For the boys

Good morning everyone!  It is time for the SAS 4 Kids Challenge #31- For the Boys.  We have some wonderful Sponsors this week for you, Bugaboo (7 free digi's), Karen's Doodles (3 free digi's) and Stamp Shoppe Creations ($15 gift certificate).  A big thank you to the Sponsors for the wonderful images and prizes!!

For my first card I used the image "Summertime Boy, Soccer" and colored him with Copics.  I combined him with some "Earth" digital papers from Paper Street Designs, all links below.  For some reason the lighting on my camera made his legs look orange, to much tanning I guess ;)

My second card is using the adorable image from Bugaboo called "Cowboy, Fence 2".  I colored him with Copics, I then used a combination of colors to make a sunset and I need a little more work on that!  I combined the image with some papers from Jessica Sprague "Modernist" and popped the image up in the middle.

I hope that you all can join in on the fun challenge this week, we would absolutely love to see your "For the Boy" cards.  Remember you do not have to send your cards in to join the challenge, anyone can join in as long as they are kid friendly cards.  If you would like to send your cards in please click HERE for more information on that.  As always if you have any questions please ask and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend :)

Good morning everyone!  It's time to Celebrate the Occasion with challenge #59- Congratulations (monochromatic).  I decided to use some scraps that I had on hand in shades of brown and then added a pretty flower from the Recollections collection.  Added some satin ribbon and a bow to finish it off.  Hop on over and take a look at what the rest of the DT has done and join in on the fun challenge.  The prize for April is a $15 gift certificate to Hobby Lobby, Michaels or Joann's.  I hope to see all your wonderful entries and as always have a fabulous day :)

SAS 4 Kids #30

Good morning everyone, it is time again for another SAS 4 Kids Challenge #30- Happy Mother's or Father's Day (from kids).  We have another set of wonderful Sponsors for you and some fabulous prizes; Whimsy Stamps (5 digis of winners choice), Digi Doodle Shop ($10 gift certificate), Crop Stop ($15 gift certificate) and last but not least Cuddly Buddly (5 pound gift certificate).

For my first card I used the fun image from Digi Doodle Shop called "adamant golfer", I colored him in with my copies and paper pierced his shirt and pants then popped up the image with some pop dots.

My second card is using an adorable image from Cuddly Buddly called "Annie and friend", all links below in recipe.  I kept this as a CAS card to showcase the image, I colored it up with Copics and added the frame and sentiment in photoshop.

I hope I have inspired you enough to hop on over and take a look, the DT has put together some wonderful samples for you.  We would absolutely love for you to join in and you do not have to send your card in to join the challenge, even though would love to have them if you have some laying around.  Click HERE for details, the main requirements (it has to be a card and it has to be kid friendly).  As always if you have any questions please ask and I hope you all have a wonderful day :)

Happy Good Friday

Happy Good Friday everyone!!  I made this "Paper Egg" from My Scrap Chick and filled it with some candy for a nice surprise.  Not much details for this post, was pretty easy to put together and then I topped with some Martha Stewart ribbon I had from my stash, for all links see below recipe.   I am keeping this one short, I just want to share an important verse that reminds me of what today is really about for me.  I hope you all have a wonderful day :)

Romans 5:7-8 
For one will scarcely die for a righteous person - though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die - (8) but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
