7 Kids College Fund Challenge #8: Thank You

Hello all! Happy Wednesday :)

Are you ready for another 7 Kids College Fund Challenge?!  Well, you better be because the PRIZE this week is a great one.  I wish I could enter, lol.  The PRIZE this week is a whopping $75 Gift Certificate to the 7 Kids College Fund store!! Tab has decided to give such a generous prize to say thank you for all the well wishes that she received for Aaron.  We all hope that he's doing well and still wish him the best.

Well, I guess before you can win the prize, you have to know what the challenge is.  The challenge this week couldn't be any easier and more appropriate: we want to see creations with a "Thank You" theme.  See, easy right?

For my challenge card, I've used the super cute Whiff of Joy Henry Mouse Hugging Heart stamp.  This image remains to be one of my favorite Whiff of Joy images ever - just look at how precious he is!  And he's very versatile.  He was colored with Distress Reinkers with Small Koi Water Brush.  After I photographed the card, I actually used my Clear Atyou Spica Glitter Pen to add some dazzle to the heart, but I was too lazy to take a picture.  You'll just have to trust me that it added a nice effect to it :)

OH!! Did you notice the gorgeous papers?!  Well, 7 Kids College Fund now carries the October Afternoon Fly a Kite and and Thrift Shop 8x8 paper pads! I just adore these papers and it actually pains me to have to cut them up, but when I do, I am always pleased with how my card turns out.  I know that once you see the papers in this pad, you will also fall in love with them, too.  I've used papers from the Fly a Kite pad.

For this card, I went with a cleaner, less-embellished look.  The added some green pearls and some die cuts from the Shapeabilities Doodle Part set, added some lace to soften the design, and punched out the border using the Martha Stewart Doily Hearts Edge Punch.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Ticket Sentiments and the outside die was cut using the NEW Whimsy Stamps Ticket Die from the Shapeology Collection.

Yummy  October Afternoon Papers:
