Tonight I bring to my blog a lot of firsts.
Firstly, I finished a project in the light of day,
and secondly, I photographed the inside of the card.
Thirdly, I am joining in at the Truly Scrumptious Blog
and last but not least, this card is ready to be mailed!!
Wahoo, I am on a role!!
I made my way back to the Simon Says Challenge Blog
and they are hosting a superb challenge,
this week, Simon Says to Make A Child Smile!!
Our mission is to make a card that would
brighten a childs day and send it to them via
Make a Child Smile or Post Pals
Both of these organizations allow for people to
send greetings to unwell children who could use a pick-me-up.
Please look into this project, but get your hanky out,
these sites will tug at your heart strings.
This week, Heidi is offering a $25 gift certificate
to one lucky winner, but there's more,
you can increase your odds by submitting multiple entries.
That's right, make a card for a child, enter it
in the Simon Says Challenge Blog,
send it off to a precious little one,
while at the same time increasing your odds
at the bounty, sounds like a deal to me!!
I hope you all can find the time to take part in these great organizations.
If you're anything like me, some of these projects I post
are in need of recipients anyway, so why not make them kid-friendly
and make a child smile?!?!?
This week over at the Truly Scrumptious Blog
they have provided us with a sketch by Sharon,
with the added task of using our neglected, forgotten stash.
These two challenges were made for each other,
as I know we all have a Winnie stamp or two that
hasn't seen daylight in 5 years.
Every bit of the exterior of my card,
minus the watercolour pencils I coloured with,
has been collecting some serious dust until yesterday.
Such talent on the DT, they live up to their namesake!!
And here's the inside, might as well share since I snapped a piccie.
Now that I am looking at it, I should have shadowed with blue,
would've looked like clouds!! Too late...
I know my post is a little lengthy, but I hope you agree
the details are worth the read.
Go check out the links, such a good cause,
I think I'll start on another card
now that I've unearthed my forgotten stamp box ;)
