Good Morning and a very Happy Saturday
I am very excited to be able to share a card with you today and want to say a huge thank you to the gals over at Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge.
Today I have the honor of being a Guest Designer with this fabulous
group of Talented and Caring Ladies
This group of ladies donated their time and talent by holding a weekly challenge along with collecting cards that are sent off to local Childrens hospitals in hopes of putting a smile on a child that is in the hospital.
Their challenge this week for the kids is
Punches and Die Cuts (for kids)
Three wonderful sponsors are donating some fabulous prizes
Sassy Cheryl $5.00 gift certificate
Crop Stop $15.00 gift certificate
Stamp Shoppe Creations $15.00 gift certificate
WOW - now those are some mighty grand prizes
Let's get out those punches and die cuts and Send a Smile to a child
Sassy Cheryl gave the design team some wonderful images to use in creating their cards. Thank You Cheryl for your sweet images.
For my card I chose to use this adorable image called Bubble Blower
As you can see I went a bit over board with using die cuts and punches.
My image was cut with Spellbinder Medium circle then layered on the large circle which then I layered onto Spellbinder Lacy Circle die cut.
Banner was cut using Whimsy Stamps banner die then I used Jelli Bean Bakers twine for stringing it together. At the bottom of my layout I used Martha Stewart lace border punch then topped it with MFT ticket border die, finishing my card using Whimsy Stamp ticket die and ticket stamps. Papers are My Minds Eye Stella & Rose, layered on PTI card stock. Large flower is from Prima and smaller flower from Whimsy Stamps. I colored the image with Copics Eoo, 02 ,25,34 YG11,13,14 RV21,25 then added Diamond Glaze to the bubble.
What a fun card to create, knowing it will bring a smile to a child who definitely deserves to smile.
I humbly ask each of my friends to take a few minutes this week and
