Send a Smile 4 Kids: Challenge: For Dad or Special Male

Happy Saturday!!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far, I know I am.  It’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge celebrating the men in our lives.  We have some really super sponsors this week too.  You have until Friday, May 20th to enter.

After you enter your card at Send a Smile 4 Kids, please consider donating it to some needy children who are hospitalized. We are growing and need your support.  Check out how.

Now, let’s get on to those sponsors:

1) Doodle Pantry– offering a $10.00 Gift Certificate to their store

2) Die-versions– offering a $15.00 Gift Certificate

Now how about some inspiration?   My card today uses “Gone Fishing.”  With Father’s Day right around the corner, this is a fabulous set to use for your cards.  The background is a Simon Says Stamp background using versamark ink.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and distressed the edges to finish off my card.

Send a Smile 4 Kids: Animal Cards 4 Kids

It’s Saturday and time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge. Today we are celebrating Animal Cards 4 Kids!  Seems like most kids like animals so this should be a great challenge.

You have until Friday, July 10th to enter, which means an extra week!

I also want to share more great news that Send a Smile 4 Kids continues to grow and has added even more hospitals and volunteers to take your donated cards.  With OWH closing on August 1st, we sure hope you’ll consider donating some cards for kids in need.  Check out how.

Now, let’s see what this week’s sponsors are generously donating:

1) Crackerbox Palace – offering 3 digital images of winners choice

2)  All Dressed Up – offering 2 digital images of winners choice

3) DeeDee Digi – offering $15.00 Gift Certificate to store.

My first card features “Friendly Lion” from Crackerbox Palace.  I wanted the image directly on my card base for a clean & simple card. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps called, “Film Strip Sentiments.” I finished off with a few black pearls and called it a card.

Be careful when you are coloring directly onto your card base with copic markers because they will bleed through if you don’t open your card or use a barrier between the layers when you color.  Ask me how I know!

My second card uses an adorable image by All Dressed Up called, “Little Treasure.”  I used my Copic’s in the trending colors of mint and coral and a great new Pebbles 6 x 6 paper pack called, “Cottage Living”.  The stitched base is a die from Simon Says Stamp and the circle die is My Favorite Things.  The sentiment is from The Craft Spot, called, “Tiny Tag 2.”

Thanks for your generosity sponsors!!

Now how about some inspiration?   My first card uses Dollar Graphics Depot image called, “Kids Playing”.  I can’t get over that you get five (5) images in this set for $1.00.  Amazing.  This sweet boy is colored with Copic Markers.  I created the background with my B91 & V20 markers then faded it out with the zero to give it a patchy cloud like look.  The paper is from Doodle Bug’s, “Take Note” 6 x 6 pack and the sentiment and star are from Lawn Fawn, “Life is Good.” stamp set.

My second card is Henry from Crafty Sentiments.  I colored him with Copics and cut out a frame from My Favorite Things dies to highlight the image. The card base was cut out with the stitched die from Simon Says Stamp using Amy Tangerine’s, “Plus One” collection.  The sentiment is from The Craft Spot.
