Valentine Card Shower



Happy Sunday!!


For several years now
it's been a tradition around here to make Valentines Day Cards for the kids in the Children's Hospitals.

It is a fun event that my friend Melinda at Country dreaming started with a Card Shower blog party..
The cards sent to Melinda go to the Kansas City Children's hospital.

We normally make enough cards to send to Melinda and  to the local hospital here in Baltimore.

This year,  obstacles and busy schedules made it tough to find time to create some cards.
So.. once again, we recruited some help.

Help from some little family members and help from good friends.
.
The Card shower started with some heart shaped lunch



and lots of pink treats!




A small group of girl friends,  some apple moonshine, sangria , scissors, paper, glue,
 and most importantly...  girl talk!


A little Thank You for these lovely ladies
 who took time out of their busy schedules to help out at the last minute.
I really appreciate their help and friendships.


And here are just some of the cards that we ended up with!
It's quite a loot!


These girls are just to creative!





They are all so adorable!




The Kansas City cards are all boxed up and ready to go..
Of course,  I can't forget to send Melinda a little something for all of the trouble that she goes through
putting this event together.
Thank you, Melinda (and Mr Ken)!!!


xoxo
