I wanted to do a unique make me happy. For Valentines day I would love to give my four year old daughter some trading cards. She has been making them and trading them for awhile now and loves getting them in the mail.

This is how it will work. I will place a list of cards she would love here. For every person who MLH I will make you happy. Please don't get too high tech on me as I am limited in my drawing skills. Also please state if you would like a specific medium as I do collage work as well.

So in your post do as usual and post how you will make her happy and how you want me to MYH. Have fun! This will be really cool. There can be multiple people doing a certain theme so if one gets taken that you would like to do, go for it! They will all be different and she will. Love them all! When you are through PM me for my address. Please mark your envelope MAke Lucy Happy. I think she would be so excited to open them all herself on Valentines Day!

MLH with:
angry bird drawing or painting
Littlest pet shop animal drawing or painting
Beautiful girl drawing or painting
Labyrinth the movie theme
Secret of Nihm movie theme
Coraline drawn or painted
Anything Egypt themed

01-20-2012, 08:28 AM
Aw, this is cute. I'll have a go at Angry Birds :)

01-20-2012, 10:01 AM
What would Make You Happy

01-20-2012, 10:04 AM
Hmm, anything a bit spooky/creepy/Halloween themed.

01-20-2012, 11:01 AM
I will make Lucy happy with a beautiful girl card. Will you make me happy with a surprise card for my kiddo, Emily? Fun idea, Liz & Happy Valentine's Day to Lucy!

01-20-2012, 11:38 AM
Yeah! Thanks to my two pals so far. She will be so happy. I will make you both happy.

01-20-2012, 11:43 AM
I would love to make Lucy happy with a labyrinth card and I would love to get the same in return! I wanted to marry Jareth when I was younger :-)

01-20-2012, 01:07 PM
Ok! Labrinth card it is. Wish me luck! I promise to do my best. Cracks me up every time I watch it with her when I see David Bowie. She always says mom why are you laughing. It's just too funny to see him in all of those outfits with that long mullety hair.

01-20-2012, 04:36 PM
Here's mine :)


01-20-2012, 08:04 PM
I have a soon to be 4 year old granddaughter and I would love to Make Lucy Happy!

I can cross stitch her a unicorn with a wreath of flowers around its neck. What would be the favorite color of Little Miss Lucy?

In return could you draw me a scene with a cactus or a field of cacti? If it is not within your comfort zone let me know and we can figure out something.

On a completely different subject...............Would you mind telling me Lucy's middle name? My daughter is naming her newest addition Lucy but she is having trouble finding the perfect middle name. Of the two people I have asked one was a nickname and the other had no middle name!

01-20-2012, 10:04 PM
Her middle name is actually Pearl. Lucy Pearl. Her favorite color is red she says. Yikes. Please do as you will with it though because I can't invision what you are saying with red. So you go with the flow. Thanks so much. Sounds lovely. I will totally make you a card with a cactus. Thanks so much for being part of this fun thing!

01-21-2012, 12:48 AM
I will MLH with an Egyptian Themed ATC! Could I please have your Peeking Bunny if it is still available?

01-21-2012, 12:59 AM

Like you I can't invision it with red. Think I will go with pink flowers and a red border since it is for Valentines Day.

When you get a chance please pm your address as all I have left to stitch is the flower wreath and the border so it should be ready to mail in a few days.

Looking forward to a cactus card! I know it will be a great addition to my cactus collection!

01-21-2012, 11:22 AM
Sure thing Mooseyy! Thanks for peeking into my gallery. Just PM me your address and I'll get him out to you!

01-21-2012, 06:23 PM
I'll MLH by drawing her Coraline. I'll do my best to get it to her for Valentine's Day.

Could I have the "Freak a Deak" from your gallery if it's still available. Or if not please could I have an Illinois card? Collage would be fun. :)

01-21-2012, 09:44 PM
Sure! Freak a deak is all you!! Thanks so much for making a Coraline card!

01-21-2012, 11:22 PM
My 10yr old daughter, Sienna has a Littlest Pet Shop card for your Lucy!
And in return, we would love to get a cat card from you or Lucy (I saw a few in your gallery).

01-21-2012, 11:36 PM
Ok, a cat card it is! Thanks so much!

01-22-2012, 01:51 PM
Love the idea, I want to make your little girl happy too. I will make her an unicorn. :)
You can make me happy with a giraffe, a penguin or a bunny.

01-22-2012, 02:14 PM
Thanks halla!!! I will surprise you with one of those three. PM me your address!

01-22-2012, 03:58 PM
This is my card for Lucy. I hope she'll like it.


01-22-2012, 04:55 PM
That is amazing! So beautiful. She will love it so much! Thank you.

01-22-2012, 08:09 PM
Here is Lucy's Labyrinth card! It will go out tomorrow!

