On Sunday, I promised you a look at some of the cards I have been making for SendASmile4Kids. Well, here are the first of the cards that I made using an Echo Park paper pack, a packet of matching ephemera and a couple of stickers.
It's mer-mazing how much fun I had with some paper and a few matching goodies. Although the papers are waaaay busier than I would normally even think about using, I think they are perfect for this purpose. I managed to get 27 cards in total from that one packet of paper and elphemera. Not bad for a $10 purchase at Scrapbook.com
So fair warning, this is a photo heavy post :-) I decided to spare you and not put all 27 cards on in a single post - so I am splitting them into two.
Here are the cards, in no particular order of preference on my part... Although, I must admit, I am a little bit partial to the pink mirror cardstock and the pink mermaid tale :-)
Grab a coffee, or your favorite beverage - and let's get started:
I don't generally make children's cards, so it was wonderful to be able to spend some time thinking about what papers went with what ephemera pieces and what additional things could be added. I hope that the recipients will enjoy receiving them as much as I enjoyed making them.
Because I had such fun playing around with the Mermaid paper and pieces, I went back to Scrapbook.com and bought other sets including: Pirates; Dogs; Fashion; Wild Animals; Farms and girly birthday bits and bobs.
Did you know that SendaSmile4Kids also has a challenge? You can check it out here - I'll be entering one of these cards in the current challenge, too :-)
I'll be back tomorrow with the second round of Mermaid cards and, because I have spent quite a few hours making cards over the last couple of weeks, will have many more to share with you - and they are all destined to go to SendASmile4Kids. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
