Bright Colors for Kids At SAS4Kids
It's time for another new challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids and our theme this time is Bright Colors for Kids. Pick some bright reds, yellows, blues, pinks, purples- anything bright and cheery and make a card that a child would like and enter it in our challenge for a chance to win a great prize or to be part of our Top Three. We have two generous sponsors this time: Little Miss Muffet Stamps is offering their random winner 3 digital stamps of their choice; and Prairie Fairy's prize is a $15 gift certificate!
My first card features an awesome little lady from Little Miss Muffet. She is climbing rocks so I made a background with an embossing folder from Darice that can be giraffe spots or rocks (thanks to my friend Heidi's keen eye for pointing that out.) I decided to make her rope out of baker's twine and added a fun sentiment from Verve.
My second card highlights a couple of fun fun ducks from Prairie Fairy. Aren't they sweet. I paper pieced their vests and put a joke on the bottom of the card. Here is the punch line:
Kids love jokes- even corny ones like this one, so I love to include a joke on a card for a child and they are easy to find on the internet.
I am entering these cards in the "Just for Laughs" challenge at Digital Tuesday and the Anything Goes challenge at Party Time Tuesday.
