SAS4Kids #187 cards 4 boys

I can hardly believe it’s been a month since I was last here!  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! 🙂

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

My Project

This card is using Stampin’ Up! stamp set Enjoy Life, all the images are silhouettes.  The sentiment is also from the set.  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! 🙂  I resized it on my Print Shop program and I think it works great for this card! 🙂  It’s so easy to put together, I think I will make some cards for all of my hospitals! 🙂

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

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

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!  I will be sharing more cards from other donors soon! 🙂

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

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

I saw a card on Pinterest that was similar, but not the same.  I’m always saying how I need more “boy” cards, so I made one 😉  Using the Doodlebug, Dragon Tails, 6×6 pad, and also the Dragon Tails odds & ends pack.  I popped up the dragon and the sentiment with Stampin’ Dementionals from Stampin’ Up!, also some Tombow glue.  Deciding what to do was the hardest part.  Once I got going it was really easy! 🙂
Now I need to apologize to my cardmakers.  I’m sorry, this last month has been really busy and I didn’t have time to do individual card photos 😦  But I am going to share some of the group photos 🙂  So first I have Melissa Jackson of MO.  Melissa has group card making events and some of the ladies share their cards with us as well 🙂  So in her grouping of cards, other cardmakers could have actually made some of the cards, but they were all sent by Melissa for our kids! 🙂

Melissa’s group makes well made and fun cards, great to share with our kids! 🙂
Next up is Judy Martin of PA 🙂

Ruby tends to send themes, like holidays, this time was mostly baby cards which are so cute!  I’m also loving the three cards right up front! 🙂
Next is Dr. Robin Hayworth of NY! 🙂

Robyn sends some of the same cards almost every time, but she throws in new ones
also 🙂  Great selection for all ages! 🙂
I want to thank all of my card makers, including these four! 🙂  Your dedication means so much to me and the kids at our hospitals! 🙂  You make a difference! 🙂
Thank everyone for joining me today, even if you don’t make cards for SAS4Kids, I appreciate your interest! 🙂  I hope you’ve found some inspiration! 🙂
I hope you will join us on July 21st for our Christmas in July Blog Hop! 🙂  You can visit us on our blog, or start with me, here! 🙂

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! 🙂
