Lawn Fawn Hearts 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! Also, if you are lost in the hop, you can always start at the beginning at the Lawn Fawn blog. Thank you so much for hopping along with us today!

Hi there, welcome to my blog!  I hope you have come from the talented Mary Dawn . When I saw that the talented Kelly Marie Alvarez was putting together a blog hop for Cards for Kids I had to take part because I love the Cards for Kids card drive.  And any excuse to make more cards for them!  So happy your here!  While you are reading this I am at a kids amusement park with my two kids and 13 of there friends and mommies.  Please pray for me! 

I created a set of cards using a fish set from Hero Arts, because there are a lot of good fish jokes online!  And I really like to make cards for the kids with jokes, I find it so easy to find jokes that co ordinate with stamp images that I have. 


What fish goes up the river at 100mph?
      A motor pike!
  
What lives under the sear and carries a lot of people?
     An Octobus!

What fish are musical?
     Tuna fish!

I stamped the fish and than colored them in with pencils. I got the idea of the fish going in different directions from my son Carter's sleeper!  What I did to make a layout for the fish was place the stamps on my fiskars stamp press in a design and than turned it to stamp the fish differently.  I thought I would share this since it made it so much easier.  Here is a photo of my stamp press and my stamps on it, please ignore how lovingly used it looks:



Well there you go thank you for hopping on over here!  Your next stop is the talented Lucy.  I can't wait to see what she has created!

Also just to let you know today is my blogaversary and I am doing little giveaways everyday this week, there is a giveaway the post before this, and later on today I will do another.  :>  Enjoy the hop!
