Freshly Made Sketches #311 & guests

Hello! 🙂  It seems like I never have time to make cards myself anymore 😦  But I made one today, plus I have guest cards to share, I hope you’re ready! 🙂

My card will be submitted at Freshly Made Sketches #311 I will also post it on the Send A Smile 4 Kids challenge blog 🙂  I’m thinking this card would be good for a teen 😉  Here’s this weeks sketch:

FMS Final 311-001

Here’s my card:

I thought it was a little hard to see, so I took the photo again with a green background.

It’s hard to tell about the silver accents in either photo I think 😦

Well, on to my guest donors 🙂  First I have Deborah Caldwell of MI 🙂

Thanks Debbie for these great Christmas cards! 🙂  I love to get cards early for a holiday! 🙂  Some of our kids need to mail their cards and I like to have plenty of time for them to get where they need to go 🙂

Next I have Janelle Klapperich of SD 🙂  Janelle sent her cards in Oct. so I have some Fall and some early Christmas to share 🙂

Thank you Janelle for the great cards and the early Christmas! 🙂

Now I want to share some cards from Trish Cudney of MN 🙂  Trish sent in Winter cards! 🙂  Winter cards are really important, Christmas isn’t the only thing going on during Dec., Jan., and Feb.

Lots of Thinking of You, and “no sentiment” cards, these can be used for anything in the Winter! 🙂  Really cute examples of layouts and look at those same images with different layouts and papers, you know I love those! 🙂  Also, don’t be afraid to send up to 10 of the same card.  I have 4 hospitals now and can divide them up 🙂

Thank you Trish for sending some early Christmas cards! 🙂 Trish shared that the papers she used were 6×6 pads from Echo Park, “A Perfect Winter” and Carta Bella, “Cabin Fever”.

I appreciate you all and the wonderful cards you send for our kids! 🙂  I can’t imagine our kids without holiday and general cards, I don’t even want to 😦  It must be so exciting to receive a card while in the hospital! 🙂  You are the ones spreading those smiles, be proud! 🙂

Thanks for coming by today and looking at the great cards that donors share! 🙂  If you are part of our group, I’m so glad you’re here! 🙂  If you just come by for inspiration, I hope you found some! 🙂  I appreciate every one of you!! 🙂

Please take a few minutes and check out both of the blogs linked above for more card ideas! 🙂  Hope to see you again soon! 🙂

    I love seeing everyone’s cards! Such cute penguins and “floating” puppies! I adore the Reindeer face card, too. I am going to try to make a couple of those. Good luck on your sketch challenge–you did a fabulous job!

    Janet, I love your card! Such a simple, quiet scene, but still with a lot of interest. I’m sure whichever child receives it will love it! Great cards by the other donors as well. Thank you for sharing your creation and theirs! Good luck with the sketch challenge–I think you have a winner! 🙂 ~ Andrea
