Child's Happy Birthday Card
The sketch on CPS-Card Sketches today lent itself well to this birthday card for a child. I needed a simple idea. Our church will be co-sponsoring a "Jubilee Celebration" with another church in September. The idea behind the event is "to provide much needed blessings and relief to people who need help meeting some of life's most basic necessities." It is a free event and will include a clothing tent, grocery tent, commerce tent (furniture, housewares, gift certificates, etc), children's tent (toys, candy, activities), haircuts, family photos, chair massage and employment booth (as well as other things). Our church is collecting LARGE containers of laundry detergent, as this is an expense that quite often these families can't afford. I have decided that I would love to make some cards for the event. I'm sure that greeting cards are something that are considered a non-essential expense. My goal is to make children's birthday cards, so that families can make a child's birthday special. I'm going to try to make as many as I can, so needed a quick and simple idea. I'm sure that other kinds of cards would be appreciated as well, but have decided to make this my focus for now. The stamp set is from Hero Arts and has many different cute animal faces. They include an elephant, lion, frog, owl, hippo, tiger, koala and others I can't remember. I plan to make many of these cards using the different animals. They are colored with Prisma pencils. The birthday sentiment is SU, but don't know the name. It is the first set I purchased in the early 90's. The oval is a punch that I own. Thanks for stopping by today to take a look. Blessings to you!
