Teen Girl Cards

It's  been a while so it's time to donate some cards to Send A Smile 4 Kids
That is what I will work on for the next several weeks. 
Be sure to see the comment that follows after the cards to see how the cards are used. 
I think it's a pretty awesome organization!

Send A Smile 4 Kids is a charitable organization that collects donated handmade cards to distribute to children while they are in-patient at the following Children’s Hospitals: the University of Iowa Children's Hospital, Iowa City, IA, the Blank Children's Hospital in Des Moines, IA, the Sandford Children's Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD, and the B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto and the Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, in Canada.  The cards are used to bring cheer not only to the kids but to their families as well. The kids can also use the cards as "Thank You" notes to give to their nurses and doctors or to give to parents or relatives on special days like birthdays or Mother's or Father's Day. How lovely is that??!

The word "smile" was my first attempt at using the Cricut. I think I will have fun using that gift!
