Here's a bright and cheery birthday card I created for Kards for Kids, HSC. It uses a cute Bugaboo Digital Image. I coloured it with Copics in bright colours and matted on this really cute orange/white polka-dot paper !!

Here's a CAS card I created using a lovely Meljen's Designs digital Image. This card will be on it's way to Kards for Kids, HSC in the fall. I coloured it with copics, double-matted it and attached it to the same card base I used for the previous Happy Birthday Boy/Mickey Mouse card.
I just LOVE this Sassy Cheryl image and have used it many times to create some great cards...here I just made a quick and simple card by colouring the image, using a Kraftin' Kimmies Birthday trinket and some vibrant red polka dot paper. It will be sent off with cards I make for Kards for Kids, HSC in the fall (which is fast approaching - ughhh)

Here's a birthday card created by my son Thomas (age 6) for the Simon Says Stamp August Kids Challenge
I created this card for Kards for Kids, HSC. It uses a gorgeous image by Sassy Cheryl. I coloured it with Copics and added a typed sentiment banner. I'm pleased with how this turned out...fairly quick and simple and I will be duplicating it a few more times for Kards for Kids. I had to adhere the image off-centre because I used some CTMH patterned paper and the CTMH name was in the corner (ughhh...one of my pet peeves about that paper!) I'm entering it in two challenges 1. Sassy Cheryl's Show me Thursday Challenge

Here's a little card I created using a lovely Meljen's Designs Image. I coloured it with copics, and mounted it on a dark grey piece of cardstock which I embossed with swirls. A strip of ribbon finishes it of. I think it's a nice CAS card and would be good for a Pet Sympathy card, or just a plain old Thinking of You card.
This is a cute little card I created to send to a friend who lives far away from me (can't say right now who it is as she comes to my blog occasionally) It uses a great Anne of Green Gables Kraftin' Kimmie stamp and I coloured it with copics. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. This card just so happens to fit into the Brown Sugar Challenge - Blue/Green/White

Soooo this card was created for the Sassy Cheryl Challenge - #179 - Black and White Photo theme...WOW...was this challenge hard for me...because I only have two grey-ish Copics (and one died when I was using it on this card...so it's kinda SMEARY-BLENDING - ughhhh !! Anyhow...I managed to make it work by mounting it on a dark grey cardstock, then white, then a dark grey card base, with black and white ribbon added too !! I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting with a typewriter-like stamp from Stampin' Up ! Overall I'm glad it looks "okay" and that I'm done with this challenge (LOL) Sorry Cheryl...I do love your challenges but struggled with this one !!

I created this little tag using Stampin' Up Stamps, punches/diecuts and papers. I attached it to a plain cream coloured card with foam adhesive to pop it up. Its' pretty CAS which is what I'm gravitating towards these days !

Here's a couple of photos of bookmarks I created for Kards for Kids, HSC. They are to go in the treasure box, which kids get to choose from after they have endured treatments. I made the bookmark using a JellyPark Digital Image and printed the image and "My Super Bookmark" in word using a 5-coloumn landscape document. I then cut them out, rounded the corners and there you are 5 bookmarks per page (x 2 pages) for the kids. I'm adding a couple of crayons I had left over some birthday cards I created last year so they can colour the Super Hero !! I hope the kids like them.

This is a cute little card I created using a new image I got from JellyPark Designs. It just so happens their challenge theme this week is "Christmas in July" so it works perfectly for that !! I coloured the image with copics, added some stickles, matted in gray and added it to a plain red card with foam tape to pop it up a bit...a nice clean and simple card !!

Here's a cute Cup of flowers card I created with a lovely Meljen's Designs digital image. It's for the current challenge #171 at Meljen's which is a colour scheme of By the Sea (blues/gray). I've left it blank on the front to stamp a little greeting when I need to use the card...I have several small stamps that would work; like Thank You or Happy Birthday or For You !!

Here's one of the 20 cards I created yesterday for Kards for Kids, HSC. The Smiley Team is in a challenge to create "Christmas in July/Tropical themed cards" for the kids at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. The image is from Bugaboo. I used the dot embossing folder and little colouring with copics and it's done...nice clean and simple card !! I'm entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - the theme is Ode to Sunshine, so I hope the fact that Santa is suntannig counts in this challenge !!
