February Spark a Smile

Our February Spark a Smile was hosted at the Home of Hope, a faith-based rehabilitation center for  women with drug and alcohol addictions. They were so gracious and welcoming… they even served us dinner! We had a great turn-out, with four brand-new faces! 
Marlene brought pre-cut/pre-embossed pieces to create these cute Valentines. Even with the same materials, they all turn out so different! 

Of course, some people skipped the pre-packaged pieces to craft their own creations! Marlene’s mom came to visit from Oregon and stamped this pretty heart and hand-colored the image!

Young Talissa created this clever scalloped card!

Her big sister Tiana hand-made some fluttery creatures.

It was Desiree’s first visit to Spark a Smile, but that didn’t stop her at all! She created a whole stack of gorgeous cards!

Another new face, Janet, couldn’t bear to cover up the pretty pink glitter paper, so she simply punched a scallop and added a flower and a small XOXOXO! Love it.

Always on the lookout for recyclable items to add to my cards, I flattened a Hershey’s Kiss wrapper and made it into a brad for the center of my flower! 

There were so many great cards, it was hard to pick just a few to feature… so check here for the rest!

We packaged up the stack of 90+ cards…

…and hand-delivered them to Oasis Pavilion, an out-of-home rehabilitation center here in Casa Grande! They were so grateful to receive such nice cards to distribute on Valentine’s Day.
Please join us this Wednesday, March 9th, at Yang and Horsley Dentistry, to craft your own cards! We’ll be making cards for the kids at the Pediatric department at the hospital. Our theme this month is April Fools’ (early) so bring your best jokes and funny sayings to help create some laughter!
