Valentine Cards


Some of you might be aware that I have had a stressful few weeks since Christmas between losing a family member and starting a new job so as you can imagine I have not felt very creative. Never-the-less I did find some time and creativity to make valentine cards this year.

I hope you like them!








Christmas Cards for 2017


Here are the various Christmas cards I made this year. Some are my creation and some are from classes.

In total I think I made about 70 this year but these are the ones that made the cut.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them because they kept me very busy.





Merry Patterns Stamp set


To my surprise I won a stamp set this week called Merry Patterns designed from Stampin Up from one of their demonstrators named Gloria you can find her classes on Meet Up.

I’m looking forward to the many different cards I can make with this set.

Thanks Gloria


Halloween Cards


Here are this year’s Halloween cards. Aren’t they cute?




This is a little treat I made my cousins that live locally and Scott co-worker’s.


I found the ghost and witch images here for free but I made the pumpkin one myself.



Thanksgiving Weekend


Here are a couple of cards I made in a class that are perfect for Thanksgiving weekend. One is for Scott t take to his family and the other is for me to take to my hostess.

Here are two cards for kids birthdays that are coming up in a few weeks, I really like how they turned out.

Have a great Thanksgiving Weekend everyone and don’t eat too much turkey!



Stamp Camp


On Saturday I took a class called Stamp Camp in Markham. It was my second time going and I had lots of fun. We made 10 cards and lunch was included. The next Stamp camp is in January 2018 if you’re interested in joining us go to the web site listed below.








Cards for Sick Kids Hospital


Their is a program a Sick Kids Hospital where crafters like me can make and donate homemade cards for the kids or for the kids to give loved ones. I spent much of my childhood at Sick Kids and love the fact I can give back this way. I have made multiples of these cards and they are all going to Sick Kids Hospital. If you’re interested in donating cards yourself please see information below.



Our Child Life Specialists try to ensure that children who have to spend the holidays in the Hospital have as normalized an experience as possible. Part of many holidays is the act of giving cards to people you care about and sometimes you just want to give someone a card to say THANK YOU!

There is no limit to how creative your card can be and cards can be given out to people of all ages! Patients have many people they come into contact with that could be the lucky recipient of the blank card you have made for them:

  • Siblings
  • Parents
  • Extended family members (grandparents, aunts/uncles, etc)
  • Friends (including furry friends/pets!)
  • Hospital staff
  • Volunteers
  • Teachers

Please leave the INSIDE OF THE CARD BLANK so that patients can personalize the card with their own messages and don’t forget the envelope!

Some popular themes for greeting cards at this time of year include:

      • Birthday cards
      • Mother’s Day
      • Father’s Day
      • Thank you cards
      • Graduation
      • Christmas

Dropped off at any time our Main Information Desk in our Atrium, which is accessible from the 170 Elizabeth Street entrance or mailed if you prefer to;
