Cards for Kids

The mid-week throwdown over at the Stars and Stamps blog is to make Cards 4 Kids, which means we'll be making cards for our men and women in uniform to send home to their children. I have 2 birthday cards for kids that will be going into my next OWH box. First up is a free colored digi from Dustin Pike. With all the coloring done for me, all I had to do was match up some papers and add a little punched tab with a sentiment & mini brads. The blue panel was embossed with a seeing spots ef.
This is an adorable digi from Spyder's corner that I won just by posting another card using one of her digi images! Lyn cruises blogland for cards made with her images and rewards you if she spots one, so that's how I got this sweet digi! I just loooove these happy little mice:) The image was colored with Copics and I used 2 different colors of bakers twine with a pink button. The sentiment is from SNSS Poppies & Greetings.
If you want some amazing inspiration for making those cards 4 kids, be sure to check out my fellow DT member Shannon's adorable samples over on the S&S blog! They're SO cute you won't want to miss them!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're keeping cool wherever you are today!
