Christmas Cutie!

Hello, my dear friends! I hope you're having a lovely week. Time is flying, but I'm trying my hardest to squeeze in more Christmas cards for sick kiddos.

As previously mentioned, this month's I Feel the Love Project mission is to create Christmas cards for kids who will be spending the holiday at Flowers Hospital in Alabama. Since severe sickness won't allow them to be home for Christmas, we are delivering festive cheer to them. :o)
The cutie pie sitting on the ornament is a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store. Rather than use the given facial features, I used my favorite Peachy Keen Stamps face, which is from the In The Garden Face Assortment collection. Her headband is made of rhinestones for extra festivity and since she's such a sweetheart, she's wearing a dress that is patterned with candy canes, cookies, and candy. :o) Her hair is embossed with the D'vine Swirls folder for curly texture.

The Christmas tree file was cut out using one of my favorite papers! I thought it would look cute, like the tree is decorated in ribbon and candy canes. :o) I fussy cut candy canes from the paper scraps and adhered them atop each other to be complete and stand out a little more. The Christmas light border is for pure whimsy and is covered in a few shades of Stickles.

The sparkling red bottom is embossed, but is completely washed out in this photograph and not as obvious as I had intended anyway. Lesson learned! But in the right light, you can see the cute ornaments from the Cuttlebug Winter Wonderland set I used. You can see it a little here, if you look *really* closely. ;) Kaisercraft lace divides the base papers.
I made a little window with the My Craft Spot Ornate Labels metal dies and stamped the outline with the coordinating Ornate Labels-Christmas stamp set. The Christmas-decorated neighborhood paper is a favorite from my stash. The gorgeous papers for the tree, dress, and ornament are from Graphic 45's Nutcracker Sweet

I pray that this little card will brighten the holiday of a sweet child battling for their life. It is created in love and hope! :o) Thank you for visiting! I wish you a blessed and beautiful day. :o)

The papers you used are fantastic and that card would cheer any one up I am inspired to play along. I have not had the chance in a while, but this looks like a good cause. Thanks for your wonderful comment on my blog post I always look forward to your comments

  17. Karen, this card is pure magic and you have created such a beautiful scene that is sure to give cheer and support to a sick young lady. I love the work your charity does ....because in giving your time and talents to support and cheer a child your love and support reaches the parents in their darkest days too. I cannot tell you how much it meant to me that people I did not know would give of themselves to show such love to my daughter when she was desperately ill over Christmas. My little one did recover and is now a lovely 26 year old lady but it was the love and care of people like you that gave me more than you'll ever realize. Good luck in our challenge this week.
