7 Kids College Fund Fun!

Happy Saturday, crafty friends! I hope you're enjoying a beautiful and crafty weekend! :o)

Today the 7 Kids College Fund Design Team is featuring the adorable stamps from SugarPea Designs! You can find all of our cards showcased on the 7 Kids Blog, where one lucky commenter there will win a $25 gift certificate to the 7 Kids Store! :o)

For my card, I played with the precious SugarPea set titled Tweet Friend! This is my first contribution for this month's I Feel the Love Project recipients: sweet baby Violet (who is battling leukemia and currently receiving chemotherapy and blood transfusions), as well as her parents to encourage them along.

I made this for Violet's parents, to bring extra blessings and sweetness to their home.
How cute is this stamp?! It comes with several wonderful sentiments, including the "Bless your nest" that I chose. I colored this little sweetheart with Copics after sponging her sky with Tumbled Glass distress ink and a cloud template. Star Dust sparklifies several areas of my image, including the tiny little egglets. The whimsical tree and nest were a little intimidating at first, but they were fun to color. :o)
My image is framed with Marianne Design Anja's Vintage Ornaments 2, which I've inked with Faded Jeans distress ink. My pink floral panel is trimmed with a Memory Box Fleur de Lis Border, also inked to coordinate.

The pretty papers are from the Front Porch collection by Pebbles. I cut apart a Memory Box Butterfly Vine Border to scatter sunshiny butterflies throughout my card, meant to deliver healing light and strength to the entire family. My pearl accents, including the border beneath my sentiment, are from Recollections. I hope with all of my heart that this brings a smile to this precious family.

Be sure to flutter on over to the 7 Kids Blog and comment for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the 7 Kids Store! Plus you'll be inspired by the work of my talented teamies. :o) Have a blessed and beautiful day!
