Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge #183

Welcome to another post featuring Christmas and Winter cards! 🙂  I’ve been so busy, I almost forgot to do this post!  This post will be kinda long, so I hope you’re all ready! 🙂

Christmas is an exciting time of year for our kids in hospitals!  Well, it’s exciting for us getting ready to ship them cards!  I know that I love to get cards to share with the kids and see what our generous donors have made to bring smiles to kids faces! 🙂

My husband came home from work late and let me know that it’s snowing outside, as I’m sure it is in many parts of the USA!  So here is my card to share to get things going:

It’s a Winter Birthday card! 🙂  I heard that some people don’t quite understand what “every day cards with Christmas, Winter themes” actually means.  Here is a great example, well, I think so anyway 😉

I used a 6×6 paper pad by Echo Park, called Celebrate Winter.  What fun colors and images they have in this paper pad! 🙂  And it’s a Birthday card! 🙂  I know you shouldn’t start a sentence with “and”,  sorry 😉

I used Stampin’ Up! Basic Black cardstock and sentiment.  I’m not sure which set it came out of because it’s in my “favorites” box that I use all the time.  Both papers came from the same paper pad, and there are other fun papers as well 🙂  No I don’t get paid to promote Echo Park, I just love their paper pads, and they work well with Stampin’ Up! cardstock! 🙂

Next I have some great cards from repeat donor, Lee Mae Elkins from WA.  I know you’ll enjoy her cards! 🙂  Click on them to see their sentiments 😉  Here are some Christmas/Winter Birthdays!

Every day cards with Christmas/Winter themes 🙂

Here are a couple of Blank/no sentiment, Christmas cards 🙂

Some Merry Christmas for those of you missing the “official” Christmas cards 😉

And finally, some “other than Merry Christmas” cards 🙂

Thank you Lee Mae for giving everyone something to love! 🙂  Great examples of almost every kind of Winter/Christmas card! 🙂

I’d like to thank all of my donors for their efforts this year to bring happy smiles to kids faces! 🙂

Thank you for stopping by! 🙂  I hope we’ve given you some inspiration to get through the holiday card making season! 🙂  I hope you’ll come join us again for more cards! 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! 🙂
