Red Rubber Designs Blog Hop

There is something special going on at Red Rubber Designs this month. Our theme is Once Upon a Child and we are teaming up with the Sunshine Mail Foundation to sponsor their card challenges for the month of  February. 

You can find out more about the challenges here

If you are unfamiliar with the Foundation, they provide children in need with comfort, support and joy through free Sunshine Mail Care Packages.  Sunshine Mail is filled with handmade cards, care essentials and other age appropriate items and delivered to children in hospitals, homeless shelters and in foster care.

You can find guidelines for donating cards here.

Our featured stamp set this month is a sweet little set called Wonder and Joy.

Wonder and Joy
 This set is so cute that I had to make 2 cards that I will be sending in to the Foundation.

Hoping your day . . .Is something to smile about!
 Papers are from the Just Like Dad paper stack. Ink is Palette Beaux Arts Blue , Noir and Landscape.
Grass stamp from the Mountain Scenery set.

Hoping your day . . . Is something to smile about!
Papers from the Miss Moxie Patterned Cardstock Collection. Ink is Palette Orangerie, Noir and Landscape. Grass stamp from the Mountain Scenery set.

In keeping with the theme of Once Upon a Child, we are going to have a game of hopscotch! Just hop to each blog and leave your footprint (comment). One blog (scotch) will have the "stone" (wonder which one?) and we will randomly draw a winner from everyone who left their footprint (comment) at that blog. The winner will receive the February Spotlight Stamp absolutely FREE.

We are happy to include 3 members of the Sunshine Mail Foundation Design Team to our hopscotch grid.

I am the last scotch on the grid. Here is the list in case you missed one. Hope you had fun and will consider sending a handmade card or two to the Foundation and put a little joy into a child's day.

So cute! I love how the print on the paper makes a perfect fish!

Both your cards are so bright and colorful. Yes, we used the same stamps! Like minds, I guess. I like what you did with these.

So cute, Sarah. Love this stamp. Guess we all had the same idea. Love how you used the little fish from the paper to double as an embellie.
