Cards for Kids.

Jennifer McGuire is holding a Cards for Kids drive - see her blog here.  So over the past few evenings I have been making some cards to send to her for some of the kids.


 
The first two are using some Penny Black images Paula sent me.  I used watercolour pencils to colour them in, nesties to cut out and matt and Hero Arts sentiments.  
The second set are Snag 'em Stamps by Imaginisce.  They are super cute little stamps... the Lion, the Tiger and the words.... Again I coloured with watercolour pencils and used nesties to matt  as well as a bit of distress ink.  Now just to work out which child each one is for and to write something inside.

It was fun doing these and I hope to do some more. The boys are particularly hard to do cards for so the Lion and Tiger are good for them.

Thanks for stopping by... it's the start of a long weekend for me... Monday is a public holiday for Auckland Anniversary Day so NO WORK!!!! and I am going stamping tomorrow with 7 others at Lei's place...should be great fun.  Take care

Hi, Dawn! Terrific cards! I hope you enjoy your long weekend! Here in North Carolina where it rarely snows if ever, we are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow tomorrow, along with sleet and freezing rain, possibly an ice storm with it. If it does any of that, it will likely close everything and grind traffic to a halt. So, it may be a long weekend here, too - but not as fun as a three-day weekend! Enjoy! :-)

Hi, Dawn! It sounds like you are enjoying your long weekend! Stamping, going for a swim, fabulous! We have about 5 inches of snow and it is still coming down. Right now we're getting a lot of sleet and it is compacting the snow and putting a thick crusty layer on top. It's supposed to keep going all day! At least we're warm and inside! Great day to play stamping! :-)
