Cards for Cancer Patients

I have been keeping busy making cards for St. Vincent's Oncology patients.  As a cancer patient, you are often stuck on the Oncology floor and unable to go to the gift shop to buy thank you cards (my longest stay was five weeks) Meanwhile, your loved ones are showering you with get well wishes, new pajamas and books.  As many people make knit hats to give to the patients, I thought it would be a good idea to make handmade cards.  So this is my second delivery to the Oncology floor and as of yesterday the clinic wants them too.

This is probably the most cards I have ever made and I am just now getting the hang of it.  Great creative exercise.  If anyone wants to join in on the fun, you can always contribute to my stack or contact your local hospital and make your first delivery :)
