Lawn Fawn Loves Cards for Kids

LFcardsForKids

Hi All

Today’s post is for a very special cause. Welcome to the Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids Blog Hop! We have all come together today to make cards for a wonderful cause, Cards for Kids! We hope to encourage you to also make cards for this great cause and to have some fun along the way! So please hop along with us, and make sure to leave comments as there will be prizes for commenters and participants! So let's get going! If you've been following the blog hop, you should be arriving from Linda's blog. If you get lost in the hop, you can always start at the beginning at the Lawn Fawn blog. Thank you so much for hopping along with us today!

Using Lawn Fawn stamps is not mandatory to play along. (Of course Lawn Fawn does have some fabulous images that kids love...so they do fit in nicely). The most important thing is to have fun and to create some fun cards for kids. You can see that I chose to use a couple sets of Lawn Fawn stamps… (Critters in the Sea, Bannerific) and also some Hero Arts stamps (the clouds which were in the princess set)

I also used this week's sketch from 2 Sketches for You as a basis for the layout of this card.



I did shift the sentiment box a little.

And just because I think a polka-dotted whale is so fun, here’s a close up of this little sea critter :)

Your next stop on the hop is Kathy. Please play along, there are some great prizes. Most importantly, these cards are going to some kids and their families.

Thanks for hopping by.

Hugs and blessings
