Freshly Made Sketches #295 & Guests

It’s been busy around here but I found time to make a card! 🙂  I’m glad you could join us for some inspiration! 🙂  I’m back with another card for Freshly Made Sketchs #295.  Here is their sketch for this week.

FMS Final 295-001

Here is my card for this week 🙂

Yes, another card for the kids we serve at Send A Smile 4 Kids 🙂  I used an adorable pre-colored digi from Fred She Said called “Emma in the Leaves Coloured“.  You can also get it uncolored in the section named Autumn.  I used Stampin’ Up! Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, and Crushed Curry.  I also used the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Included in the set are circles, squares and ovals.  I do have some buttons shaped like leaves, but couldn’t find them, so I used some foiled leave that I found in my stash 🙂

I like having Seasonal cards with different sentiments for the kids.  There’s more going on in every Season besides a holiday or Birthday! 😉  You can add encouraging words, general sentiments, as well as Happy Fall, Happy Halloween,Merry Christmas, etc.

I have guest cards today to share, I know everyone likes to see what everyone else is making! 🙂  First I have Jill Blasche of TX 🙂  Jill makes and sends in lots of cards! 🙂

Thank you Jill for this wide variety of wonderful cards! 🙂  Jill sent multiples of most of these cards! 🙂  A lot of cards for our Peds ICU!

Next I have Vicki Luebke of IN 🙂  Vicki also sends lots of cards and specializes in sending Encouragement cards! 🙂  Not sure what to send as an Encouragement card?  Look at some of these sentiments 🙂

The little boy with the frog is also Fred She Said, it’s called “Nolan & The Bullfrog“.  Thank you Vicki for these great cards for our boys and girls! 🙂

Lastly I have cards from Dr. Robin Hayworth of NY 🙂  Robyn has sent many cards 🙂

Robin doesn’t just send to me, I’ve seen thank yous on our gratitude page.  Robin is sending to several of our volunteers! 🙂  Thank you Robin for your dedication to our kids, with your beautiful cards! 🙂

Lots of variety today for just about everyone! 🙂  I’d like to thank, not just these three ladies, but all of my donors for their wonderful cards and their inspiration to me! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches #292, SAS4Kids

Welcome back! 🙂  I’ve been making cards again! 🙂  I love all the sunshine we’ve been getting, it makes me so happy! 🙂  It also gives me a lot of energy! 🙂  My grandson has been allowing me to make some cards by being really good! 🙂

I made and will enter into the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #292, a fun Summer card, I hope you like it! 🙂  Here’s the sketch:

FMS Final 292-001

This is where I found this digital image on Etsy. Prettygrafikdesign.

I used Stampin’ Up! papers, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzaz, and a retired DSP.  Isn’t he so cute! ?  Reminded me of my grandson:)  That’s not the only cute card I made, here are a few more:

Some of my images and papers are also from Clipartland, also on Etsy. I had lots of fun making these simple layouts with the cute images! 🙂  I also used more cardstock from Stampin’ Up!, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, and Pacific Point.  The printed papers came from Etsy on one of the sites already given above.

I don’t think we have enough African American images on our cards 😦  I was thrilled to find some cute ones on Etsy! 🙂  Although I have to say, it’s disappointing to just find “white” kids colored “brown”.  At least these images have ethnic hair.

I’m having trouble finding teen boy or girl images, if anyone knows a source, please let me know!  A lot of our “kids” are teens.

I haven’t gotten a lot of Summer cards, that’s one of the reasons I decided to make some.  I made quite a few of these cards 😉  I did just this Saturday get a package from Janelle Klapperich of SD 🙂  Here are some of her cards:

On the left are two cards.  On the right is the inside of the blue “hat” card.  Not a great photo, but I believe you can tell one of the balloons is popping out 🙂

Janelle let me keep one of the jellyfish cards for my grandson, she is so sweet! 🙂  He loves jellyfish and put this card in a place of honor so he can see it every day! 🙂

I love all of these cards, fun and colorful, sure to bring smiles to lots of faces! 🙂  Thank you so much Janelle for sending them in! 🙂

I hope everyone is enjoying their Summer so far! 🙂  I want to thank everyone who makes and sends in cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂  Be sure to check out our blog! 🙂  The current challenge is “For the boys“, and I will also post my card there 🙂  You can join the fun too! 🙂

Thank you all for coming by! 🙂  I appreciate your interest, even if you don’t send in cards! 🙂  I hope you all have found some inspiration! 🙂  Hope to see you all again soon! 🙂
