Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids!!





Hey there all and welcome to the Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids Blog Hop!! We have all come together today to make cards for a wonderful cause, Cards for Kids! We hope to encourage you to also make cards for this great cause and have some fun along the way too. So please hop along with us, and make sure to leave comments as there will be prizes for commenters and participants. So lets get hopping!! Also, if you get lost in the hop, you can always start at the beginning at the Lawn Fawn Blog. Thank you so much for hopping with us today!


I got so exited about the hop, I had to make two cards! Here is my first one using Lawn Fawn's 'Just My Type' stamp set. I have had this set for a few weeks but haven't had the time to introduce it to some ink, so I was extra excited to get going!
Gorsh, I do love these colors together. So vibrant and fun! I couldn't stop without adding some felt ric rac which of course goes so well with scissors ; ) and I tied a tiny button with some twine to my chartreuse scissors and popped it up with a dimensional. I stamped the scissor images on some linen vellum and then distressed the edges so it has some nice texture.


The second card is done using Pink Persimmon stamps. I love this set SO very much. And I thought maybe this would be a good pick-me-up kind of a card for a lovely girl. Everyone wants to know they are a jewel and priceless, right?!
I used two shades of pink for this baby. I stamped the main jewel image with silver ink so it is nice and shimmery. I used red and pink adhesive gems to finish off the image. I also used an impression plate on the card base and brushed it with some white ink to help it pop.
My kids also wanted to get in on the action and each chose a child to make pictures for to send. Here is Ronin's. It's a picture of both Zach and he dancing under the sun and a disco ball. How does he know about disco balls? While we were working he said he was going to draw a sun on Zach's chest to show that he had grown healthy and strong there and then he outlined it with a heart. Sometimes kids are wise beyond their years.

And here is Cache's picture for little Gavin. He is just learning how to draw people and its been so fun to watch. He was a bit camera shy when it came time to show the goods. We hope these bring some joy to the recipients.

And there you have it!! Go on and leave a comment because remember there are prizes to be won and then click on the name to hop to: Rhonda!! Remember if you get lost in the hop go back to Lawn Fawn and get your bearings. There are so many wonderful cardmakers that are participating in this hop you really don't want to miss even one of them!

Have a fun time and thanks for stopping in!

So love your cards and your play on words. The thing that is so great is the love and care that your kids are showing these Sick Kids who really need some cheering up. To have kids get involved in these sorts of things really does help create a giving and caring spirit making them such great parts of their communities when they grow up. Your a great Mom!
Thanks for sharing.
