Get Your Hearts and Flowers Ready...


...and all your card making supplies. 

For the fourth year we have been asked by Melinda at "Country Dreaming" to be part of the Valentine Card Shower Party. To make things brighter for kids who are in the Children's Hospital in Kansas City over Valentine's Day -- it makes me sad just to type this -- one of the local radio stations sponsors a card party. It doesn't matter where you live or how crafty you are, you can be part of the fun. I'm not so crafty -- maybe the card class I'm taking next week will help -- but I had fun last year with stickers and fun, too, knowing I could make the day sweeter for little ones who couldn't be at their class party or enjoying Valentine's Day at home. 

The details are on Melinda's blog. Just click the link above. You'll get all the information about the card party and you'll get to meet Melinda, too, and she is a sweetheart. The cards need to be at Melinda's on February 8 so she can get them to the group in time for Valentine distribution. There were six bloggers who participated last year and wouldn't it be great if we could double the number for 2014. I've got my heart stickers ready and I just need to buy the cute pink scissors I saw at Michael's last week. 

We're gearing up for snow here. Tomorrow's going to be a baking day and I'm perusing banana oatmeal bread recipes. I think there may be a pot of soup that needs to get made tomorrow, too. I've got books to read, papers to shred and blogs to visit, and I am so glad I don't have to go out until Wednesday morning. 

As always, thanks for visiting. Keep warm and cozy and take good care of yourself.

I've been anxious to try to make a card after getting to know Ida at Faith Artistry blog.
Thanks for this info.
Stay safe and warm; sounds like you will have a cozy day tomorrow!

It sounds like you have plenty of projects you can do at home so you avoid the snow. The card project sounds good.

Thank you for telling us about this project. What a great cause!

We are expecting snow here tomorrow, too. Yay! But I have to go into the office--it's newspaper layout day, so no way to get out of it. :-) I will still enjoy seeing the beauty of the snow, though. Enjoy your day!

What a good idea. I will check out Melinda's blog. I already make a lot of valentines but I think I could add a few more for such a good cause.

Good luck with the snow. It sounds like you have plenty of good projects to do. Hugs, Lura

What a wonderful, sweet project! I have never made a card, but you have me thinking.

It looks like we will get a substantial amount of snow coming also. I will also be cooking up a storm.

What a lovely idea.

For this round it looks like you'll be the one getting the snow and not us here in Ohio. But we are in the deep freeze with temps close to zero and highs of about 10 today. Good time to turn the oven on and make soup for sure!

Theresa said...

Great idea! I just saw where you all were getting snow! Stay warm dear friend, HUGS!

Sola Scriptura said...

What a lovely idea. I hope lots of cards are made for those dear children.
I'm sure your home will be full of wonderful smells with all of your baking! :)

We are just going to get cold again here but I heard what you all have coming for snow. So glad you get to stay inside for a couple of days! Praise HIM for a roof over our heads!

The card project sounds like a good one! Stay warm and safe in this storm that is upon you!

Simply Linda said...
