Sharing my work for Card Cupids

I am not sure how many of you are familiar with Card Cupids and the wonderful work that they do.  Here is a little more information about some of the special things that they do.  Card Cupids work to help brighten the day of a special child by providing with special care packages.  The packages include handmade cards, everyday need items as well as crayons, coloring books, and stuffed animals.  These packages are delivered to children in hospitals and other places that children need special mail.  If you are interested in donating handmade cards or items for the care packages, visit them at there website.

These are a few of the cards that I recently designed as a guest design team member in September. Please take a moment to take a look my creations and then make sure to stop by Card Cupids and see how you can help brighten a child's day.
