My very dear cyber friend Ann from Craftroom Creations is offering some fabulous Penny Black stamps as blog candy to celebrate her upcoming birthday.
In order to qualify for entry to her draw, she has set a little task and it's one that I am more than willing to do.
Please pop over HERE and join in with her Summertime Blog Candy ... not only will you be in with a chance of winning brilliant blog candy, but you'll also help to bring a smile to a child's face and a little sunshine into their day ... believe me there's no better feeling than that!
Coincidently the Simon Says Stamp Challenge for this week is Happy Mail and is asking for cards for Post Pals and a similar project Make a Child Smile.
There are going to be some humungous smiles doing the rounds this week if we each step up to the plate and send just one little card or one brief letter to one sick child.
Here is a quick card I made this morning from a cute QVC kit called Patchwork Pals.
I do feel like I've cheated a bit because all I had to do was punch an aperture in a DL card blank, pop out the diecuts and stick them on.
I didn't realise the back and front images don't match exactly until after I'd already glued one half which is a bit of a nuisance 'cos it looks like I've misaligned the pieces but I didn't ... t'was naughty Kanban's fault!!
However, I'm sure the little boy it is intended for won't care a jot about that ... so I won't either.
I've wanted to get involved with Post Pals for some considerable time, but to my shame, I kept dilly dallying and putting it off ...
... but thanks to Ann's wee blog candy challenge I have finally been spurred into doing something and with the Post Pals direct link now a permanent feature on my sidebar, I fully intend to send a little something to a special child regularly from now on.
It really isn't difficult ... and you only have to read the messages on the site to know it means so much to these children and their families.
