Cards for St. Jude.




If you know Winter... well you know how great she is. When Winter emailed me this idea I knew I wanted to be involved. During the month of January Winter will be collecting Valentine's Day cards to deliver to St. Jude hospital! Isn't that a fantastic idea?

Here are a few of the details from Winter:

* Cards need to be a Valentine theme.
* Cards can't have anything about 'Get Well Soon', 'Feel Better', or anything reminding them of being sick. (Only Valentine Cards)
* Please make cards that can be used for any gender or age.
* Cards must be able to fit into a 4 1/2 X 5 3/4 envelope. (I will provide clear envelopes for each card, so there is no need to send one with it.)
* Please send all cards to me:
Winter Sims
Cards for St. Jude
P.O. Box 754
Warren, TX 77664
* You can include a message in the inside, but please remember, nothing reminding them of being sick. (Maybe just a Valentine sentiment.)
You can also sign your name and where you are from.
* I will be excepting cards for the whole month of January. At the end of the month, I will pick random winners for the prizes. I will be adding more prizes, often. The more cards you send, the more times your name goes into the drawing.
* Please send a piece of paper with your name, address, email address, and the amount of cards you sent. (It will help, when I have the drawing.)
* If anyone wants to donate a prize for the drawings, please email me with the details at marcussim@aol.com .
I want to Thank everyone for your support in this card drive, I couldn't have done it with out you!  I really think, the patients will love the cards!


So fun right? So I am going to try to send 10 cards to Winter and I thought I'd get things started. Here's my first card:


 

I hope you'll join Winter and help her get a ton of cards to the kids at St. Jude!

Also, make sure to check back tomorrow for the first peek at my first stamp set which will be releasing January 8!
