Merry Monday #170 and SAS4Kids

I’m back with one of my own cards and a guest cardmaker who sends cards to me for Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂  My card is going to be entered into the challenge over at Merry Monday #170 🙂  I think I’m even early this time because it’s a two week challenge for Sept. 🙂  This challenge is to use Holly on your card.


aSDC17419For my card, I used a beautiful image from Fred She Said called, Poinsettia & Holly Pre-Coloured Set. It comes with red flowers or white, and a number of different versions:)  I used Stampin’ Up! products to finish off my card.  Real Red cardstock for my base, Hand-Penned Holidays (retired) stamp set, Dazzling Details on the flower centers, and Crystal Effects on the berries to give it some depth and shine:)  I finished my card with the gold embossed sentiment.  Yes, I still use a Stamp-a-ma-jig;)

aSDC17421Here’s a closer look, the flower centers are sparlky, it’s hard to tell about the berries, but it’s easy to see in hand:)  This card will be going into a box for SAS4Kids because we try to send enough cards at Christmas for the kids to give cards to their parents or caregivers:)


Now for my guest I have Janelle Klapperich:)  I’ve shown cards by Janelle before, she has great cards with lots of different designs:)  Today I have some misc. cards and some Halloween.








Aren’t these cute?!  I know, I say that all the time, but I just love kids cards! 🙂  I’m sure these are made with a cutting machine, but I don’t know which one, maybe Janelle will let us know:)
