Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids Blog Hop

Hello hoppers, welcome to my stop on the Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids Blog Hop! This blog hop is meant to promote the awesome card drive that is Card for Kids where crafters create cards for sick children and their families. I know this is a big hop but its full of inspiration, chances to win great prizes, and crafters doing good so I'm glad to see you are still hopping away! If you came from Donna's blog you are on the right track but if you've gotten a little lost or want to start at the beginning you can always head to Lawn Fawn.

Today I have several cards and a digital FREEBIE to share with you. So when trying to create a bunch of cards its good to have a simple design and embellies that you can have in bunches. Well the elephant tag on my card is a printable tag that I created using an image from Free Pretty Things for You. A great source for printable tags and images! I added a colored background and a little thought bubble so the cute elephant image would be a usable tag.

To use this tag simply right click and save the picture. Put a whole bunch of the desired size into a word document. Print and stamp a saying. I rounded the corners and added some ink. You will be able to create some great cards for kids in a snap.

Also I know that its easy to create cute cards for girls but I wanted to have some guy cards to send as well. I think Basic Grey's Obscure line works great for boy cards so I made two simple cards with the punch-outs and papers from the line. Remember to leave comments throughtout the hop for your chance to win. Next up is Marilyn's blog. Happy hopping!
