Stampin' for the Weekend DT & Stamp Something DT

Good morning!! If you're looking for the Stamp Something blog hop then please scroll down to the previous post.

Today I have 2 cards to share, both DT cards.

First up is Stampin' for the Weekend. Our challenge to you this week is to make a card that will put a smile on someone's face, cheer them up!

There is a 2nd part to this challenge, which is optional - we would love if you were to mail your card to a child on the Post Pals site. You could even make the card with a specific child in mind. It would really make their day!

All we ask is that you keep images and messages light and child friendly :)

The design team have each made a card for a specific child on the Post Pals site and we will be mailing our cards to them.

About Post Pals:
Post Pals is an organisation that was set up to create smiles for children who suffer from life threatening and long term illnesses. We ask people to log on to send the children featured on the website ‘happy post’. When a child is very ill, often a visit from the postman can make their day. A cheery card or letter can make them feel less alone and bring welcome distraction from what they go through each day.

We are being sponsored by the wonderful Katharina from Whiff of Joy and she has very genrously offered THREE stamps up for the prize, 2 of which are from the Happy Mail Collection. Please check out the SFTW blog to see which stamps they are :) I have used one on my card today. 

I made my card for Alice P. Alice herself loves card making so I hope my card can give her a litle inspiration while also putting a smile on her face.

I am also entering this card into the Whiff of Joy Challenge which is "Brown, Yellow and a Colour of your choice"  -  I chose green. 


Next up is Stamp Something - and our challenge this week is "2 of Something". I've used 2 patterned papers and my image is of 2 little people :)
We are being sponored by Karen's Doodles

My image is from Karen's store. It is called First Kiss - aren't they little cuties!! I have coloured using copic sketch markers. Added a little stickles here and there for a bit of sparkle ;)

The 'admit one' ticket is a Tim Holtz stamp which I've stamped using Momento Cocoa ink and distressed with Antique Linen. I've sewn the heart button on to the ribbon to keep it in place. They are both gifts I recieved from kind friends.

The papers are Hampstead by PaperMania.. I'm loving the designer ranges they are coming up with lately. They are also textured and feel very luxurious!! My flowers have been inked and stickled .. boy do I go through a lot of stickles, lol!!

Thanks so much for visiting me today. Please don't be shy - say hello :)

Don't forget that Stamp Something are having a blog hop this week to celebrate their 2nd birthday!! Some of the DT are offering candy on their own blogs and Simon Says Stamp are offering $20 gift coupon for our overall winner on the Stamp Something blog! My candy is of the surprise variety!! I LOVE surprises and I also love to send surprises!! Leave a comment on my blog hop post below to be in with a chance of winning a ... well you'll have to wait and see, won't you, lol!!

Have fun and happy crafting!
