SAS4KIDS Cards 4 Girls

The current challenge over at SAS4KIDS is calling 4 Girl Cards. I chose to use a digi from one of the sponsors of the challenge Paper Nest Dolls. I loved the bunny slippers on this “Princess and the Pea” image. The papers I used are from Recollections which I have had forever, the sentiment and ribbon are from Stamps of Life. I colored her in Copics and Wink of Stella Glitter Markers (the pea and the tierra). The dies are Card Creator Spellbinders. I don’t like to use any embellishments that can cause a choking hazard to the kids so I often will use Dazzles on my cards to add a little bling.

This card will be going to SAS4KIDS (I am a volunteer shipper — shipping to St. Christopher’s Hospital in Philadelphia, PA and Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, PA).

Words 2 Craft By September Challenge

The September/October Challenge over at Words 2 Craft By is “Every Child Deserves a Hero”. This is the quote to use as inspiration:

Every child deserves a champion — an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists they become the best they can possibly be. Rita Pierson

I am a grandmother to three wonderful human beings. I love spending time with them and seeing their achievements at each milestone in their lives. Yesterday the youngest (6 months old) said MOM for the first time. My other grandson is almost 10 and loves every sport on the face of the earth and stops at nothing to at least try it out. My granddaughter is 7 and loves, loves, loves football. She is on a flag football team this year (yea girl power). My husband and I try to go to all their games. Grandparents play a huge role in being a champion for their grandchildren.

Here is my card which was inspired by the above quote.

I used an image from Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps, colored with Copics. The sentiment was computer generated. Papers from Stamps of Life and the bling is from Hero Arts.

Swinging With The Leaves

The current challenge over at SAS4KIDS is for Cute Fall or Halloween Cards 4 Kids.

sas4kids-fallThis is one of my favorite digi images from Sassy Cheryl’s. I printed her out and colored her up with Copics and Wink of Stella markers (her shoes, socks and hair bow). The papers are from Stamps of Life. No sentiment so that it can be used for any occasion. I punched out a few extra leaves and added them to the card.

Entering and supporting the SAS4KIDS challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Mermaids

I won (random draw) this digi by answering a question in a poll over at Imagine That digistamps (facebook page). I love how the sentiment is designed to hug and fit perfectly along the mermaid. I will be linking this to the monthly challenge which is entitled Summer.

Imagine That digistamp: Mermaid Swimming; colored with Copics; Darice EF; Recollections flower embellishments.

This will be going in the next shipment to SAS4KIDS.

Chocolate

For today’s card I used this adorable little girl enjoying her chocolate which will go to one of the kids at SAS4KIDS.

Imagine-That-Chocolate-GirlThe digital image is from Imagine That digis by Kris (precolored) In person you can see the Wink of Stella I added to the chocolate bar. Papers are from my stash; sentiment and embellishments are from Stamps of Life.

I will be sharing this card with SAS4KIDS and Imagine That digis by Kris.

Sing To The Lord

A very good friend and also my bible study buddy is going through a rough emotional time, grieving over not being able to see her granddaughters regularly. Her only child and his family live an eight hour drive, so they only get to see them three to four times a year. So I suggested she send them cards so they can keep them and the girls will be reminded of her and her husband when they look at them. They are eight and five. I am making her a bunch to have on hand. This is my first one.

Sing-to-the-LordThis sweet digital image is from Imagine That digis By Kris.  The papers are from Stamps of Life and so is the floral die cut border. I thought Psalm 96:1 was perfect with this image. I generated the verse on my computer and the enamel dots are from my stash.

You Rock

First I would like to thank all of our courageous soldiers who have defended our country’s freedom. I especially pray for the families of those who lost someone in the military while serving. Thank you.

I had a little time to spend in the craft room today and had the opportunity to finish (finally) a few cards. I am a volunteer with Send A Smile 4 Kids and have two hospitals that I collect and make cards for. When I saw this image I had to have it to make a few cards for the older kids (it is always a challenge to create cards for the older kids).

YOU-ROCK-SAS4KIDS

5×5 square card using digital image from Imagine That digis by Kris. MFT musical background stamp. Papers from my stash. I will be linking this up to Imagine That blog.

Real Girls Play Football

We celebrated our granddaughter’s 7th birthday yesterday and the theme of her party was “football”. She just finished up basketball and is scheduled for flag football in August. So I searched for a girl playing football digi stamp to make her card and found one on Etsy at 641Digital.

Julianna-7th-birthday

Colored with copics and added wink of stella to the football, hair bows and her pink socks.

Thanks for stopping by.

This Is The Day

I am working on producing 20 cards for Mother’s Day for my church. The pastor sends them to single mothers in our congregation. The requirements are that they have to have a biblical verse either on the inside or the outside of the card, and they are not overly embellished so that they can be mailed with one stamp. I am making 5 of this card:

Mothers-Day-Card-posted-040I used purple in my last card and everything was out on my desk. This image is from Imagine That digis by Kris. The background stamp, flourish and oval dies are from MFT. The inside is stamped Thinking of You, Happy Mother’s Day.

Well onto the next five cards. Thanks for stopping by.
