Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge #110: Fall Colors For KIDS!

Hey friends, it’s Saturday and time for another Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge.  This is such a great cause that supports hospitalized children by providing them cheerful cards in times of need.  What’s even better news is they are growing and need your support!  If you are wondering where to send all those cards that you make, please consider donating.  Here’s a link how.

For our challenge we are highlighting Fall Colors for Kids.  I’m sure those of you who follow me know that Fall is my favorite season and I am thrilled to offer some inspiration and see what you will create using Fall Colors For Kids.  As you know our challenges are supported by great sponsors and this week we have:

Lacy Sunshine:  3 images of winners choice

Stitchy Bear:  $10.00 Gift Certificate to Store

Inspired by Stamping:  $20.00 Gift Certificate to Store

Let’s get to some inspiration.  My first card features Lacy Sunshine’s “Eleanor & Pickles Book of Spells” colored with copic markers.  I used a Papertrey ink tag to cut the image out and tied it with some halloween bakers twine.  The spiders are from an older Inkadinkado stamp set and the paper is a combination of KC & Company and DCWV.


My second card uses Stitchy Bear’s “Pumpkin by Craftygirl Creations” also colored with Copic Markers.  The paper is from the new “Fall Blessings” 6 x 6 pack from Carta Bella and cut out with a Simon Says Stamp die.  The circle dies are My Favorite Things as is the border die under the word banner.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my inspiration and would love to see you over at Send a Smile 4 Kids!

  1. I got your blog post in my e-mail and clicked on the SAS link before looking at your challenge entries. When I looked at the images (without looking at who submitted them) I immediately picked your card…you are just SO talented!
