Hey, friends!  Today I have two new ARTWORK and two cards to share!  I made them for my Cards for Little Hearts’ 2020 Heart-Theme card drive, going on until January 31st.  I just finished drawing these images.  Each year I try to come up with at least one drawing for the patients.  I’m so happy that I am able to produce two this year!

    Cards Detail

    If you have taken part in my card drive, or have visited Cards for Little Hearts’ website, you probably recognize the little teddy that tucked halfway inside the opened envelope.  That teddy is the logo for the card drive.  I kept him and the teddy with the balloon heart simple, in a line art format to make it easier to color with as I will be including these images in the coloring kits that my family and I are put together for the little heart patients.  I have been including coloring kits with the cards for past collections.  Each kit contains a pack of 4 crayons and four, A2 size coloring pages that I create with either my drawings, drawings done by my oldest daughter, Catherine, or with a stamped image that I purchased.  This year, I will be including these 2 new images along with 2 old images drawn by Catherine, in the kits.

    For the supplies list that I used to make these cards, please see below.  I apologize, these images will not be available for free download as I am considering converting them into clear stamp sets.
