Wild Card Wednesday & Cards for Kids


Wow--Friday sure crept up fast! It felt so good to veg out the week, visiting blogs and doing some online shopping. Did anyone else go bonkers at Papertrey Ink? My mail carrier brought me two boxes from PTI on two separate days--yikes!



I managed to make a card for Club Anya & Friends' Wild Card Wednesday with this sketch by Kim Costello.









Here's my take on the sketch. I used Anya--in a bikini!--from the new Sunshine kit by The Greeting Farm.

I stamped the cloud background by Hero Arts behind her, and also used the new check background stamp. I love how the colors look against kraft.

Stamps: The Greeting Farm, Hero Arts
Ink: Hero Arts , Distress inks, Papertrey Ink
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Hero Arts notecard, kraft
Patterned paper: Me and My Big Ideas
Other: Copics, Papertrey Ink flower die, Stampin Up scallop border die, buttons



The third round of the Cards for Kids card drive has just begun. There are now 13 kids and their families all of whom can use a bit of cheer. You can read all about them here and learn how you can be a part of this very rewarding card drive. And there are lots of great prizes from great companies, too.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

  21. Oh, this card is adorable! Any kid would love this! Beautiful! I would have loved to buy every single new release at PTI (AND THE NEW BITTY DOT BASICS PAPER especially!!!) . I love my Tea for Two set and need that addition set and the dies! But their insured shippingcosts for Internationals plus customs force me to resist. Can't wait to see what you do with your new goodies!
