My birthday is in May, two of my grandsons have birthdays in May, and my husband’s birthday is in May. What a great month!!:)
So here’s what I’m thinking…..throughout the entire month of May, you can make a comment on my blog, this will get you one chance to win.:)
You can send me a card for a “child” 1 year to 19 years, that will get you two chances to win:)
If you make a comment during May, and send at least one card, you will have three chances to win! 🙂
If you’ve been following me for the last couple of months, you know I am doing volunteer work for Send A Smile 4 Kids, you can find my address and info here. This is a wonderful group of people who make, collect, and donate handmade cards to children’s hospitals:) Any and all cards sent to me will be donated to The Children’s Hospital of Illinois:)
What kind of Blog Candy do I have, you might ask. I have 4 items that I will send out. You will be able to let me know what your wish list is by numbering the letters 1-4. One being what you would like the most, but this is not a guarantee. These items have not been donated, all these items are from my own personal stash of craft items and are unused! So here’s my list of Candy:)
A-From Stampin’ Up, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder. I love this folder! 🙂
B-From Stampin’ Up, Tagtastic, cling mount stamp set.
Samples were part of the catalog display, not included.
C-From Stampin’ Up, You Brighten My Day, cling mount stamp set.
D- From me, die cut outs.
I cut these out myself and took a photo, all are included. I have cats in black, top center and white so you can color yourself. Kittens, in white, below the cats, and black. I have puppies, in Stampin’ Up! Chocolate Chip and white. There are two guitars one in silver and one in black. Bottom left is a boy on a sled in black. I love all of these cut outs, so I thought someone else might like them too:)
So, now, I’m hoping you’re wondering what kind of card to send;) Here are the SAS4Kids suggestions. You could send birthday, thank you, thinking of you, sending prayers, thoughts & prayers, have a great day, encouragement, no sentiment with a cheerful image, Father’s Day is in June, so that would be fine as well. Please no Get Well, some of these children will not get well:( We would like to concentrate on cheerful cards:)
I will announce the winners by June 15th, so please follow me so you will be notified of the winners:) Also, if you send cards, make sure you include your email address and I will be able to notify you personally:)
Now, for some cards! 🙂 All the cards shown today will be from a cardmaker sending cards to Send A Smile 4 Kids, Janelle Klapperich, from SD! 🙂
These are the 3 cards from Janelle Klapperich that I will highlight today. All of them are Father’s Day cards and they are made beautifully! I know a lot of the supplies are from Stampin’ Up!, if you have any questions, I can refer them to Janelle:)
Look how different these two cards look, with the same supplies! 🙂 Well, almost, just changing the color of the sentiment, and the background paper, has given them a totally different feel:) ( in my opinion;) )
I wanted to tell you all to click on either one and it will enlarge, then take a look at the fish eye, it’s awesome! 🙂 I love these cards too:) I think Janelle did a wonderful job choosing her papers! 🙂 Two similar cards, that feel very different, by just changing the color of the paper:)
All of these cards will be enjoyed by the fathers of the kids at the Children’s Hospital of Illinois! 🙂 Thank you Janelle for sending these cards in to me. I have more cards from Janelle to share in a future post:)
Thanks for coming by today! 🙂 Be sure to read about the Blog Candy and leave a comment regarding Janelle’s cards:) See you soon! 🙂
