Cards for Texas Children's Hospital

Hey everybody! I wanted to make a new page for the Texas Children's Hospital Card Drive, with all the info. It is all the same, but I wanted it to be clear, where they are going. You can still post your projects on Mr. Linky if you want to here, we will just keep both card drives together on there. Yesterday I received 128 cards in the mail (in one day)! Ya'll are truly AMAZING! :)
Here are some of the guidelines from Texas Children's Hospital and a few of mine.
* 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. (This could be a little tricky, but I think you can handle it!) :)
* 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 your card.)
* Please send all cards to me at:
Winter Sims
Cards for Texas Children's Hospital
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 or a joke.) 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 prizes. I will be adding more prizes, often. The more cards you send, the more times your name goes into the drawing. Let your kids get involved too! :)
* 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 .
You are welcome to use the Texas Children's logo on your blog to spread the word, just remember to save it to your computer first. (Thank you Christina, for making it! )Also, I put a button on my side bar, if you would like to make a donation to Texas Children's Hospital, just click on it and it will direct you to their site!

And here a couple more cards that I have made over the last couple of weeks. I have been trying to use some new stamps. I think these little critters are too cute! These stamps are some of the same stamps that are up for grabs in the prizes! (No, I didn't use the prizes stamps, I had to buy some for myself! ) :) And I have figured out, that I LOVE paper piecing, it works great when you don't own alot of Copics!
Look how cute he is! I even paper pieced his teeth! :)
Thank you all for your help! :)
Have a Blessed day!

Winter, your blog is fabulous and kudos to you for crafting for a cause. The local children's hospital in Utah has a special place in my heart and I'm sure you feel the same way about Texas Children's Hospital.

Oh Winter... these are adorable! I cannot believe how many cards you are getting! Well... I should be able to believe it... God is the one who put you on this mission! That is so awesome! Again... I love your cards!!!

Karen B. said...

Cute cards Winter! So, If I have already mailed my cards a week ago, do I need to send you an email with the information you've requested? (Name, Number of cards, Address, email, etc.) as I didn't include that for the St. Jude drive...Thanks!

Jessica said...

Super cute, Winter!!! I love the little turtle and the beaver is super cute too :) Hopefully you'll receive mine in a few days :)

Thanks for granting us the privilege of blessing a little one!!

Oh so glad the logo worked out. She did an awesome job with it. I like her's better. I'm sure she had some digi supplies she could use! Glad to hear all the cards are pouring in.
