Becky, your gift will be mail out this week.  It might not arrive in time for Christmas.  So you might have to wait until New Year to open it :)

Here are some photos I took the night before the cards were delivered.  I try forming a heart with them.  But that didn't turn out so well.  LOL.

Thank you so much again to all the friends that helped with my first "Hug A Heart" Cards Drive for kids in the cardiac unit of Nationwide Children's Hospital!  This will not be my last cards drive.  So stay tune!  Wink ;}

Thanks for visiting and for sharing your comments with me.  I read and appreciate each and every one of them!  Wishing you a lovely week ahead!

Wow! It was my pleasure to make cards for your Hug a Heart drive. I'm so happy you got a good response, and I will be happy to make cards whenever you need them. And thank you for the prize. I told my husband I didn't want anything for Christmas this year, I just wanted to do for other people. What you sow does come back to you. Thanks again for the privilege of helping out.
