Cards for Kids

Hello!   Today was a snow day for us as we were under Blizzard warning, there was blowing snow everywhere!  My hubby stayed home and did some work.  It was nice and relaxing as I made some cards, played with the kids, read my book, made a homemade soup for lunch and hubby made some amazing chilli for dinner! I have another card to share today (underneath is another post today) I made this card for two challenges.  The Hero Arts Friendship and Valentines Challenge is on right now.  And this card also works for the Moxie Fab World: Start to Finish Challenge   This card is also for Jennifer McGuires Card Drive for kids.  I am making 4 of them one for each girl and I will be working on some boy cards next.  I love this card as I think it's perfect for kids.....  Here is the outside:



I wanted to make a fun whimsical card for the kids.  Here is the inside:




The butterflies pop out when the card is opened!  I think that kids will like it, my daughter did!  It's unexpected and fun!  I hope it makes there day brighter.  Here is the card halfway opened I think it gives you an idea of how to make it:



Isn't this card just the cutest?  I can't take the credit for the idea I learnt it last year when I was part of an SU 10-4-10 group.  I colored the butterflies with my new Derwent and Prisma pencils (Christmas present!)

Products used:  Bazill cardstock, HA Cling Butterflies, HA Sentiment, SU Chocolate Chip Ink, Derwent Colorsoft and Prisma Pencils, Ribbon, Bo Bunny PP.

I read a lot.  My friend suggested that I share what I am reading on my blog, so I thought why not?  I just read:




It's a book I have had for a while and read a long time ago and reread (love when you can do that!)  It was really good I enjoyed it

And I just devored: My gosh why didn't anyone ever tell me how funny Janet Evanovich is?  Laughed so hard!  Must read more!  I love mysteries!

Hope you all have a fabulous week!
