Cards for a cause - featuring Gingerbread Land and Sketches4All :)

Good morning everyone! :)

Recently while blog surfing, I came across my friend Michelle that was talking about a Sketches4All blog hop that was happening this weekend! :) Well this particular blog hop really intrigued me, because Michelle mentioned that the Sketches4All DT members were going to making Christmas cards for the children that are getting Cancer treatments at St. Jude's Childrens Research Hospital (love this idea!) but they were also making their cards using Nikki's Gingerbread Land collection! Double win! :)

Fia the owner/creator of Sketches4All came up with the idea for their blog hop and the idea for creating cards - and then Michelle mentioned St. Jude's and then it all came together! :) What AWESOME team work for such a worthy cause :)

So when I left my blog friend Michelle a comment on her blog - I asked if her and her other DT members would send me images of their cards they made, cause I would LOVE to share them on Nikki's blog! An email conversation happened between me and Michelle after that - and now I am excited to share that their DT sent me images of their cards.... and I get to share them with you here today! :)

The first cards I am sharing is from Margie Visnick! :) I love the cards she made! CUTE! :)

Next, we have cards from Jennifer Taylor! I love how she made the skirt for the little Gingerbread girl! :)

Next is Fia Uiterwijk and the ADORABLE cards she made! Love these! :)

Next we have Stacy Harper-Watson's cards! I just love all the amazing details in her cards! :)

Next we have Cheryl Caldwell-Nyboer and her two BEAUTIFUL cards! I just love these! :)

Next we have Rebecca Atkinson's cards!! They are just ADORABLE! :)

And now we have Michelle Hodges the girl who helped pull this all together (I appreciate you girl!) and her two SWEET cards she made! :)

Make sure to check these girls out to get in on their blog hop!! Their hop goes through the 15th... and the winner will be getting Nikki's You're a Hoot collection! :)

This team has truly encouraged and inspired me to make cards for the children at St. Jude's! :) I will be sharing mine that I made soon for this amazing cause! :)  If you are interested in making cards for this worthy cause here is the St. Jude's address:

St. Jude Children Research Hospital
Attn: Vilma Carnahan
595 N. Parkway Memphis TN. 38105

And a very special thank you to the Sketches4All DT for sharing their creations with us :):):)

Thanks for stopping by -- We appreciate it :)
