Heartfelt "Hi"

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with another card for the Hug A Heart Drive. This is a card drive especially for Heart Center patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital during February, which is American Heart Month. You can find out all the card requirements and specifications HERE. They are asking for Heart-Themed, but not specifically Valentine cards which will be given to children hospitalized with serious heart conditions.

Since I still had all my brown (umber) colored butterfly supplies out, I decided to combine the Hug a Heart card challenge with Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge #71 of Butterfly/ies + U is for Underneath &/or Umber (the color). I used the lattice work heart die from my Serendipity - Heart Scroll stamp and die set that shows the brown butterfly patterned paper "underneath".

I stamped a grab bag Unity stamp with the cheery hearts and "Hi" sentiment in Versafine ink in Vintage Sepia and die cut it with My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set. My background is die cut with the pierced large rectangle from the Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set. I inked the edges of the panels with Distress Ink and added some kraft photo corners for fun.

Here's a shot of another one I made from the same design. Which do you like better? I think I might like the first one a little more.

Thank you for taking a peek at my cards! I love that you come to visit my blog and your sweet comments keep me going. :)
