Valentines For St. Jude

Hello there! Have you heard about the WONDERFUL project Winter Sims is working on? She's collecting handmade Valentines for the kiddos at St. Jude Hospital!!! How sweet is that?!? There's no better feeling than brightening someone's day, especially a child's day!!! If you'd like to participate, you can check out all of the details on Winter's blog (click HERE)!!! She'll be collecting cards until the end of January, so there's still plenty of time to be a part of this heart-warming project!!
Here are the two Valentines I made for the kids at St. Jude. I'll be mailing them off to Winter first thing Monday morning!
I paper pieced the cute little LOVE BUG!! Isn't she sweet? Here's a close-up:
I kept both cards very simple, and I was really happy with how cute they turned out!! What do you think?
I started cleaning out and reorganizing my craft room today.....oh my gosh...what a project!! It's a total disaster right now, but I know it will all be worth it when it's finished! I'll be sure to post photos when I finally get it all put back together!
Hope you're having a GREAT weekend!
