I made 132 Christmas cards for my local hospital. Theda Clark gives them to any/all patients in the hospital during Christmas. They will be delivered by hand or on the patients meal trays. It is nice when a patient can have a little holiday cheer during a bad time in life.
All cards are embossed using cuttlebug and sizzix. It is nothing fancy, just simple and elegant. Some I added colored stickles and a few stamped images. The inside is stamped with a Christmas greeting and signed Santa. Since I did not want to boast it was my family doing this, I used Santa. It doesn't mater who gave the cards only that they are given out. I hope this brightens the patients day and makes being in the hospital on Christmas a little bit easier.

What a great idea! To bad I didn't think of it. Given time I might have. Everything was designed in ds and cut on the cricut. I used george, lyrica, and paper doll carts. Using chip board 6 x 12 for the base and heavy construction paper for the days/month/numbers. Squares are 1.25 x 4, 1.5 x 4.25 and 1.75 x 5. I used my xyon machine for the numbers and words. I had trouble transferring the words, so I used painters tape. Worked like a charm just like transfer tape for vinyl. I made a doll for each holiday. At least tried to. If you note the calendar days show the holiday in that month. The ones without holidays I just picked a date. Hope you enjoy the calendar and it sparks your creativity.
