Friday Mashup #234, Fred She Said & SAS4Kids

Here I am again with lots of cards to share! 🙂  First is the card I’ll be entering in the Friday Mashup #234.


This week’s Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project using the colors Mint, Pool, White and Slate
  • Create a project with a Winter theme .
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project using the a Winter theme and the Colors above.

I’ve not been doing real well with the color challenges this year, so I choose the Winter theme:)


a18267I love this new image from Fred She Said, it’s called Dancing Penguin DIGI & COL! 🙂    

I’ve actually made a number of cards with this image and it was hard to pick just one to enter.  I’ll show you one more and save the rest for later;)

a18218I love both of these cards!  The little penguin is sooo cute!  This card I made with a strip of Stampin’ Up! specialty paper called Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.  This whole set of papers is beautiful! 🙂

The first card I made with Stampin’ Up! Real Red and Basic Black.  I used a misc. stamp that I had laying around.  The striped paper is from ESTY, from a seller called The Little Llama. I’ve bought digital paper from her before that I love!  If you need a link, just let me know:)  I’m always happy to answer questions or receive comments! 🙂


Now I would like to move on to a guest that sent in cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂  I’m happy to show cards from Diane Herniman from Canada:) Diane is a repeat sender, and her cards are very different than most:)   Diane makes all her own envelopes, and she really almost has to, a lot of her cards are large! 🙂










On top is the back, Diane says to not use the back is just a waste of space!  I’m sure the kids appreciate the games and puzzles Diane puts on the back of all her cards! 🙂

My second guest is a repeat sender also, her name is Nanci Simmons:)  Nanci sent in multiples of her cards:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERANanci sent some in with ribbon before with these shapes, but these are different.  She used stamps and papers this time instead of ribbon:)  Look at these cute owls and penguins, the kids are going to love these! 🙂


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThese will be great for older kids or for the kids to share with their parents or staff! 🙂  Thank you Nanci for sharing with our kids for Christmas! 🙂


Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I hope you’ll come back soon for more wonderful cards to inspire you! 🙂  Be sure to check out the Friday Mashup and the SAS4Kids blog challenge! 🙂

    I absolutely love the card with photo of Diane’s dog! That’s sure to cheer a child! Janet: Did you use an embossing folder on white paper for your 2nd penguin card? I really like it! Is it from SU? I like the faux-stitching Nanci did on some of the edges of her cards. Gave them a nice touch!

    Lots of gorgeous penguins there. So much fun. And I love the puzzle idea. They will be a big hit.
