Postpals Reindeer Scheme

I have joined a group called Postpals, which send cards, letters, small gifts to sick children in the UK.


This year I have decided to join in with the 'Reindeer scheme'. A Reindeer is someone who is assigned a Pal and their siblings and sends 9 cards during the month of December, one from each reindeer, talking from the reindeers perspective i.e. talking about the sleigh getting full, getting ready for the big night, loving carrots being left out etc. It is not only fun for the children receiving the cards, but also for the volunteers getting to do imaginative writing. In the past one girl believed the reindeer wrote to them as she helped look after her disabled brother. Another little boy was very relieved as Father Christmas definitely knew he was in hospital so wouldn’t be missed out.



I am making a different card from each of the reindeer to go along with the letters - which means that my blog may suddenly become overrun with reindeer cards!!!




For this reindeer card, I used an image from Bugaboo digital stamps (Snowball Reindeer) which I colored with my prismacolor pencils. I paired this with Echo Park's 'Winter Park' collection of papers and My Mind's Eye's 'Winter Wonderland' twine. I think it's turned out pretty cute! This reindeer letter will be all about playing in the snow and having fun!

Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Anything Goes'.
As always, we welcome your own interpretation.  
I found this great idea on Pinterest for superhero invitations, which I must admit, I copied the design. I also made matching cupcake toppers and tags. My friend's son was super excited and has been wearing his superhero cape and mask ever since!

Cute Card Thursday - Back to school

As we don't send the children 'Back to School' cards, I decided to use the theme of school to create this quick and simple card.

Cute Card Thursday - Clean & Simple

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Clean & Simple'
As always, we welcome your own interpretation.  
I made this card for my son's 14th birthday - where does the time go? The current craze is skateboarding and I found this awesome image from Lori Boyd ('Ethan') which looks scarily like my son! I colored him in with my 
prismacolor pencils and typed the sentiment on my computer.
