Tickled Pink Stamps Sponsors Send A Smile 4 Kids




Better late than never!  This was supposed to go live this morning, but I wasn't finished with my card.  I was too tired to start it last night, and my first attempt to color my image this morning ended in catastrophe so I had to walk away and come back when I was fresh.  I know, I know... If I didn't always procrastinate and planned for the unexpected I'd never be late.  But if I did all that then I wouldn't be me!  :-)  So anyway, I'm finally here with my card for today's Tickled Pink Stamps sponsorship!  We are sponsoring Send A Smile 4 Kids.  The challenge is "Birthday Fun for Kids".  Here is a little information about this group as they are more than just a challenge blog.

Send A Smile 4 Kids is a charitable blog created for the purpose of collecting donated handmade cards to be distributed to children while they are inpatient at Children’s Hospitals. Currently they are donating them to the several different Children’s Hospitals. On any given day, there are many children inpatient in these hospitals so they would love to receive as many cards as you can send to cheer them and their families. The kids may also use your cards as Thank You notes to the nurses and doctors and to give to parents or relatives on special days like birthdays or Mothers or Fathers Day. Any cards appropriate for children are welcome including any holiday (not religious specific please) and happy any day cards. For more information, please click on Guidelines for Donated Cards Tab.

I have used the adorable Lil Little Lad Luca for my project.  He's colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up with foam squares.  I used this awesome sketch from Sketches by Carly (#58) as my layout.  This one was a lot of fun (all Carly's sketches are!)!  The papers are from my stash and I thought they had a youthful look to them.  They're from Basic Grey's Lime Rickey collection.  So fun!  I embossed the square panel behind the image with the Cuttlebug Number Collage embossing folder.  Seam binding, baker's twine, and a ticket sentiment created from a My Favorite Things die and  a TPS sentiment finish off the card.

I hope you will stop over the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see what my lovely design team mates have created.  Even though Tickled Pink Stamps is no longer releasing new images, you can still buy the existing ones here in the TPS online store.  Snap 'em up now before they disappear forever!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!
