KWerner Color Challenge #57 & St. Jude Cards

Hey everybody! I'm sorry I didn't post yesterday, like I said I would! I have been really busy with St. Jude cards, card calls, color challenges, and lots of changes in our lives! So I am finally posting in between basketball practice and the BIG UT game tonight! HOOK'EM HORNS!! :)
Anyway, I made a couple of cards for Kristina's color challenge yesterday! I wasn't real sure about the colors at first, but I guess you can tell, I ended up liking them and made two cards! :) I made them both for the St. Jude card drive. If you are interested in helping out with the card drive, go here for all the details.
I got the idea for the first card here. I really like the grid look and it kind of reminds me of a quilt, and Kristina's Mom is making here a quilt with these fabrics! :)
Then I made this card. Polka dot hearts sure make me happy! :)And here are the prizes I have added to these prizes, for the card drive. There will be several winners and I will separate the prizes, after all of the prizes are collected throughout the month!

* (Maya Road) 2 ring heart Chipboard book

* (Jenni Bowlin) Heart Bingo card
* (Jenni Bowlin) XOXO Bingo card

* (American Crafts) Love Letter I Heart You Letter Stickers

* (Fancy Pants) Pink ball trim (1 yard)

* (Maya Road) Hearts Trinket Pins (30)

I really appreciate all of the support! I ask the Lord sometimes, if He is sure He wants me to do this card drive. And then...I get this comment and then I have NO doubt!

I will be making cards tomorrow!! I saw this through a friend's blog and just had to come check it out. My son is a St. Jude patient (now almost five years cancer free - praise God) so I can honestly tell you how wonderful it is that you are others are doing this. It means so much for those kids to get something that puts a smile on their face!!! We will actually be in Memphis on Valentine's Day and the week after for his anniversary check up!! I hope the smiles I see while I'm there are from your cards!! THANKS SO SO MUCH!!! God Bless!!!
