Bring on the Valentine Piggies


You may have noticed the large pink heart I added to my sidebar - it's for the Cards From the Heart Drive where Winter Sims collects and sends Valentines to children in hospitals. If you want to participate and donate to this worthy cause, just click on that pink heart to be taken to the page where you can read all the rules and details for this worthy cause. Cards must be in her hands by the end of January, so I make valentines all year long for this drive.

I'm starting with a set of cards using SU!'s This Little Piggy which I colored with Copics. The background was done with a SU! wooden background stamp and I added a little heart-punched border done with a Martha Stewart punch. 
Here's the inside....



I used a MFT mini tag with a snippet of ribbon and some assorted stamps and hearts cut from cardstock.

and here's the set of them I made.


There can be no wink of stella, stickles, or glitter on these cards, or any buttons, sequins, or gemstones that could be a choking hazard. If you are considering donating cards, please follow the rules carefully or your cards can't be used.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your new year is off to a good start!

I love that you are able to donate to this cause. I would need to work far ahead, as Valentines are one of my biggest card needs after Christmas. I love your piggies, though, and they look fun to color in shades of pink and even some browns for mud! Great cards, have a good day!

You have had a fab set of cards for the hospitalized children, such a great cause! Well done! Isn't easy making lovely cards without any sparkling and 3D embellishments, but you made it so well! Love the cute piggie and the inside is so lovely too!
