The Paper Players #265 & Halloween guests for SAS4Kids

Okay, we’re winding down on the Halloween cards, but not tonight!  Tonight, I have three guests with cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂  First, my card for the challenge over at the Paper Players #265🙂  It’s a Halloween challenge! 🙂

pp265pumpkinThere were no guidelines, except to make a Halloween card.  I chose to make a Stampin’ Up! circle thinlits card.  I’ve been thinking about making this type of card for a few weeks.  Then some came in for SAS4Kids, and I knew I had to put one together! 🙂  I even used one of the same papers:)

The card base is Stampin’ Up! Tangerine Tango, and I used Motley Monsters DSP from last year for the right side.  The cute puppy and the moon are from Lawn Fawn, they come with matching dies.  The candy corn on the left I bought at Michaels at least a year ago, it’s all sparkly:)  My granddaughter approved this card, as a matter of fact, she wants to keep it! 🙂  I guess I’ll have to make at least one more! 😉

 

Now on to our guests!  My first guest is a repeat sender, Nancy Simmons, from FL:)  Nancy makes great cards and usually uses a lot of ribbon.  Today she has used Bakers Twine.  I’m only showing some of her cards.  She made a few designs but changed up the papers and sent multiples! 🙂

Nancy is another one of my cardmakers who is a wiz at changing papers around to make cards look different!  I’m not good at this, it takes me forever just to pick out one paper! lol

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAAren’t these great?!  I know Nancy uses Stampin’ Up! products a lot of the time! 🙂  I love all these cards, they’re fun and definitely not-too-scary! Thank you Nancy for the great cards! 🙂

 

Next I have Tammy Gullett from IA:)  Tammy is also a repeat sender!  I love all my cardmakers, I have a great group! 🙂 Tammy also sent some great cards! 🙂

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAHere is Tammy’s card that gave me the idea to use the Stampin’ Up! DSP.  Tammy used a similar technique, but I can’t tell if she used the die I used.  These are all wonderful cards to share with our kids, Thank you Tammy for sending them in! 🙂

 

My last guest today is Andrea La Vigne from TX:)  Andrea has her own blog 🙂  Please visit Andrea’s Paper Antics for more details on her cards:)  I’ve linked the page for this card, because it’s awesome, but she has plenty of other cards that are great as well! 🙂

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis is an awesome shaped card with sequins inside! 🙂  The kids are going to be jealous of whoever gets this one! lol  Andrea tells how she made it on her blog, so be sure to check it out! 🙂

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI love the papers Andrea uses, and her layouts are great too! 🙂

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI love these 4 cards!  They are such gentle Halloween cards!  I know any age would appreciate these cards! 🙂

Thank you Andrea for sharing your talents with us and the kids! 🙂  Andrea is also a repeat sender:)

I don’t think I can thank my cardmakers enough for all they do for the kids at Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂  Check out the SAS4Kids challenge blog to see what other cardmakers are sending in for our hospitals! 🙂
