Freshly Made #199, Friday Mashup #221, SAS4Kids

Hi everyone, I’ve been busy, as always! 🙂  The kids start school this week, so they’re taking time today to be especially loud!  It will probably take me hours to get this posted!  Oh, what fun! 😉  Right now we are listening to two different types of music, kids songs and Christmas music! lol  Never a dull moment here! 😉

I have a guest with me today, Nanci Simmons from FL:)  I’ll be showing her cards after I post mine:)  I’m going to be posting my card to three different challenges, a first for me! 🙂  I usually post one card for each challenge, but I’m pressed for time this week:(

The challenges I will be entering are:  Freshly Made Sketches #199.


The Friday Mashup #221.

FM221Here’s your Mashup Challenge :

  • Create a project using shades of Dijon, Olive, Razzleberry.
  • Create a project inspired by Summer Flowers.
  • or Mash it Up! and create a “Summer Flowers Project using the colors above.

And Send A Smile 4 Kids, Clean and Simple Challenge.


That’s a big job for one little CAS card!

abSDC17225This card has an amazing pre-colored, digital image by Fred She Said Designs! 🙂  The image I’m using is called Wheelbarrow Digi & Pre-ColouredThe sentiment is a Stampin’ Up! stamp, I don’t know what set it’s from, because I bought just this one stamp:(  Maybe someone reading this will know:)  The saying seems very appropriate for our SAS4Kids hospitals:)  It says:  “Every day holds the possibility of a miracle” by Elizabeth David.  

At the bottom I added a strip of Daffodil Delight, embossed with a retired Stampin’ Up! embossing folder, Needlepoint Border.  I added a samll piece of Wild Wassabi.  I’d be hard pressed to make it much more clean and simple, although I could, just don’t want to;) lol  The background color is also Stampin’ Up!, Pacific Point, one of my favorite blues! 🙂

Well, that’s my card for today, now on to my guest, Nanci Simmons! 🙂


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAAre these too cute! ?  Nanci has sent multiples of her cards, but they’re all a little bit different:)  Different papers make the cards different enough for two kids to receive the same card on the same hospital unit:)


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAYou can see that Nanci is a master at changing a few things to make the cards different! 🙂  These are all hand colored! 🙂

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAMore hand colored cared, all are great for boys! 🙂


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI’ve never tried these, but Nanci says they are easy and fun to make:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALast two cards tonight, I love both of these! 🙂  I love Nanci’s wide variety of papers, colors and layouts! 🙂  Thank you Nanci, all these cards will be great for our kids! 🙂 All these cards, as well as my card, are going to hospitals sponsored by Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂


Thanks for coming by today, I’m thankful for your interest! 🙂  Even if you don’t send cards to SAS4Kids, you can still get plenty of good ideas from all the cards posted:)  I am always interested in your comments or questions! 🙂  Have a great week! 🙂

    Very sweet card Janet. So beautifully co-ordinated as always. Wow! Nanci’s cards are impressive. Great colouring.

  2. Karen Peterson

    Beautiful card, Janet! And Nanci’s cards are wonderful, simply wonderful!

  3. Janet, What a sweet card! It is going to bring a huge smile to a little one’s face. (And, how nice of you to have a guest designer. Yes, Nanci is a pretty talented lady!)

  4. Your card is very pretty. Using precolored digis makes for fast card design. That sentiment is so appropriate.

    Janet, I love the sentiment on your card, as well as the color combo & sketch! I love the koala & skateboard cards of Nanci! How very cheery!!!

  6. Breelin

    What a beautiful card and perfect representation of summer flowers! Thanks for playing along at Friday Mashup!

  7. Love your CAS card, Janet! The colors are just perfect for a summery card. I think I’ve seen pinwheels like in Nancy’s two cards demonstrated, and they are pretty easy. I’d be hard-pressed to remember the process off the top of my head, though! They are pretty, however. Thanks so much for sharing all these cards! 🙂 ~ Andrea
