Aything Goes at Send a Smile 4 Kids!

It’s Saturday so it must be time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is everyone’s favorite- Anything Goes 4 Kids! You can make and link any kind of card as long as it is appropriate for a child. And remember we are a card only challenge- cuz that is what we are all about- cards for our kids!

We have three very generous sponsors this week: Delicious Doodles is giving their winner 4 digis of their choice! And Joan’s Gardens is giving their randomly picked winner a $25 Gift Certificate! Dollar Graphic Depot’s winner will receive 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.

My first card features a super cute Bee and Flower from Delicious Doodles which I paper pieced with several papers. I cut him out with a lacey circle die from Spellbinders, layered it on another yellow lacey circle and wove black and white baker's twine in and out before tying a bow at the top. It is a fun way to frame a CAS image.

My second card features two sweet Skating Kids by Alice Smith for Dollar Graphics Depot. I created an oval skating rink for them with some silver paper and cut the bottom of the card in that shape as well. The sweet images were pre-colored so I just cut them out and attached, then added a perfect sentiment (from Crackerbox Palace) to complete the card for one of our kids.

I am entering these cards in the challenges at Stamp n doodle (Anything Goes) and The Stamping Chef (blue, white and silver.)
