Sending Sunshine

Inside: Sending sunny thoughts to brighten your day!

I’m part of an Angel Swap where we receive a name and we send the recipient a card. This is for a lady that recently bought house and has been fixing it up. Just had surgery on her foot and is wearing a boot. And could just use some happy mail!

I had been wanting to use this cottage from Beccy’s Place and knew it would be perfect since she just bought a house. I printed out a second copy and cut out the two flowers bushes in front an the vine over the door so I could pop dot them and give them dimension. I used an older sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #199.

Eaten by a Bear?

Eaten by Bears

So a friend of mine has been having some trying times since her 3rd child came along. During the holidays if it could go wrong it did. She was laid on my heart so I decided to send her a card of encouragement because parenthood can be trying! I found this saying on the internet and thought it was hilarious and so her!!
At the end of the day…
Have any of your Children been eaten by a bear?
No.
See, you’re a good mom.

So I went looking for bear images. I found “Happy Stanley” at Beccy’s Place. His expression was perfect but he had a shirt collar and tie on so I asked Beccy for permission to have my husband remove the shirt and tie. She gave us permission and my wonderful husband made Stanley plain!! The grin is perfect for the saying and just makes me smile each time I see it!!
It took a week to get there…I couldn’t believe it! She received it Friday and said it was perfect timing as she was needing encouragement that day!! God is always perfect in his timing!

I used Atlantic Hearts Sketch #196 that I had saved so this card fits the March Card Inspiration Challenge – Favorites Category. It also fits Beccy’s Place March Challenge – make a card using any image of hers (even free ones) for a chance to win free digital stamps.

Vibrant Funny Friend

I had a birthday order that was Christian theme, likes yellow and bright colors. So I found a Christian saying that the lady liked and then set out to make the card. I was struggling so I went to My Princess-peaces’ gallery as she is the “lift” category of the March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. I lifted this card.

Since there is more bling on this card then I usually use I’m going to enter this one into the Product category – bling, shine, etc. I lifted another one of her cards that I will enter into that category.

Xbox Minecraft birthday

So I had a request for a masculine birthday card that was Xbox/Minecraft themed. This is what I came up with. I found the minecraft background and printed on Bazzill white. Then I used the SVG file at Bird’s Cards to make the controller. It was a big hit with the birthday boy!
