Anything Goes 4 Kids at Send a Smile 4 Kids!

It’s time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids and this time our theme is Anything Goes 4 Kids.  We have three very generous sponsors this week so you have three chances to win a random prize! Kenny K. is giving their winner 3 digis of their choice! Stamp Shoppe Creation’s prize is a $15 gift certificate! And Prairie Fairy is also giving their random winner a $15 gift certificate!   TEAM S.A.S will 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.

My first card above just makes me go awwwww- sweet...The little girl and boy are from Prairie Fairy and they are just so sweet I had to use the Sweet sentiment from Crackerbox Palace with them. They remind me of my little girl and boy when they were so sweet and young and still got along with each other- later they didn't for years and now as adults they get along just great. I cut the fun shape of the card free hand after cutting and attaching the white piece. I printed the sweet kids, did some coloring with my copics and paper pieced their outfits. 

I decided to make the monkey from Stamp Shoppe Creations a silhouette on this card. I  love silhouettes and sometimes I just decide to color an image all black and make it one. The fun sentiment is also from Stamp Shoppe Creations and I punched some vines on the sides with a Martha Stewart punch. I added some sparkly vine bling to complete the card.

My last card features a girl reader from Kenny K. I thought my older girls in a children's hospital might appreciate the sentiment and the fun image. Of course she was paper pieced  mostly with a little coloring and doodling too.

I am entering these cards in the challenges at Crafting for All Seasons School Days/For a Child, and Divas by Design for a child, and Celebrate the Occasion for shaped cards. 

Stamping smiles for our kids, Karen

Love that fab paper piecing on the third card, and the first one is just so sweet. That monkey silhouette is such fun, and I have a grandson who would absolutely flip over it. :-D
