Freshly Made Sketches #324 & Easter

Hello again! 🙂  I know, I’ve been gone a long time again 😦  I hope you all are making Easter cards! 🙂  Easter is early this year, April 1st!  Hard to believe there are only a few weeks to get your cards sent in! 🙂  I have some cards to show you that I’ve been working on 🙂  My first card is for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #324.  I will also be posting on the SAS4Kids challenge blog, you can too! 🙂

First up is the sketch I worked from:

FMS Final 324-001My Project (201802152018) c

For this card I used a retired Stampin’ Up! set, Basket Bunch 🙂  I think it’s such a cute set, I wish we still had it for sale! 🙂  It comes with all the stamps and dies, I just used a little ink and it was all done! 🙂  I find these minimal sketches very challenging, I’m so used to putting so much more on a card!

Here are a few more cards I made for Easter, not very exciting, but I’m sure some kids is going to love them! 🙂  I also found making “boy” Easter cards to be a challenge!  I hope some of you are making “boy” cards! 😉

Donor cards for Easter have been very slow coming in, but I have some cards to share 🙂  First up is Diane Herniman from Canada 🙂  Diane was joined by her daughter, Dawn to make these great cards! 🙂

Thank you Diane and Dawn, beautiful cards! 🙂  Lots of variety here for kids of all ages! 🙂

 

I also have cards to share from Ruby Haugen of MN:)

Thank you Ruby for always sending such adorable cards! 🙂

I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at all the Easter cards! 🙂  Hopefully you’ve gotten some inspiration, or decided you’d like to send in cards to our cause as well! 🙂  It seems most of our volunteers have a good supply of cards, except holidays.  Easter will be very soon!  Please try to get cards to your volunteers at least 2 weeks prior to a holiday! 🙂  After Easter/Spring is Mother’s Day and then Father’s Day, I know, hard to believe! 🙂

Please let me know if you would like to become a volunteer! 🙂  You get to choose your hospitals, and donors would send you cards to share with that hospital or hospitals 🙂

Kids love to receive cards and handmade cards are the best! 🙂

Thank you for coming by today, it’s always fun to share the wonderful cards received for our kids! 🙂  I hope to see you sooner next time! 🙂
