#136 Operation Superman Charity Blog Hop
Hi everyone welcome to the "Operation Superman Charity Blog Hop" hosted by ME Sandra I am hosting this hop to gather gifts to donate for a family who lost their father and also to someone who lost her husband. We are all making gifts and or Christmas cards to donate to the family, this is their first Christmas they are spending together without their dad whom everyone called "Superman". Seko "Superman" died tragically of heart failure in front of his wife and 4 young kids. We are hoping to spread some holiday cheer to this family in need.
For my first project I made Superman themed ornaments so the kids can hang on their tree. I got the Superman kids cutting pattern from the KaDoodle Bug Designs "SUPER KIDS" pattern and the Superman logo is from the Silhouette store. I cut them out using my Cameo and also added chipboard to the backs to make them sturdy and added twine to hang them on the tree.
For my 2nd project I made them a family gift to place a photo of them with their dad on his last Christmas which was last year. I made this from a canvas which is 8x10 and I altered it by using all paper products and my ATG gun to adhere. I cut the snowflake and the snowflakes border from the ART PHILOSOPHY Cricut Cartridge and the large rosette flower along with the circle are from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, the "December 25th" stamp is a Cricut companion stamp to Artiste Cricut Cartridge which is called Perfect Fit- Holidays (below).
Stamp set I used for my canvas CTMH Perfect Fit-Holidays
