Cards For Kids

Happy Tuesday my friends! Here are some cards that I made for Jennifer McGuire's on-going card drive - Cards For Kids.

I made this little card using Shelley Castillo's new digital kit - On The Bright Side. There are some very fun and bright color digital papers in this kit.

I resized and cut out some of the fun circles from one of the digital papers and used them as flowers. The stems and leaves were also cut from papers from the same kit. I love the funky look of those flowers! =)

Here are some cards that I made using some cute digital images from The Greeting Farm.

This is Jeremy. Unfortunately, I couldn't find him in the GF store anymore. The link is for Dressy Jeremy. I think he is quite handsome with his neat hair style! =)

Here is a card made with Miss Anya Autumn. I love her cozy outfit! I have a puffy vest just like that!! =)

Please click on the link at the beginning of the post to see how you can help brighten up some kids and their families' day with your cards! =)

Oh my gosh I love your flower card! Sooooo clever! And Jeremy is a great card too, actually I think you should do a card with him in black, his hair is cool but it makes me think of a vampire! (hope you don't mind that I said that!)

Deirdre said...

Virginia L. said...

LOVE those flowers! They look like CANDY to me! YUM!! I also love the images you colored! That Jeremy is uber COOL! I like his "attitude"... reminding me of my son :)
