Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge #122; For Mom or A Special Female

Happy Weekend!  It’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge celebrating Mom, or that special female in your life!!!   You have until Friday, April 15th to enter.

I 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) Sami Stamps– offering a $12.00 Gift Certificate to Store

3) “Dies R Us”– offering a $15.00 Gift Certificate to Store

Now how about some inspiration?   My first card uses Sami’s Stamp image called, “Floral Girl.”   I used Inktense Pencils to color her up and then edged with Wilted Lilac Distress Ink.  I then put through the We R Memory Keepers die and added pearl pen for additional texture.  My sentiment die is WPlus9.

We hope you will come be and participate at the Special Female or Mom Challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids!

Send a Smile 4 Kids: Challenge 111 – Early Holiday Wishes

Happy Saturday my Friends.  Here at Send a Smile 4 Kids (SAS4Kids) we are celebrating some early Holiday Wishes. SAS4Kids is committed to supporting hospitalized children by providing home-made cards that parents, staff, or even the kids themselves can give during this time of need.  It’s not a sad cause, in fact, we don’t focus on Get Well cards at all, but make the cards happy and fun.   I sure hope you will join both in our challenge and by sending in some cards, especially during this holiday season.  To find out more about donation, look here.

This challenge will run through October 16th and give you a great head start on some holiday card making.  This challenge is sponsored by some very generous donors who are giving away some great gifts for the winning entry.  The design team also chooses their favorite so there are lots of ways to win.

The donors and prizes are:

1) DeeDee Digi:  Prize: $15.00 Gift Certificate

2) Bugaboo: Prize:  7 Digital Images of Winners Choice

3) One Happy Cut: Prize  $15 Dollar Gift Certificate

Wow – thank you sponsors, Send a Smile 4 Kids really appreciates your support.

My first card features “DeeDee Digi’s Merry & Bright.”  This is an adorable penguin pair comes both in line images and pre-colored. There is also some great sentiments in this set and was super fun to color with my Copic Markers. The snow globe is a die from My Favorite Things, the paper pack is “Bundled Up” by Carta Bella, my sentiment is Clearly Besotted, and I cut out glittered snowflakes using the Lawn Fawn snowflake die.

My second card is from Bugaboo “Make it Snappy – Merry Christmoose,”  I also colored this with Copic Markers.  The paper pack is Lawn Fawn”Peace, Joy, Love.” The card base die is Simon Says Stamp.

We can’t wait to see what your early Holiday Wishes look like at Send a Smile 4 Kids!

Sketch Saturday Challenge #367

Happy Saturday!  Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by Dee Dee Digi’s.  That means a $15.00 gift certificate to our random winner.  WooHoo.  You have until Friday, July 3rd for a chance to win.

Here’s the sketch:

367

For my card I chose a pre-colored image by Dee Dee Digi’s called, “Cow Are You?”  I love to color, but sometimes it’s nice to have an image already colored for a quick card. The paper used is Glitz “Black & White” collection as the print put me in the mind of cow markings.  I cut out the pattern paper using a WPlus9 die and the image using a My Favorite Things stitched stackable circle.  I finished off with a few strips of green card stock and called her done.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with using the new Sketch Saturday Sketch!

Happy Weekend!  It’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge celebrating Mom, or that special female in your life!!!  Again, we have some really great sponsors offering prizes to our winners.  You have until Friday, April 17th 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 how about some inspiration?   My first card uses DeeDee Digi’s “Cow Are You.”   Mom and calf are colored with Copic’s with a spun sugar distress ink background.  The rectangle and scalloped dies are Spellbinders and the element on the left is a wood banner I colored using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Mica’s.  The flower is a really old rub on from GinX and the fiber is Close to My Heart. The ribbon band is from Ellen Hutson who sends these with every order.  Isn’t that cool?

Cow - Mothers Day-wm

My next card is from A Day For Daisies called, “Mother I Love You.”  I colored mother and child with Copic Markers and used a My Favorite Things circle die to highlight them on.  The sentiment is from a Claudine Hellmuth stamp set and the flower die is from My Favorite Things which I stamped with the MFT Romantic background.
