Valentines for St Judes

I created these super simple valentines for Winter Sims' Cards for St Jude's Drive. I cut hearts from a black and silver DCWV paper that has guitars on it and then stamped a simple Happy Valentine's Day. One of the requirements for the drive is to make a card for any age or gender. So I figured guitars are universally cool and black and silver are gender neutral. I included a simple "Have a great day!" message inside. See the rules and more info at the bottom of my post.


Here are some of the guidelines from
St. Jude hospital and a few of Winter's.
(St. Jude's has added a few new rules, so please read carefully.)

* Cards need to be a Valentine theme.

* Cards can't have anything about 'Get Well Soon', 'Feel Better', or anything reminding them of being sick. (Only Valentine Cards)

* Please make cards that can be used for any gender or age.

* Cards must be able to fit into a 4 1/2 X 5 3/4 envelope. (Winter will provide clear envelopes for each card, so there is no need to send one with your card.)

* You can include a message in the inside, but please remember, nothing reminding them of being sick. (Maybe just a Valentine sentiment.) You can also sign your first name but not your last name or where you are from. (St. Jude's rules state that they can't give out the givers info.)

*Winter will be excepting cards for the whole month of January. ( Jan. 1 - Jan. 31, Please don't send any out after that. At the end of the month, Winter will pick random winners for prizes. Winter will be adding more prizes, often. The more cards you send, the more times your name goes into the drawing. Let your kids get involved too! :)

* Please send a piece of paper with your name, address, email address, and the amount of cards you sent.
