Another card for a Post Pal and 2 challenges!

Firstly I would like to Thank everyone who posted a message regarding yesterdays post and have agreed to send cards etc to Post Pals. If we bring a smile to one child's face then it is all worthwhile.

My card for today covers 2 challenges and is another card that will be sent to a Post Pal child, the first challenge is for Papertake Weekly where they want you to follow this wonderful sketch by Dawny P.

The second challenge is for Dare You 2 Digi stamp . The challenge here is to use Gingham & Stitching and send your card to Post Pals in order to qualify for entry into our prize draw, pop over to the DU2DS blog to get full details of the conditions of entry.

You may stitch by hand, sewing machine, faux etc. Don't forget your image needs to be digi. Post Pals are also sponsoring half of the prize there this week as well.

So here is my card for today which follows the sketch on Papertake and has all the elements for DU2DS.

It features PP by Making Memories Ethan collection, I love this paper! The Orange strip across the middle is fabric and the image is a freebie from Dustin Pike.

I have chosen to send this card and the one I made yesterday to 2 children on Post Pals, one is Joe B and the other is Zachary H, I will be enclosing a letter with each of them and over the weekend I want to alter 2 baby milk tins and fill then with items to send with the cards. I will post the pictures of these when I have made them.

I hope that some of you choose to help by sending a card or letter to bring a smile to these children's faces.

I hope they like what I am sending

Hi Maz, I think your card is absolutely gorgeous and the image is so cute, it's bound to bring a huge smile to the little boy you're sending it to and also the card you made yesterday which I thought was so bright and cheerful, also very creative! I read that you have personal experience with your Grandson of just how hard it is for the child and the family when a child has cancer and I'm so glad that you'll be supporting PostPals too, I think it's a fantastic Charity and I'm so glad that I found out about it. Thanks for spreading the word Maz and good luck in the draw. Chris x
