Simon Says Challenge - A Card for a Child

Good morning ! A quick post from me this morning as I'm off out for the day.

This week on Simon Says Challenge......

The challenge is to make a card for a child.

"The Design team have all used stamps by Boefjes on their creations. You don't have to but we would like to see you use them if you have them :-)

The Design Team are also sending their cards to a child through Post Pals or Make a Child Smile. All the children on these sites have life threatening illnesses and are so courageous. All they ask is that you send a child a card to bring some joy into their lives and smiles on their faces. If you have a similar charity in your own Country then please send your card to them. I know they will appreciate it.

Heidi will be giving away a $25 shopping spree to the Simon Says Stamp Store and she will pay for the shipping too :-) There are lots of new products in store too, so many in fact it is difficult to keep up with them ! Every day gorgeous new stuff is arriving :-)"

The DP's are BasicGrey "Granola"

The map stamp was a bargain I picked up from e-bay - a whole 99p !!! I stamped the image onto card, tore around the edges and then distressed it with lots of brown and black distress ink.

The gorgeous little Pirate is Luuk from Stamps by Boefjes and he has been coloured with ProMarkers. You can buy a gorgeous range of these stamps at Simon Says Stamp. Just follow the link I have given.

The sentiment is from a set by Woodware and I have used Spellbinders Shapeabilities "Fancy Tags" and added some distress ink to it and a gold marker pen around the outside edge.

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave. I am so grateful to you.
