I am so honored and grateful to be part of this amazing hop today. There is so much talent and inspiration to be found out there today....and for such an amazing cause.
Now onto the cards......
This first one is one I made to add to the collection I have going for Cards for Kids. My daughter and I have made quite a few and they will FINALLY be going in the mail this week.....
I used the Be Happy Set by Hero Arts and that yummy Urban Prairie line by Basic Grey...just can't go wrong with these 2 companies! :)
Next up comes one I have been saving to post. I got the idea from Nichol Magourik. She made these darling coloring books and I wanted to badly to make some...you can see hers HERE.
Here is my version of it... (I apologize for the BAD pictures...my camera is on it's last (flash) legs...)
and this one...
I made 2 of each kind. The inside looks like this: I forgot to add that I used my Silhouette sketch pens on these.

I used metallic water color paints on the waves. you can find them here
