Post Pals

We're doing something a little different over on The Daring Cardmakers this week and we are hoping that lots of our fellow cardmakers will join in and help us with this wonderful idea.

Post Pals is a fantastic scheme which aims to put a smile on the faces of some very very poorly children indeed. All they ask is that you look at their website, and send a card to one of the hospitalised kiddies you'll find listed there. How easy is that?

The children all have a contact/forwarding address to send the cards to, and a little biography so you can maybe tailor your card for a particular child. Just browse that website and your heart will go out to these little boys and girls - choosing just one to send a card to is sooooo hard!

If you look through the lists you'll also see messages from those who've received cards through Post Pals and read how valued those cards were.

It was Sue's who suggested we do something for Post Pals, so our challenge this week has been to make
Childrens' Cards

you can see the cards we made on our BLOG

This is a UK scheme, but we're sure that there are similar organisations/charities in other countries - or maybe you could donate your card to a charity sale or something like that instead.

Of course I'm sure that Post Pals children would be over the moon to receive a card from another country if you wanted to send one through Post Pals

This is the card I've made to send to one of the Post Pal children

I decided to have a go at a different sort of pop-up card for this dare. The Flying Saucer is cut on the Robo using one of the first templates I made. I've added lots of silver stars and a few tiny Anita's gems for some extra sparkle.

Inside there's a Little Green Man waiting to say "Hello"
But it's OK he's not at all scary!
Please try to join in and support this wonderfully worthwhile scheme along with The Daring Cardnakers
Thank you
