Send a Smile for Kids

At "Send a Smile for Kids," the challenges are always about making and sending cards to and from kids! They are a charitable blog whose mission is to collect and donate cards for children (and their parents and caregivers) who are inpatient at Children's hospitals. They vary their themes on a bi-weekly basis to help keep their crafters inspired. This week we are blessed to be able to sponsor this amazing challenge! The theme of "our" challenge is to make a card for a mother or other female loved one from a child.

Kathy and I both had a lot of fun with this challenge! She made a darling purse card using the new "In the Bag" set. Every lady knows that a purse is a necessity, right? So why not a purse card, too? I love that Kathy printed the purse on to textured paper, and fussy-cut the image so that the strap of the purse hangs outside the matte. Both give this a great look! The colors are also warm and cheerful!

For my card, I used the newly re-released "Spring Blessings." Teddies always bring a smile to my face, so this digi seemed the perfect choice. I tried to emulate how my girls used to make cards for me when they were little -- always with bright colors, ribbon or rick-rack, punched out shapes, and of course a few sparkly jewel accents. This card couldn't normally go to a young child because of the tiny jewels on the butterfly (choking hazard!), but it definitely could go to a child's mommy!

Now, we would love for you to play along over there in the next couple weeks to enter to win some digis, but more importantly, we'd really love for you to donate whatever cards you make for this challenge to Send a Smile for Kids! Think of the many smiles your cards could generate during a tough time for one or more families! Information about how to donate and guidelines to follow in your card-making can be found right here on their blog.

Wishing you a very blessed Easter weekend as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ!!!
