A card by me…..no laughing! Plus SAS4Kids guest

Ok, laughing will be allowed, only to yourself! 🙂  You all may know that I sell Stampin’ Up!, I love Stampin’ Up!, but I have found these cute little critters by Lawn Fawn! 🙂  First off, if you haven’t been here before, I don’t color!  At least not often, I just don’t do it well, which you will see in just one minute! lol  Ok, I can laugh! 😉

I made this card, my first card using Lawn Fawn stamps!  It’s not for a challenge, it’s for one of my granddaughters:)  I’ll be sending her some cut out images she can color, I’m sure much better than me, but it’s the thought that counts, right?  So cut me a little slack, here’s my card:)

aSDC17609First off, I have to admit that it didn’t come out the way I planned.  The birthday is in the wrong place, and there was an ink smudge on the lower right that I had to cover up:(  I did use two colors on the tree and the Platypus;)  Ok, I know it’s not great, but maybe passable?  She has always loved the Platypus, and I think it’s cute with the hat:)  I don’t have the birthday cake or the balloon sets:(  I managed with what I have on hand.  I did use a Stampin’ Up! sentiment and I actually colored with the Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities:)  Sadly you can’t get them anymore, there was a production quality issue:(

I spent a lot of time coloring the tree and Platypus, so I wasn’t going to give up on this card no matter what!  I guess I could have cut them out with the dies, but I wanted to try it this way.  I did cut out the little hat by hand! 😉 lol  Hopefully, I will get better at this! 🙂


Now on to some cards made by my guests! 🙂  My first guest is Kayla Ford from my home state of IL:)  Kayla sent in a box of 37 Halloween cards for sharing with Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂

    Your colouring is just fine! I think your card is adorable. Wow – all of those Halloween cards are amazing! Love the ones with the multi-coloured stripes. They look fabulous.

  2. Love the platypus and I think you did a great job! I like that sentiment too. Great for a kids card.

    Janet, I really like your card & your coloring is just fine! The platypus is cute & I’m sure your granddaughter will really enjoy it! Kayla’s witch cards sure are cute & I really like the color combinations in Vicki’s cards. Keep up the great work, ladies!!!

  4. Janet, your card is cute. The coloring is fine. I can’t tell you how many smudges I cover up with sequins or other element. Your granddaughter will love it because it comes with so much love from you.

  5. Thank you ladies, you’re all so kind! 🙂
