Working on Cards for (RMH) Kids

I haven't posted for a few days because I've been busy working on cards for the Ronald McDonald House kids.

I made a small batch of cards using the "I stink you're sweet!" stamp from the Pun Fun set -- not my greatest cards, but still cute. If you'd like to see them, give a holler.

My BIG project is making fifty Build-a-Bear cards for the kids! Cynthia Ferenz, a fellow member of the Late Night Stampers group, generously volunteered to cut out a bunch of Build-a-Bears from the dies being offered in the current Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. To my astonishment, she went all out and sent me 50 bears and a huge assortment of clothes and accessories for the critters! I spent Monday evening assembling their little faces, and most of yesterday and today matching up shirts and pants or skirts and doing the glueing for those. Next I'll pick out sweaters, shoes, and boy and girl accessories and finish assembling the bears. And then... I plan to make 50 cards with them! It's a bigger project than I anticipated, but I am having a blast, plus I feel really good it's for a good cause.

Here's an up-to-the-minute photo of the bears:

Stay tuned for BPRs -- Bear Progress Reports!
