One thing I love about crafting is being able to put some of my cards to good use. In the past, I've joined in card drives for soldiers and nursing homes.
This month, I'm joining in Bearly Art's Cards for Cubs March drive to give birthday, holiday and encouragement cards to foster kids. I can imagine how scary it is to be thrust into someone's home and family when you've lost your family at least temporarily and maybe permanently. And a card won't make it all better, but it might make one day a little better if you know someone is thinking of you on your birthday.

I've loved Pooh Bear since I first saw him on TV when I was a kid. I loved his little round self, his penchant for honey, his slow way of talking and his little giggle. When my kids were little, they had the collection of Pooh stories and we read them over and over. I even have video of my daughter doing a play she wrote for the characters and her Pooh impersonation. So, when I saw a Make Cards Today Pooh Bear magazine that was available overseas, I bought it in a hot minute so I could have the stamps and printed pieces of the friends from The Hundred Acre Wood. It took a long time to get here, but I'm so happy I ordered it!
It sat for two days before I could create with it and now, of course, I can't stop. For this card, I used a watercolored background (using Tombow markers) I had already stamped and made a fun cut on the front panel that I saw on FB.
