For a Mom or Special Female (From the Kids) at Send a Smile 4 Kids


It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is For Moms or Special Females (From the Kids). Create and link any card appropriate for a Mom, and you could win one of our great prizes.

We are doing this challenge now to remind you that now is the time to make and send in cards that the kids in the hospitals we serve who are inpatient on Mother’s Day can give or send to their Mothers or Grandmothers. Having a special card for Mom or any other loved female on this day will make the child and the recipient feel special. You do not have to send in your cards to participate in our challenges, but our kids would sure love it if you did!


We have two very generous sponsors for this challenge: Sami Stamps is giving their winner a $12 gift certificate! And the winner from Dies R Us gets a $15 gift certificate! TEAM S.A.S will also be choosing their favorite cards for our top three and the winners will receive a blog badge and an opportunity to be a guest design team member on a future challenge.

I created an easel card for this challenge featuring the sweet "Covered in Kittens" digital stamp from Sami Stamps. We love kitties at our house so I could not resist this stamp. I printed the stamp on white cardstock and paper pieced her outfit, hair and the cute kitties. I stamped a "purrrrfect" sentiment from Tonic Studios. 

The easel top of the card is held up with a Cat's Whiskers kitty die from Tonic Studios. I cut it in brown and black, offset the two slightly and popped it up with pop dots.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Just adorable. I absolutely love the way you used the kitty die to make the stand up. :-) Don't you love it when a plan comes together. :-)
