Send A Smile For Kids Cards

A while ago, I posted about a charitable blog called Send A Smile 4 Kids, who collects donated handmade cards to be distributed to children while they are inpatient at children's hospitals.  I suggested this project to my card crop group, and we have collected several cards, which I will be mailing out as soon as this nasty stomach bug stops invading my intestines!

I finally finished four birthday cards for this cause, even though the current call is for spring and/or non-religious Easter cards.  I had these all stamped up and mostly colored when I realized they are not asking for birthday cards.  But I am sending them anyways, because, well, I'm sure they can use them!  I will make some others that fit the category before I send those from the group out, however.

So, here are my cards.  I used the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Farm Animals clear stamp set, and colored each with Polychromos colored pencils.  I added a simple frame around each with my black micron pen.

 Aren't these birthday animals just so adorable?  I love them, and know they're sure to bring a smile to these kids!

Here is a link to the Send A Smile 4 Kids blog.  

Hope you get an opportunity to visit the blog and check out all the wonderful things these ladies are doing.

I am adding my cards to the The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge, and, since they fit the themes, to these other challenges:
Seize The Birthday Challenge - Anything goes

Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge - Color something 

Addicted to Stamps - Anything goes

Cas-ual Fridays Challenge - One layer

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you have managed to escape this dreaded stomach bug.  I'm behind in the Daily Marker challenge because of it....but finally able to stay with it long enough to get these cards finished and posted.  

Hope to see you back here soon.
