Card Cupid Blog Hop

Welcome to the Card Cupids Appreciation Blog Tour!

If you have just hopped on the tour, please go to the first stop, Card Cupid( 

If you have arrived from Corina then you are in the right place.  Thanks for stopping by!

Card Cupids mission is to provide encouragement and joy by sending Card Cuddle Care Packages to children who are facing difficult challenges in their young lives regardless of their economic background.  Card Cupids believes that every child needs to know that they are loved.  A stuffed animal to hold, along with cards that share a positive message can help lift the spirits of children that are faced with difficult challenges.  Card Cupids collects handmade cards to be sent to children along with new stuffed animals, coloring books, activity books, crayons and markers.  Card Cupids hopes to provide numerous Card Cuddle Care Packages to children in hospitals, foster care, homeless shelters, as well as children facing difficulties.

Our Blog Tour theme today is Valentine's projects for children.  For today, I created a treat card for a very special granddaughter.  I was thrilled to find the owl stamp at Michael's $1 bin. Her mother loves owls so I had to incorporate this stamp.  Two prima roses, some Crystal stickles, glossy accents on the hearts, rhinestones and some stitching around the candy box completed the front.

 The Cuttlebug embossed folder on the right I left blank for her grandmother to write a message.  The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils.  This adorable image is from Ingerharding Design.

You can find the tutorial for the box/card at SCS
