Bubs is Going to Cards 4 Kids!



I tried to make him not so girlie so maybe one of the boys would want to send this one out for Valentine's Day. I had an idea with using Pat the Dog, but didn't have time today to get to it. I already had Bubs colored so this is what I did for today. I'm determined to get at least 15 cards sent off! Four down, eleven to go.... but I might even be able to get more done! Wish me luck!

I used the set Bubs the Beaver from Our Craft Lounge. I colored him with Copic Markers. The paper is from American Crafts called Recess... it's from the Kid's line. The cute little frog is raised up with one of Jody's Foam Dots... love those suckers! The heart is cut out from the paper. It's layered on a piece of Riding Hood Red from Stampin' Up! and mounted on a Whisper White card base. I added all kinds of sparkle and shine with my atyou Spica Pens and Sakura Glaze Pens. I know, you are probably sick of me using them, but honestly, I can't stop. Cards just don't seem finished to me anymore without them!

I'm trying to keep the layers small so that there won't be any additional postage in case the kids are mailing thier cards. I guess maybe I should ask about that.

So, what do you say? Can you make a card or two for some kids? Check out the links in the previous post... they are also giving away some great blog candy!

I had a awesbomb day yesterday! Thanks for the wishes! I'm taking off and heading to Eugene with my Mom tomorrow.... I'm looking forward to some girl time. I love having my Mom to myself for four hours in the car... unterrupted! whooo hooo!

Have a super weekend everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
