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 Kids๐Ÿ™‚ย  My card is going to be entered into the challenge over at Merry Monday #170 ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I think I’m even early this time because it’s a two week challenge for Sept. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  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:)ย  I used Stampin’ Up! products to finish off my card.ย  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:)ย  I finished my card with the gold embossed sentiment.ย  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:)ย  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:)ย  I’ve shown cards by Janelle before, she has great cards with lots of different designs:)ย  Today I have some misc. cards and some Halloween.

Aren’t these cute?!ย  I know, I say that all the time, but I just love kids cards! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I’m sure these are made with a cutting machine, but I don’t know which one, maybe Janelle will let us know:)
