My next card uses a digital image from “Crafty Sentiments called, “Summer Breeze”.   I colored her with Copic Markers and cut her out using a bracket die from my stash.  The “You” sentiment and background paper is cut with Simon Says Stamp dies.

Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge #103; For The Girls

Happy Weekend!  It’s time for the new challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids and this time it’s, “For The Girls!”   We have some really great sponsors offering prizes to our winners.  You have until Friday, June 19th to enter.

I also wanted to remind you that Send a Smile 4 Kids needs your cards for hospitalized kids.  With Operation Write Home closing on August 1st, I sure hope you will consider sending your donated cards to Send a Smile 4 Kids. Here’s how to donate.

Here’s our sponsors:

1) Flat Friends – offering 6 Digital Images of Winners Choice

2) The Paper Shelter – offering 3 Digital Images of Winners Choice

Now how about some inspiration?   My first card uses Flat Friends “Summer Swim.”  I colored the image with Copic Markers and used Echo Parks “Walking on Sunshine” 6 x 6 collection.  The fish and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn’s “Critters of the Sea.”  The dies are My Favorite Things Ovals and Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangles.  For the waves I broke out my old EK Success wave punch.  I really need to get a wave die.

My next card is from The Paper Shelter called, “Sophie in the Country.” I colored Sophie with Copic Markers and cut her out with a Sizzix keyhole die. The paper pack is from Amy Tangerine’s “Rise & Shine” collection.  I stamped an Impressions Obsessions distressed background with Hero Arts Shadow Ink.  The sentiment and label is from Simon Says Stamp and the card is finished with a few enamel dots.

Send a Smile 4 Kids: Punches and/or Die Cuts

Happy Saturday!  That means it’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge and we are having fun with punches and dies.  I can remember a few years ago when it was not common to have a die for almost every stamp made and that you needed an entire wall to store all your punches.  Thankfully, dies are thin and I’m not afraid to admit, I have a few!

As usual for we have some really great sponsors this week.  You have until Friday, March 6th to enter.

Also, a quick reminder that Send a Smile 4 Kids is growing and has added more hospitals and volunteers to take your donated cards.  We hope you’ll consider donating some cards for kids in need.  Check out how.

Now, let’s get on to those sponsors:

1) Flat Friends – offering 6 digital images of winners choice

2) Paper Shelter – offering 3 digital images of winners choice

3) Sassy Studios – offering 4 digital images of winners choice

My first card uses Flat Friends “Love Heart”.  He’s colored with Copic’s and the paper is Carta Bella “Boy oh Boy” collection.  The “bubble die” is My Favorite Things and the curved die he’s sitting on is the “curved edge” die from Simon Says Stamp.  The love sentiment is Paper Smooches.

The next card features “Soccer Star” from Paper Shelter. He’s colored with copics and the paper is and oldie but a goodie from Deja Views called “Sports”.  The circles dies are from My Favorite Things.

Game on-wm
 My last card features Sassy Studios “Boom Box” who I also colored with copics and used the Amy Tangerine “Plus One” collection.  Rectangle die and Sentiment are My Favorite Things.
