I Feel the Love Challenge at My Paper Crafting

It's time for the 
I Feel the Love Project Nov./Dec 2012
Madison who started the I Feel the Love Project is a talented designer here at 
My Paper Crafting so each month we support her by making cards as one of our challenges.   
For the challenge I made a card using my Teddy Bear Parade card.  My santa bear is cut at 4 1/2 inches.  The banner is hand cut and the papers are all scraps.  I used twine, buttons and a pearl pen.  

Here is the info about the challenge this month.  

As stated on the home page of CHCC, "We are a not-for-profit, state-of-the-art children’s hospital on a 50-acre campus with a medical staff of more than 525 physicians. In California, we treat more inpatient cases than any pediatric hospital north of San Diego, making us the second largest children’s hospital in the state. 

Our 348-bed facility is one of the 10 largest hospitals of its type in the nation. We are the first children's hospital west of the Rockies to receive Magnet Nursing designation, the highest nursing benchmark in the world, and we are one of fewer than 10 pediatric intensive care units in the nation to have received the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence. We are also accredited by the Joint Commission. We perform more than 11,000 pediatric surgeries a year and our pediatric and neonatal intensive care units have some of the lowest mortality rates in the country while treating some of the sickest kids.

Our Cancer Center is a member of the nationally recognized Children’s Oncology Group, and sees more than 100 new cases a year. Our Willson Heart Center has pioneered pediatric heart care for over 50 years. The mission of Children's Hospital Central California is to provide high quality, comprehensive healthcare services to children, regardless of their ability to pay, and to continuously improve the health and well-being of children."

The I Feel the Love Project will be making Christmas Cards during the months of November and early December to be given to the children who will be spending the holidays at Children's Hospital Central California. We believe that delivering hand crafted cards at a major holiday such as Christmas can promote the well being of the mind, body, and spirit of the children staying at Children's Hospital Central California for the Christmas holiday.  I hope you will join us in making cards for these deserving kids. You will be go happy you did! 

This will be one of our biggest projects to date.  Let's see just how many cards we can collect for this project.  Every month this project puts out a call and every month you all deliver.  If you would like to be a part of this project...
