Cards for Kids

Isn't Jennifer McGuire the greatest.  She's ALWAYS doing something wonderfully selfless and giving.  If you haven't already seen it, she has a card drive going on at the moment for a number of sick kids who could really do with some nice mail.  Click HERE for details.

So I made a couple of cards - I am not great at kids' cards... but I've done my best, with the help of an ADORABLE digikit by Crystal Wilkerson.  Check it out here - it's FULL of fun.


Supplies: Stamps and button - Hero Arts; Papers - Crystal Wilkerson.
I plan to make more over the next few days, so I just bought some new items to help me. Haven't been supply shopping for a few months now (unbelievable...), so I thought it was time to treat myself.
Check out my purchases...
  I got this set of Prima rubons... Oh my goodness how adorable are they. I am so excited to get them open...


I got this box of K&Co Chipboard Animals... hooray


I also got the Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg Chipboard Shapes... the squirrel was actually calling to me in my sleep:

I'm determined to be more adventurous with my ribbons so got this pretty set to try out:

So... this weekend I expect I'll mostly be making ANIMAL themed cards. Hooray.
Happy Wednesday everyone - I love Wednesday - the week's half way through.  Nearly the weekend now.
