a few more boy cards. I made some duplicates but just photographed the first version of each. Here are the cards:

Aurora and Pocahontas Rapunzel and Mulan

Cinderella and ice cream Trio of boy Valentines
Supplies: Disney Princess diecuts by EK Success
Stamps - sentiments from Hero Arts, Clearly Besotted and Simon Says Stamp
Ice Cream Cone from Hero Arts CL963 Color Layering Ice Cream Cone
Car and cycle from Hero Arts CL478 Going
Silhouette Designs for the teepee, tower, pagoda, path, and cowboy
Other - foam tape, puffy heart stickers & red cards (Target Hot Spot), Hero Arts folded cards, 
various patterned papers (Basic Grey, BoBunny, My Mind's Eye), 3M washi tape

I'm off to the post office to put my box in the mail - they like to receive the cards two weeks before the holiday so I should be good. I enjoyed making all these cards and hope they'll bring joy to the recipients!

Thanks for stopping!
