I am very pleased to announce that we will be adding TWO, that's right, TWO new hospitals to our recipient list! Our newest Design Team member for the challenge blog, Karen, told me about The Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Her grandson received excellent care from them when he was born 6 weeks prematurely. He is now a very healthy 4 year-old. Karen would like to give back to the hospital by helping to collect cards for them. There are 2 branches of this hospital, Neenah and Milwaukee. 

They treat 50-60 children at these hospitals, so they could use A LOT of cards. They also had a great suggestion of creating cards that the children can choose from to give to their nurses and doctors to say Thank You.

Karen is ready to begin collecting cards, so you can start sending them her way. Her address can be found here. I will be collecting again beginning in May, so you will have your choice of where to send your cards. Each card you send (to either of us) will get you an entry into the prize giveaway. The next giveaway is scheduled for April 12th. The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the digital stamp store of their choice. 

Please be sure to follow the card guidelines to ensure that all of your cards can be passed along to the children.

Thank you for your continued support and have a fabulous day!

I received a very nice package of cards today, however there was no name or return address on them. There were about 7 cards, most of them featuring a little boy and phrases like "awesome", and a few of them had Dustin Pike digis on them. If these sound like your cards please comment on this post with your name so I can enter you in our next drawing and you can get credit for the adorable cards.

Thank you mystery sender!!


PLEASE, PLEASE  read the guidelines for cards before sending them. I have received several packages of cards that although they are lovely, I can NOT use because the guidelines have not been followed. It is a shame to see such beautiful work not be used.

There aren't that many guidelines and they can all be found here.

Thank you for your cooperation and support. We have some exciting announcements coming in the next few days.

I have received several cards for Akron Children's Hospital during the last week. Thank you to everyone who has sent cards in. I will be posting pictures of the cards and adding all of your names to the giveaway drawing list very soon.

I am also working on a few new things. We will be adding another hospital to our list next week. I have also been in contact with another organization that helps kids in a different way to see if we can send cards to the kids they help as well. I'm very excited for the opportunity to reach out to even more children.

I will also be giving the blog a bit of a "makeover" to make it easier to navigate. Look for more information on all of this in the next few weeks. In the meantime, please consider sending a card to Luke.