01-22-2012, 10:19 PM
Awesome!! Me and my sisters used to crack up at that part. Love it! She will love it too! Thanks a ton!

01-23-2012, 12:58 AM
I'm drooling over Halla's card!!!

01-23-2012, 11:27 AM
Halla's unicorn is beautiful.

Not sure Lucy is going to like mine................

01-23-2012, 01:45 PM
Xstitching and painting are totally different. She will love yours because it is defferent. No reason for feeling like that silly. She will love it!

01-23-2012, 03:50 PM
Xstitcher your cross stitched work are excellent. I wouldn't worry, if I were you. :)
My grandmother made me a cross stitch piece when I was a kid and it was a big treasure for me.

01-23-2012, 06:19 PM
My card went postal today!

01-23-2012, 08:47 PM
I would love to add to Lucy's collection :)
This is a darling idea and simply irresistible!

I am not sure what theme yet.
When I sit down to do the art I will choose than.

Oh...you don't need to make me anything in return.
It will be a delight to send it as a gift :yes:

01-24-2012, 07:01 AM
So great to have you! She is going to love this on so many levels and I must admit I am a bit jealous about all the cards she will be getting!

01-24-2012, 10:09 PM
Itching to make someone happy if they would do me the pleasure of making Lucy a valentine surprise!

01-24-2012, 11:20 PM
i'm in

01-24-2012, 11:39 PM

And a cat would MMH!

01-28-2012, 10:40 AM

01-28-2012, 12:42 PM
Hmm I love the most hdrawn/hpainted cards, but anything really is fine for me. :)

01-28-2012, 04:23 PM
Whew-I'm needing a break from my swaps this morning. Can I offer your daughter a Secret of NIMH card? Jeremy Crow is my fav- hope Lucy likes him too!
Saw a cute mouse in your gallery- a mouse would sure MMH :)

02-05-2012, 11:05 PM
Heck yeah she would love it. Thanks so much. What would make you happy?

How about something like "seriously" or "your life"?

PM me your address and I'll mail out Lucy's card. :)

02-05-2012, 11:50 PM
Saw the thread and would love to do two things:

1--If she likes to "trade," I am interested in her Eye Flower card. She may peruse my gallery at her convenience. This could also wait until after Valentine's Day as she is already getting a lot. Of course, interest in *her* card might MLH, but I wouldn't want to overshadow all of her cards already.

2--I would like to MLH. Not sure a theme yet. I did an Angry Birds swap a few months ago and I can always revisit that. As for what would MMH...let me think on that. I'll decide by the time you reply to this post.

02-06-2012, 12:21 AM
Scrappea I will have her look in your gallery tomorrow. Thanks! She will be super excited to trade you. Fun stuff in your gallery. Secondly, thanks for wanting to make her happy. Is going to be so fun to watch her open them all. She loves trading cards. I am sure whatever you decide to make she will love. Thanks so much! You let me know what would MYH when you are ready.

02-10-2012, 11:44 AM
Thank you so so much to everyone who was part of this. The amount of cards she received is amazing. I will try and photograph them all and post it. She is going to be so surprised. Cards from all over the country and all over the world. I feel the love on this site so much and it's a great feeling. Thanks so so much!

02-10-2012, 04:01 PM
My unicorn and owl are on the move, but I don't know if you'll receive them by Valentines day, with all this snow. :(
But I hope she will like them all the same!

02-10-2012, 04:33 PM
Mailed out the traded card today.

I just finished my Angry Birds card. I want you to be surprised, too, so I'll post a pic after the 14th. I rather like it. That card will go out tomorrow. IL is not far from MI and we only have drifting snow flurries, so here's hoping.

02-13-2012, 02:43 PM
My card arrived today!! Thank you i love it! Hope you receive Lucy's soon as I posted it over a week ago Jen x

02-15-2012, 03:33 AM
Sooooooooo...how did it go???

02-15-2012, 08:31 AM
All cards were opened and she was so so excited. She felt so special having all of these wonderful artists making cards just for her and of all of the things she loved. We filled up quite a few pages in her book and she is loving it. I am so so grateful to everyone for taking time from your busy life and art making to do something so kind for a little girl. You truly made her day. I am going to be posting some pictures very soon. Hopefully today. Thanks everyone so so much!!

02-15-2012, 11:42 AM
Happy to hear your surprise was a success!

Lucy is a very lucky little girl to have a wonderful mom like you!

02-15-2012, 12:55 PM
What a cool thing to do Liz. I haven't been on the forums for a while, so I missed this, but props to you! Sounds like you're keeping busy now.:D

02-15-2012, 04:12 PM
Nice to hear we made her happy. :)

02-16-2012, 04:03 AM
Yay! Oh, I definitely want to see pictures!
