Surving the Empty Nest- I Am More than a Mom

Making a sick child smile!

So are you getting caught up in the Olympics or are you still finding time to craft?  I am spending my time doing a little of both.  I just can't seem to stay out of the craft room no matter what is on television. 
I am on a mission to create as many cards as I can for this month's  I Feel the Love Project!  As you know, the I Feel the Love Project collects and sends handcrafted cards to individuals, families, and groups who are experiencing a difficult time in their life/lives.
For the month of February 2014, we are collecting uplifting, cheerful greeting cards for the sweet kids spending time at Santa Monica UCLA medical Center.  These kids were chosen to be a part of this project by Ms. Ashley, a two time cancer patient who has herself received care at this facility.

It may be hard to see in this photo, but I created the background paper using 9 different rubber stamps from the "Just a Little Note to say..." stamp set designed by Emma at My Creative Time. 

The sweet sentiments were paired with the adorable teddy bear from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge.   

You know I typically like to add a ribbon or twine and on this card I chose a pretty red ribbon to compliment the paper and add a pop of color!

I am entering this card in the following challenge:

Thank you for stopping by today.

Until next time.
