Do you love to stamp for the little ones in your life? Making cards for kids is so fun and so rewarding, they’re always thrilled with a handmade card.

Children in hospitals for long stays don’t always have someone who can make a handmade card for them, that’s where this wonderful charity steps in to help out.
