Valentine's Day Cards for St. Judes

Hi Everyone!
Winter over at Winter Wonderland Crafter is hosting a card drive for St Judes and other Children's Hospitals.  Checkout all the details on Winter's Post.  Winter is asking for Valentine's Day cards for children of all ages.  I have 27 cards made so far.  I will be posting them in small groups.  Today's cards were made using digis from Meljen's Designs.

I used the Out of the Box Technique (Blockheads Technique Challenge open for a few more days!)  The dandelion peeks out over the Spellbinders die.  I colored the image with watercolor pencils.  Here is a detail photo.

I made several cards with this image.  Here is another!

And the last card for today also uses a Meljen digi that was colored with markers.  The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up set.

This is what the inside looks like.  The sentiments are from My Sentiments Exactly and Hero Arts.

My Valentine's Day cards are entered in the following fun Challenges:
Meljen's: Anything goes
Incy Wincy: Bold and Bright
Lexi's Creations: Anything goes
The Pink Elephant: Favorite color-RED
Pile it On: fuzzy friends

Stayed turned for more Valentine's Day cards!!  I have some bunnies for the next post.  Have a great day!  Love ya.
