We are always thrilled when Jen McGuire comes to visit us and today's visit is a little special! Jen is kicking off our "Bring A Smile To A Child" fall campaign! What is this you ask? This is a great charity program we started years ago with Crafting For a Cure where we ask our readers to send in child and youth themed cards that we deliver to hospitals throughout North America. These cards brighten the day of any child at a time they are facing some of life's greatest challenges. Would you like to join us and donate a card? Here are the details...
1. Create a child/youth themed card with an inspiration message (please avoid "get well") and either sign it with a message from you or leave it blank.
2. Send the card, with an envelope, to us at:
Scrapbook & Cards Today
139 Church Street,

Jen was sweet enough to create a video sharing just how she created this card and will be donating it to our "bring a smile to a child" campaign as well! Enjoy!
Jen is also celebrating this wonderful day devoted to cardmakers by participating in a blog hop showcasing the new Julie Ebersole's stamps with Ellen Hutson! You can follow along from Jen McGuire's blog here.
