August Card Chain Challenge

Deborah hosted another fun Card Chain Challenge in August. I look forward to this each month!

This is the card I sent to Vera in Indonesia. I am confident it will arrive very soon. I told Vera "No peeking". I printed the Hero Arts DigiKit Seed & Pod Papers onto printable fabric. Then I cut it out and turned it into ribbon and flowers for this card. I also used Deborah's great sketch along with Hero Arts sentiment and background stamps. 

Isabelle sent me this delightfully fun dog card all the way from France. It really made me smile! Thanks so much, Isabelle!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids Blog Hop

Hello and 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 have fun along the way, too! 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 are lost in the hop, you can always start at the beginning at the Lawn Fawn blog.

If you have arrived from Carly Robertson's blog you are in the right place. Is she talented or what?

Here is my first card using stamps by Lawn Fawn (critters in the 'burbs). The kitties are stamped on scrap papers, the tree is stamped on a vintage spelling book page, the sun is made from felt, and the butterflies are from my jewelry drawer.

Here is my second card using stamps by Hero Arts (CL135 I Love My Cat; CL153 Happy Day Animals, H5428 Hello Flags). I wanted the focus to be on the colorful flags (again stamped on scrap papers) but wanted to add the cute cat and dog, too.

Your next stop is Latrice Murphy's blog. Another talented stamper and scrapbooker! Thank you so much for hopping along with us today!
