UPDATE: Winners! Winners! Winners! Coolmompicks announced the winners for this contest today. Guess what: Kristen and Liz couldn’t pick just 9, so we have 12 talented designers to congratulate today. You can purchase the downloadable PDF from the EtsyStore for $3.99. The proceeds go to Children’s Heart Foundation. Get those kiddos a’colorin’!
And if your creative design didn’t win, don’t despair! You can still get involved with our Special Delivery project — Etsy Admin will be delivering your Valentine cards with City-Meals-on-Wheels to NYC elderly this Valentine’s Day.

When we met Kristen and Liz this summer for our CoolMomPicks: Blogs We Love post, we were eager to brainstorm a project to do together. We’re very excited to announce that we are co-hosting a Valentine’s Day Card Design Contest!
Here’s the concept: Little kids like to color in and customize Valentine’s Day cards and hand them out to their cute little friends. We’re putting out a call to artists to submit the black and white line-work for such cards, and the lovely ladies of CoolMomPicks, Kristen and Liz, will pick nine winners. These will be laid out as printable PDFs for moms and dads to purchase in the EtsyStore. All proceeds will go to the Children’s Heart Foundation. We love that we’re able to support a charitable cause, encourage little ones to get creative with crayons, and challenge Etsy sellers to create great designs.
So whether you’re an expert doodler, serious artist type, or somewhere in between, let’s see what you’ve got! — Kristen & Liz
