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:)
This is going to be a quick post today. Happy Mother’s Day to everyone!! 🙂
I wanted to show you a card I made for Merry Monday #157:) Their challenge this week is to use embossing.
Well, of course, an embossed Christmas card! 😉 My card will be added to the Christmas box for Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂 You can’t start too early for Christmas! 🙂
It looks easy, right? Well, it was pretty easy, but I used a bunch of supplies and it had lots of steps, I was surprised, but I love it! 🙂 I used an embossing folder by Darice, I don’t know the name, but it’s snowflakes;) I used all paper by Stampin’ Up! The background and highlight paper is Soft Sky. The Designer Series Paper is called All Is Calm, it’s from last Christmas, but I love it so much, I bought a bunch of it! It’s on sale right now at Stampin’ Up! I used the DSP for the left side column and the scarf. The hat is just Pear Pizzazz, cut with a die from Lawn Fawn.
The whole snowman set if from Lawn Fawn, it’s called Making Frosty Friends. The hat is cut with a die, I drew the line on the hat with a Stampin’ Up! Basic Black marker. I cut some white to match the hat and made the puffy hat ball, and highlighted it with Stampin’ Up! Dazzling Details. I don’t think you can see the sparkle very well here:( The scarf on the bird is a SU marker in Pear Pizzazz.
For the sentiment I used Short & Sweet, retired. It fit perfectly with the Framelits-Bitty Banners, retiring this year. To highlight it, I just fussy cut a border with Lost Lagoon. Wow, next time I’m just making a supply list! 😉 lol
I think I’ll make more of these for the kids at Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂 I can use all kinds of different colors for boys or girls:)
Thanks for coming by today! 🙂 Be sure to check out the Blog Candy info! Also go by Send A Smile 4 Kids and check out their blog! 🙂 Merry Monday #157 is ending today (May 10th) , but there will be a new challenge tommorow (May 11th). I’ll be back soon with Father’s Day cards! 🙂
