Easter/Spring Cards 4 Kids Challenge 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 Easter/Spring Cards 4 Kids! Create and link any Easter or Spring card for a child and you could win one of our great prizes. We start early for each holiday during the year, because if the cards are going to be donated for our kids, we need to receive them in time to bring or mail to the children’s hospitals we serve before the holiday arrives.

We have three very generous sponsors for this challenge: Squigglefly is giving their winner 3 digis! QKR Stampede is giving their randomly picked winner 5 digis of their choice!  And Oak Pond Creation’s winner gets 1 image 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 Bunny and Egg and Hoppy Easter digital stamps from QKR Stampede. I stamped the sweet bunny on pink patterned paper and the egg on yellow and cut them out. I cut a blue pennant and attached to a yellow polka-dotted card base. I added the green square diagonally and then the yellow pennant with "Hoppy Easter" and some doodling. The bunny was attached with an adhesive spring so he wiggles and wobbles when moved.

My second card features another sweet bunny called Bunny Boo from Squigglefly. I printed her on white cardstock, paper pieced her outfit and added some pink coloring. The card base is spring green with a floral border punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I attached yellow cardstock to the inside of the card and added a Happy Spring sentiment cut with my Silhouette and a Silhouette America cutting file. I finished the card with another flower and a couple gems.  

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenges at Crafty Catz and Sister Act
