Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge #107 Clean & Simple 4 Kids

Happy Weekend!  It’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge celebrating Clean & Simple cards 4 Kids.  Joining us today are more really great sponsors offering generous prizes to our winners.  You have until Friday, August 21st to enter.

I also wanted to remind you that Send a Smile 4 Kids is growing by adding more hospitals and more volunteers to take your donated cards.  We hope that after you enter the challenge you consider sending your cards to SAS4Kids for children in need.  Check out how.

Now, let’s get on to those sponsors:

1) Bugaboo – Offering a 7 images of winners choice

2) Lacy Sunshine – offering 3 images of winners choice

3) Kitchen Sink Stamps – offering a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Store

Now how about some inspiration?   My first card uses Bugaboo’s “Rock Star Boy.”   I admit, Clean & simple is not the easiest for me so I got a little rambunctious with my star embellishments which I cut from My Favorite Things dies.  The flames are also from MFT and part of a rock n’ roll die set with a guitar.

My next card is from Lacy Sunshine called, “Eleanor & Pickles Back to School.”  I colored her with Copic Markers and cut her out with a Spellbinders die.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp “To Thine Own Shelf.”  This example is more in the Clean & Simple style.

Thanks for stopping by Send a Smile 4 Kids and playing along in our Clean & Simple 4 Kids challenge!  We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

  1. Kathy, both cards are lovely but the first card rocks !!!

    Did you see that {From the Heart Stamps} is having a DT Call ? You wanted to know whenever we are looking for new designers. Time has come !!
    If you still have time and desire I would be very happy if you participate in it.


    • I did see that Imke and am thinking about it. I have taken on several new teams as well as guest spots. I’ll have to go over and see how many posts are required to see if I have time. I hardly ever see these and I’d hate to miss it though.
