Cards for Little Hearts

Cards for Little Hearts

Although it cannot cure congenital heart disease, a simple, handmade card can have a significant, positive and lasting impact on heart patients and their families.  Our cards represent the love that these children are receiving and assure them they are not alone.  When they feel that love, it gives them hope, lifting their spirits and inspiring strength to continue fighting to get better.  We are tremendously grateful for the generosity and support from card makers around the world for taking part in Cards for Little Hearts and hope that you too can join us. 

I encourage you to go to their website. The Winter themed cards deadline is November 1st. The next batch of cards to make is Heart Themed cards. The deadline for that is January 31, 2020. There are some important guidelines to follow that you need to know about. Christina doesn't care if you make 1 card or 101 cards. Just think of the smiles and the difference you can make on one face. Actually more, because the doctors, nurses and staff love passing these cards out. 

This is my 1st year to make the Winter Themed cards. I chose a cute Penny Black image called Christmas Hopping By and made 50 cards. You don't have to make them all the same. I chose to because of some shoulder issues and it was easier for me to do so. The Merry Christmas you see in the background was for picture purposes only as there are guidelines as I said. 


Penny Black - Christmas Hopping By
Copics - E31 33 35, RV11, R27 29
My Favorite Things - Die-namics 20
Stickles

I stamped all the images on my Mini Misti and colored them with my Copics. The Stickles was added last after I assembled the layers. My husband added some of the layers for me. My shoulder has had some issues so he was here to save the day and be a good helper when I needed some of the layers added.

Copic Boot Camp Sponsors Oct 2019






I'm back from Copic Boot Camp. Jennifer Dove and her crew did a wonderful job. I had a great time. The products above were provided free by various sponsors. It seems like every time we got up to go to lunch or supper there was always a free product at our work station. I really appreciated learning some new techniques. I have some practicing I need to do. A huge thank you to all of the sponsors. I unfortunately missed a few of the sponsor gifts in the photo. 

The November Copic Boot Camp starts in a few weeks. I know it'll be as much fun as the October Copic Boot Camp. Jenn will have another one in January of 2020.

Copic Boot Camp


I'll be in Copic Boot Camp this coming Thursday in Phoenix, Arizona with the extremely talented instructor/artist/colorist Jennifer Dove. When she says Boot Camp she means it. We are going to be learning day and night. I'm looking forward to learning more about coloring with my Copic markers and experiencing the class with others who love their markers and want to have fun. The list of sponsors is incredible! I've been looking forward to this  class for almost a year.

The Copic Boot Camps are held in October and November. I think the 2019 classes filled up soon after the last 2018 class was held. Jenn has added January 2020 to the schedule if you're interested. 

If you're going to be attending this week, let me know. I'd love to meet you.
