For the Boys 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 the Boys! Boys cards are the type of cards we receive the least of, especially cards for older boys, so we are challenging you to make a card for a boy and enter our challenge. You do not have to donate your card(s) after you enter our challenge, but our boys who are inpatient in one of the children's hospitals we serve would sure love it if you did. 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: Stamping Dragon Designs is giving their winner 4 digis of their choice! And Crackerbox Palace is giving their randomly picked winner a $15 Gift Certificate! Floppy Latte’s Digital Designs winner will receive 2 digis of their choice!  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 above features a funny frog and sentiment from Crackerbox Palace. CAS with dotted patterned paper and fun colors, but I think one of our boys will like it.

Another fun card for a boy with Stamping Dragon Design's Jiggy listening to his Ipod. I paper pieced him, cut out and  attached to a musical background with two shades of blue and some punched musical notes. 

My last card features Draco the Dragon by Glitterbabe of Floppy Latte' Digital Designs. I paper pieced him, cut him out and popped him up over a diamond cut out of a red and blue striped background over a kraft card. I like to try to find a fun sketch or design to try each time I make a card so that even CAS cards are unique.

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenges at Simon Says Stamp and Stamping Dragon Challenges.
