Hopping for a Cause!!

Hello and welcome to the Sunshine Mail Foundation's Summer Blog hop!

This week we are hopping along with the Sunshine Mail foundation for a GREAT cause!!! The Sunshine Mail foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, provides children in need comfort, support and joy through free Sunshine Mail Care Packages.  Sunshine Mail is filled with handmade cards, a new stuffed animal and age appropriate items and delivered to children in need including hospitals, homeless shelters and foster care.

We at Sunshine Mail are excited to be doing a Blog Hop with so many great sponsors. Our DT has put together some wonderful cards to inspire you. Please Join us each day to see our fun creations. We also have great prizes to give away. We hope that you will enjoy your time here and get some great ideas for cards. We also hope that you will be inspired to send in cards of your own, to Sunshine Mail. There are many kids that would love to receive your cards. We love to put smiles on children's faces. It's a wonderful feeling to know that something you've created has touched someone in need. You don't need to send in cards to be eligible to win the prizes but we would love it if you do :)
This summer's blog hop will give YOU the chance to play along for a wonderful cause, while also giving you the chance to win cool prizes!! Each day, members of the design team will feature cards made from our various sponsors. All YOU have to do is:
  1. Become a follower of  our blog
  2. Add our Badge to you blog and link back.
  3. Make sure you visit and leave comments on the DT members' posts throughout the week.

The sponsor for my card is Digi Stamps 4 Joy and they are offering up FIVE (5)!! digis to selected winners from this week's blog hop! 

My card was made featuring Digi Stamps 4 Joy's Chubby Boy with cap and colored in using copics.

I am sooooo glad I was finally able to make a "boy" card for the Sunshine Mail Foundation! So many of my recent cards were for girls only and we are often asked to make projects for boys and girls alike... That being said, please do take some time to visit the Sunshine Mail foundation's site to find out more about the cause and consider sending in some of your handmade creations to brighten a young boy or girl's day... I don't know about you, but I love the feeling of knowing that I'm using a piece of my craft to give back to a real need. So I get to have fun making cool cards for kids, while actually touching someone's life and trying to brighten his or her day... 

Anyhoo, if you want to hop along, head over to the Sunshine Mail Foundation's site and start there... we have TONS of prizes up for grabs and you definitely do not want to miss this one! Have fun hopping! :)

Here is the Schedule for today. (Sponsored by Stitchy Bear & Digi Stamps 4 Joy)

  1. Adina, this little guy is sooo cute! I love the burlap. I know what you mean about boy cards...I generally seem to gravitate to girl cards too!

  2. Love the added burlap, very cute!


Thank you for taking the time to leave some love!
