Merry Monday #166, SAS4Kids and guests

I have another card! 🙂  I think I’m catching up with my schedule……for right now anyway;)  We’ll see how it goes:)  So today, I have a card for Merry Monday #166.   This is a two week challenge for the Summer.  Finally, I’m not posting my card on the last day! 😉  Here’s their challenge for the next two weeks:

166I know, penguins are so cute! 🙂  However, if I have a penguin stamp, I have no idea where it is:(  But not to worry, I went over to Doodle Pantry and used a digital image:)  I actually made a special request for this set it’s called, Winter Birthday.  I have a number of birthdays during the Winter months, so I figured other people must too:)  Now with most of my cards going to Send A Smile 4 Kids, it’s really nice to have a Winter Birthday set:)  So here is my card for this challenge:



Isn’t this too cute! ?  The other main image in the set is a snowman with a birthday cake.  The set includes some patterned paper, some plain papers, and some embellishments.  I used the patterned paper, the solid papers, the sentiment and the penguin, all from the same set.  I printed the penguin on my matte photo paper, trimmed it to the size I wanted, and then ran it through my Big Shot with an embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! (retired).  This card has been approved by all my grandchildren, at least the ones that live with me;)

Oh, dear, I almost forgot!  I’m going to enter this card in the  ANTS IN MY PANTRY DIGITAL CHALLENGE 7, over at Doodle Pantry.  They’re have a Sale going on right now, so go check them out here! 🙂

Now, on to my first guest, Terri Rizzo.  Terri sent cards in to me for Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALook at this cute card! 🙂  I don’t know where Terri got this image, but I think it’s great for kids!  Here is a photo of the back also.  It has a little pull out that holds the card upright! 🙂  So simple, yet I’ve never thought to do it!  I know one of our kids will love this for their birthday! 🙂


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAAnother fun card from Terri:)  The one on the left looks like the cow and the words are both tipping over.  I wonder if she did that on purpose?


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERATerri definitely has a sense of humor:)  I know this image came from Doodle Pantry, but I looked everywhere and can’t find it in the store.  If I find it, I’ll update this post:)


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAOne more from Doodle Pantry.  This one is called, Toy Truck Ants.  I own this set too, I love it! 🙂




I know all of these images came from Mo’s Digital Pencil.  They come b&w and you have to color them yourself.  The one on the left is bubbles boy.  The blue and red cards are Superduper Boy, and Superduper Girl.  I love all these cards!  Great cards for kids and wonderful coloring by Terri! 🙂


Just a few more cards, I want to squeeze in some cards from Bev Schoepke.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis is a great card too:)  Nice bright colors:)  Bev sent multiples of each of these cards, she also sent some Christmas cards that I’ll share at another time.  Thank you Bev and Terri for a wonderful group of cards!:)  All cards are appreciated by me and the kids we serve at Send A Smile 4 Kids!! 🙂


Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I hope you enjoyed all the cards I was able to share! 🙂  Hope to see you again soon:)
