Birthday Cards for the Ronald McDonald House Hop ~

Welcome! Sarah Henderson had a wonderful idea to make birthday cards for children being treated at the Ronald McDonald House in Lubbock, TX. If you would like to make some cards too, check Sarah's blog for the address. I am sure the children will be thrilled to have a card, hand made just for them. Sarah is offering a stash prize for commenters and for those of you that send in cards, there is crinkle ribbon and clear stamps up for grabs!  

I created these cards with the Cricut - Create a Critter 2 cartridge and used the Hero Arts Good Friends and Happy Birthday stamp sets.

The papers are from Recollections and the elephant was cut at 3-1/2".

The butterfly was cut at 2-3/4". I added some Cotton Candy Stickles to the wings. Used a white gel pen for the trail and a Fiskars border punch for the scallop.

I used a little Scribbles Paint - Watermelon to make the dots on the sentiment and the hearts that were cut from the wings went inside the card.
BLOG CANDY!!! I have some adorable Crate Paper Rubons that are the perfect size for cards or scrapbook pages. Simply leave a comment and check back here Tuesday to see if you are the winner!
Congratulations to #5 Sandy S!
