Charity Card Sponsors

I am looking to get back into my blogging more. And as my readers know I make charity cards and I'm always looking for donations to help with the cost of making the cards. I want to propose a deal with anyone who would like to send me your products from your company. If you donate products I will make some cards with it to send to the charity Operation Write Home for our soldiers. And when I do I will upload photos of the cards that I make and include a review of your product for my readers. I think it's a win win. You get a review and a link back to your product and I get new supplies that I can use to make cards. I am accepting both traditional and digital supplies. Please send me a message for my email address for the digital products and my physical address to send the traditional products. I look forward to your responses!!!

It's FF which means Freebie Friendly. Look like this term would be the one to start looking out for if you need something you can feel safe offering as a freebie on your website or blog.
Just a heads up for anyone who didn't already know!! I know I like to be able to stay informed on all the legal stuff as to not violate any terms or laws. Just helping everyone to stay safe!

Cards For Charity

I made more cards for charity!!!! I had them on my computer for a little while just waiting to get enough time to prepare them for posting! Now I have them ready and sharing them with you!!

My first card is an Easter card that I made using a printable from Printable Heaven.
The next card is a Get Well card that I made using two Dustin Pike Stamps combined with a stone background. All was hand colored by me.
Next, is a Happy Birthday Bear card made with a World Card Making Day Freebie stamp I found on the net. It's a cute little bear stamp from Dustin Pike. The stamp was hand colored by me!
My next card is going to Operation Write Home with the Happy Birthday Bear card!! This one is special though, because it's a "Thank You" card or what OWH calls an "Any Hero" card. The digi stamp is from Dustin Pike and the papers I used was donated by a lovely lady, Jessica @ Glimpses by Signify Pink. The name of the kit is "Pages of Honor". The is my very first card made with this kit that they generously donated!
And my last and final card for now is my "Sleeping Kitty" Card. I left this one blank with no theme intentionally because, at Operation Write Home they also need these kind of cards since they can be used anytime of the year!! I used a digi stamp from Sliekje Stamps.
I hope you enjoyed my new cards. I made a few more since I made these. I will be working on getting pictures of them to post!! Keep checking back to see more!!

If you like my cards don't forget to share my blog with others that you know who will enjoy them too!!!

Expanding My Charity Cards Outreach

I am expanding my charity cards to Veterans!!! If anyone knows any who would enjoy a handmade card during certain times of the year please email me with their info and I'll make a list of Veterans to send the cards too. They served our country and shouldn't be forgotten. Also if anyone can donate anything to help with the cost or supplies that would help out a lot and enable me to send out more cards, Thanks!!!
