I just came across a challenge website that encourages cards for children. They accept donated cards, and give them to hospitals for the sick children in the hospital.
It is Send A Smile for Kids This card will not qualify for this challenge, but I will certainly be looking to the future to do some cards for this worthwhile cause. Please take a look, and consider sending a smile to a kid.
365 Cards That's a First -- Chester (our mischievous grand puppy) just turned one. His "parents" had a party for him. So this is for Chester -- it could, of course, be used for a real birthday too.
I used this sketch from Cardabilities :
I am also putting this on Addicted to CAS - The key word is "Pet". While it is not really clean and simple, it is most definitely for a pet.
Over at Sweet Stampin they are celebrating their 4th anniversary. Check out the great cards there!
And at Wags n Whiskers they are looking at cards for kids.
The puppy stamp is from Inkadinkadoo -- it is actually a set for baby cards. I colored him with copics, and added some flock to his ears. For real, he is a cute brown cock-a-poo with a white chest and toes.
The papers are from Stampin Up. I cut the die cut the balloon, added some crystal effects for shine.
In case you haven't met Chester, here is a pix of him this summer. And the next shot is him helping me with my card-making. You can see the results of his card-making help here: woyww-seriously
Thanks for looking!!
