Send a Smile 4 Kids Sweet Treats Challenge

It's time for another great Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge and this time we are asking for cards for kids with Sweet Treats on them. Think cupcakes or ice cream or anything sweet and make a card for a kid and enter our challenge for a chance to win a great prize from our sponsor Mari K Creations. The prize includes the following: pink "stickles",  wood mounted cupcake stamp, 2 clear stamp sets, pink chipboard alphabet, Sweet/ Love rub-ons, 14 pieces 5x7 paper, sweet themed, some with glitter and/or foil. (2 each of 7 designs). Sweet!

For my first Sweet Treats card I used some fun stamps from Inky Antics Honey Pop Collection. The set has stamps you can stamp on the honeycomb paper pad and they POP like the cupcake in the middle of this one. So fun for a child (and adults love them too.) I only added the corners in the center to cover up a mistake I made....

My second card is a really fun new design to me. It is like a card within a card, but still fits in an A2 envelope. The front piece is 8 1/2" by 3 1/2" and the inside piece is 5 1/2" by 6 1/2" and of course each is folded. The inside piece is attached on the back to the front piece. I don't know whose stamps these are but they are perfect for the Sweet Treats theme and of course, I paper pieced the cupcake and ice cream cones to show the different flavors. I added some gems to the inside and a ribbon to complete the card.

So come join us for this fun challenge and remember to send any kids cards you can to Send a Smile 4 Kids to cheer a child in a Childrens Hospital. And visit our challenge blog for all the details on this fun challenge and to see the rest of our design team cards (or click on the links on the side of my blog.)

Karen, I love both of your cards. The image on the first one is so sweet and the cupcake in the inside is a delightful surprise. Love all the blink on the second one. Hugs
