Cards for Hospitalized Kids

Well Halloween is sneaking up on us faster that we think.  I managed to sit myself down this morning and make up this card for  Cards for Hospitalized Kids. This is a new organization to me and I am so happy it was brought to my attention.  I, for one, think it is a  FABULOUS idea.  Fortunately none of my children or grand children has had to spend any time in the hospital  (Thank Goodness) but I can only imagine how excited these children must get when they receive a card from a complete stranger.  Anyway here is my first card for these precious children.
I used a House Mouse image and sentiment for this one.  I colored it with Copics and cut it out with SB pinked and regular circles.  I ran one of the circles through the Big Shot with a Swiss Dot embossing folder.  The paper was given to me years and years ago by a good friend, but I could not begin to tell you who made it. (sorry).  I am hoping to get a few more cards made today. I have been in a card making funk of late, but hearing about this organization has seem to brighten my spirits up quite a bit and  found my missing MoJo.     I wish you all a fabulous weekend and thank you for stopping by.  See you again soon.


  1. Great job! Can't go wrong with a HM!

  2. What a CUTE little House Mouse image!!! He's adorable and yes, this will make a perfect card for a child in the hospital! Great cause and a fabulous card.

  3. This is the cutest image with such a fun sentiment, and I love that it's Halloween, but not scary at all! WTG for contributing to another great organization - it's great to have you making cards again :)

  4. That is such a great non-scary Halloween card! I think it is time for us to move in a new direction of bringing smiles. This sounds like a great organization. I will try and hop onboard just as soon as my kitchen renovation comes to an end. :)

  5. Nothing like making cards for a purpose to bring you out of your funkiness. This one is so adorable. Kids love Halloween and this will surely cheer them.
    O.K., you didn't contribute to mine an my sis' fun shopping trip but we were thinking of you just the same. LOL We had some serious fun.

  6. Such a pretty card and fun too. Your card will make someone very happy, you can't help but smile when you see these little critters. Great colors too.
