SAS4Kids #187 cards 4 boys

I can hardly believe it’s been a month since I was last here!Β  I had planned on at least one more post in February, but I was sick 😦  Thankfully I’m much better now, just in time for the monthly SAS4kids post! πŸ™‚

I’m glad you’re here and hope you enjoy the inspiration I have to share with you today πŸ™‚Β  My card is a “boy” card, I know a lot of you have trouble with boy cards, I do too.Β  But this card actually came together pretty quickly πŸ™‚

My Project

This card is using Stampin’ Up! stamp set Enjoy Life, all the images are silhouettes.Β  The sentiment is also from the set.Β  For the background I used a free image from Fred She Said Designs. Go here and scroll down below the bride, you will see I asked for this stand alone background, and Tracey graciously supplied it for free! πŸ™‚Β  I resized it on my Print Shop program and I think it works great for this card! πŸ™‚Β  It’s so easy to put together, I think I will make some cards for all of my hospitals! πŸ™‚

I received some cards from a brand new (to me) donor πŸ™‚Β  Her name is Jaydee and to visit her blog you can go here, Stampin! with Jaydee.Β  Jaydee sent about 240 cards!Β  It was almost impossible to decide what to share!Β  Some of the cards were duplicates, but there were plenty of cards for me to choose from! πŸ™‚

OMGoodness, thank you so much Jaydee! πŸ™‚Β  There are so many more, please visit her blog above the cards πŸ™‚Β  These cards will be shared with 4 different hospitals in IL & IN! πŸ™‚

While I’ve been sick, I received a several more boxes that haven’t been gone through yet as I didn’t want to touch the cards while I had germs!Β  I will be sharing more cards from other donors soon! πŸ™‚

Thanks for coming by today, I appreciate your interest in Send A Smile 4 Kids and the inspiration our donors share with our kids! πŸ™‚

I am a Stampin’ Up! Demo, so I do receive monies from products I sell.Β  I do not receive any compensation for any products I showcase on my blog from anyone.

I saw a card on Pinterest with these eggs by PaperTrey Ink and I thought they were adorable! πŸ™‚Β  The green paper is Stampin’ Up! and the Happy Easter die is from Memory Box.Β  It was fun to put together with Stampin’ Up! inks πŸ™‚

I have a couple of guests cards today πŸ™‚Β  Please enjoy the Winter cards made by Trish Cudney of MN, where it’s still Winter as well as in IL!

SAS4Kids with Fall or Holiday Wishes

Hello everyone! πŸ™‚Β  What a beautiful day it is here where I live, lots of sunshine! πŸ™‚Β  I have a short post for you today.Β  I haven’t been getting very many cards yet, so I have a few I’ve made πŸ™‚Β  They’re general sentiments with a Fall and Winter themes πŸ™‚

First, here is my card for today’s Send A Smile 4 Kids challenge πŸ™‚

a1DSC00804

For my card, I used Stampin’ Up! cardstock, the pumpkin paper is from Carta Bella, Hello Fall.Β  The pumpkin image is from Etsy, I added the “Happy Birthday” with a digital file.Β  The pumpkin embossing folder is from Cuttlebug, and I used a Stampin’ Up! die to cut out the Happy Birthday pumpkin πŸ™‚

I love this card, a great example of Fall theme with a general sentiment! πŸ™‚Β  I have a couple more for you πŸ™‚

aDSC00836

This card info is below, except I used Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake card stock on this one.

aDSC00834

For both of these cards I used Echo Park, Celebrate Winter πŸ™‚Β  All of my paper pads are 6×6, I think the graphics are just the right size for cards πŸ™‚Β  Although I did buy the 12×12 solid paper pack.

I love the sentiments on both of these cards!Β  You may be surprised where I got the Celebrate Winter sentiment.

DSC00825

I cut it off the bottom of one of the solid 12×12 sheets, it runs across the bottom of the card stock!Β  I’ve probably seen it before, but it never occurred to me, that I could use it as a sentiment! Β  I don’t usually get the solid paper packs because Stampin’ Up! has such great colors, they match almost everything! πŸ™‚Β  I did use Stampin’ Up! Real Red for behind the sentiment πŸ˜‰

DSC00826

I hope you enjoyed my cards πŸ™‚Β  Hopefully I’ll start getting some Winter and Christmas cards in so I can share them with you! πŸ™‚

Thank you to everyone who donates cards to our cause, Send A Smile 4 Kids, we couldn’t do this without you! πŸ™‚

If you’re just stopping by, I hope you’ve gotten some inspiration from my cards today πŸ™‚Β  The holidays aren’t the only thing going on in any given month!Β  Kids still need general cards to fill in πŸ™‚Β  I’ll be having more Winter and Christmas cards to share soon, I hope you’ll come back! πŸ™‚

Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge #180

Hello visitors! πŸ™‚Β  I’m so happy to be here for the SAS4Kids Celebration Cards 4 Kids Challenge #180! πŸ™‚Β  I’m posting my card and you can go to our blog to see the other cards made for the challenge, and you can join in too! πŸ™‚Β  Here is my card:

aDSC00796

I was thinking boy, Winter, Birthday πŸ™‚Β  I used a Birthday die from Stampin’ Up!, and all Stampin’ Up! cardstock.Β  The printed paper is from a stack by Carta Bella, called Cabin Fever, I love this paper stack.Β  If you can’t find the paper anymore, you can get it digital from Snap Click Supply.Β  I used the digital 6×6 paper #1&2.Β  I have a nice Cannon printer and I used Matte, photo paper.

This post will be a little long, I have two guests to share their cards! πŸ™‚Β  First is Brenda Zellner πŸ™‚

Most of Brenda’s cards are Winter cards, but there are some Christmas included as well πŸ™‚Β  Thank you Brenda for these wonderful cards, they are perfect for our kids! πŸ™‚

Next I have cards from Paula Kysilka πŸ™‚Β  Paula lives in FL but truly understands Winter, and Christmas from a lot of other states! πŸ™‚

Thank you Paula, these are also wonderful cards that our kids will love! πŸ™‚Β  Thank you both for sharing your talents! πŸ™‚

Lots of these cards have general sentiments, and very few actual “Merry Christmas” cards.Β  I’ve been asked to send more cards that have Non-“Merry Christmas” sentiments, such as “Happy Holidays”, “Seasons Greetings”, and such.Β  I know it’s a sign of the times we live in, but it makes me sad just the same 😦

I want to thank all of my donors who can “go with the flow” and adjust to whatever our hospitals ask for! πŸ™‚

Thank you all for stopping by! πŸ™‚Β  I hope you’ll come back again and maybe join our challenge! πŸ™‚Β  You don’t have to make cards to enjoy our wonderful card makers efforts! πŸ™‚

I hope you all can celebrate the holiday season whatever way makes you happy! πŸ™‚

SAS4Kids and More Fall

Here we are with another card for Send A Smile 4 Kids πŸ™‚Β  I also have some cards with other sentiments on Fall themed paper πŸ™‚Β  My post this week will be short, sorry 😦  My computer was down for over two days and I got really far behind on everything! 😦  I did make it back online in time to post my card for today’s challenge, yay! πŸ™‚

So, here’s my card, made especially for a kid at one of “my” SAS4Kids hospitals πŸ™‚

aDSC00613

This card was made with an adorable, pre-colored, digital image from Fred She Said Designs πŸ™‚Β  It’s called Halloween Rosey and it’s in the store πŸ™‚Β  It comes pre-colored or uncolored in a set.

I also used a new color from Stampin’ Up! called Gorgeous Grape.Β  The Die Cuts are Stampin’ Up! as well as the Halloween Paper (retired), Washi Tape (retired), and the thick Whisper White card base πŸ™‚Β  I found this sentiment in my stash of stamps.

The new Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog will be out next week and I’ll have it on my sidebar to the right if you’d like to check out what’s new for this holiday season! πŸ™‚

The current challenge #178 is Cute Fall or Halloween cards 4 kids or Anything Goes, please stop by and check out the other DT cards and enter your card! πŸ™‚

Now I have donor Alissa McKinney of IN! πŸ™‚Β  Alissa sent in some really cute cards with different sentiments and Fall/Halloween themed papers πŸ™‚Β  Thank you Alissa for continuing to be one of my donors, I know the kids will love your cards! πŸ™‚

DSC00599

Lots of leaves, pumpkins, owls, and wonderful colors! πŸ™‚Β  Sentiments include: You’re so sweet, A Halloween hello, Hello, You brighten my day, Happy Birthday, Happy day, and Enjoy the little things πŸ™‚Β  Lots of inspiration here! πŸ™‚

Winter “themed” cards can look similar using Winter papers and adding general sentiments such as these above πŸ™‚Β  Winter has sledding, penguins, skating, snowball fights, moose, deer, snowmen, or snow women πŸ˜‰Β  I’ll be showing you some Winter cards coming up soon πŸ™‚

I’m sorry for such a short post today, the computer being offline has really messed with me and a lot of the things I do 😦  Please come back again to see what is going on with more cards! πŸ™‚Β  I appreciate your interest in my blog and Send A Smile 4 Kids! πŸ™‚
