Cards, cards, and more cards.....

Hi! Hope everyone had a fantastic Fourth of July! We didn't do too much b/c of the rainy weather but tonight we are having a campfire with friends.
Just thought I would share what I have been up to lately (forgive the quality of the pics, my camera battery was dying as soon as I turned it on, so I took a bunch quickly!) ....Cards, cards, and more cards for Jennifer's Card Drive. I have had so much fun with these! I love making cards for kids because the possiblities are endless....ideas just kept popping in my head!
Here are some more pics....This first "set" are all joke cards. The question is on the front of the card and the punchline is on the inside along with some stickers....I also made these...
The first two are for Taylor and Lauren. The girls have these fun things inside....

I found these fun pads at Cracker Barrell last week. The entire pad was too thick for the cards so I tore off about half and used a brad to attach them together and then adhered it into the card.

And for Samuel, I put this in his card....

I also made these...
Inside the girls cards were little fashion sticker books just like the dinosaur sticker book above and in the first card for Samuel was this...
I used the Blackboard Robot Chipboard from Cosmo Cricket for him to decorate. :)
These are probably my favorite...
The top one opens to reveal a little gift of storytime for Samuel....

The bottom two cards are for the girls and the mini markers on the front are for coloring the inside of the card...

I used one of my Hero Arts stamps to make a coloring sheet right on the inside of the card.
If you are interested in creating a card for Jennifer's card drive, go check it out (there is a Card Drive for Kids link on the right hand side of her blog). I love the thought of putting a smile on a child's face. I'm sure I will be making more.
Thanks for all of your sweet comments from the last post and yes, Erin... the Flip camera is awesome and I will be making a scrapping video soon. I promise. Keep checking back! Be back soon...have a great weekend!
