All Things Unity #16 {Cards for Kids}

Hello, friends:}

Welcome back to another 2 week challenge over at All Things Unity! This week we are making cards for Jennifer McGuire's Cards for Kids!! This card drive will help send 13 sick kids some encouragement, love, cheer, and hope. What a great cause!! 

My first card was created specifically for Zach- 8 years old. He looks so sweet in his pic! I wanted to personalize his card with his initial, so I used my Cricut for the letter Z. I also stamped Ippity's Book It! and Unity's Garden Variety tag. I masked this tag, as well as the sentiment from Unity's May 10 KOTM. Love how this turned out! So FUN--and boy-ish!! Hope he likes it:} This also fits in with the USCWCMD16 challenge by Stephanie [use a tag]. I'm loving using these tags on cards!! SO FUN!!!
My next card was created for any of the kids--and it is perfect for the USCWCMD17 challenge by Maria [NO patterned paper]. I have had this idea for awhile...and Cathy [our wonderful GDT] did something like this before! Great minds think alike!! I love this bird stamp from Unity's August 10 KOTM. I stamped it twice on the card base and then glittered one of the birds. Making it "one of a kind". The sentiment is from Unity's May KOTM [u and r] and 100% Happy. I embossed the word "kind" and then added glitter to make it pop! Love it!! LOVE how this card turned out:} And who would have thought--NO patterned paper!
My last card is my absolute favorite. I think it could be for any of the kids (maybe just a girl...since the colors are soft and pretty). I just LOOOOOOOOVE how this color theme and stamp set came together. I used Unity's What a Hoot! stamp set for the owl and branch/leaves. I paper pieced each of the images [making this card an entry for the USCWCMD01 challenge by AJ]. LOVE that owl!! So pretty! I also used Ippity's Sweet Thoughts of You stamp set for the sentiment. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I can't wait to send this to one of the kids!!
That's it for me--but make sure to check out the other ATU DT members' blogs!! You are going to love these cards--so fun and perfect for little ones!!

Beautiful cards and such a great cause! You really don't realize how blessed you are until you see sick children (I'm a Pediatric Nurse). The kids will love the cards!

Why does Blogger keep giving me a 503 Error. SIGH!

AS I was trying to say before Blogger so rudely interrupted... another array of remarkable cards! And what a great cause! My fav today is the ONE OF A KIND... love how you did that!

Hi Savannah~

I really loved all 3 cards, and what a worthwhile ministry! Thank you for participating-My Sister-in-Christ! I really liked the 2nd card the best, if I had to pick one. I think it is super cute!

I think the owl card is fabulous! I love it's eyes! So big and open!

I bet Zach will be sporting his tag card, if that string is long enough to tie it to something!

Great job!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

p.s. Isn't it wonderful that we can use our favorite hobby to do the Lord's work? I love it!
