Dad/Special Guy Cards 4 Kids Challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids

It's the 1st Saturday of the month and that means it is time for another challenge at the Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge Blog.  The theme for this challenge is Dad/Special Guy Cards 4 Kids or Anything Goes 4 Kids.  This challenge no longer has sponsors so you will be participating for pride not prize.

Send a Smile 4 Kids charity is dedicated to collecting and distributing handmade cards to children who are inpatient at Children's Hospitals.  Please send us your handmade kids' cards for holidays, birthdays, and everyday cheer.  Help us put a smile on our kids' faces.

Dad/Special Guy Cards 4 Kids Card Recipe

I was perusing Etsy to get an idea for this month's card and I found the sentiment - Dad - You're One in a Minion.  I knew that was the sentiment I wanted to use.  It just so happened I had some Minions that I'd cut out with my Cricut year ago.  I put them together and put them in a container for later projects.  Guess what - this is just the later project I had in mind.  I typed the sentiment in Word and printed it in 3 different fonts.  I cut out the one I like the best and then took Momento Paris Dusk ink and used it to ink around the edges.  I found a blue background with polka dots that I liked.  And I found another blue piece of card stock in my left over bin to put behind the sentiment.  I inked around all the edges with the Momento Ink.  I popped up the Minion and the sentiment and added 3 yellow enamel dots.  Then I put it on a card base.  Anything with googly eyes and Minions is adorable.



Make a card and join the challenge.  You can also send your cards to Send a Smile 4 Kids collection points to help those families with sick children.

Have a great day, eat some chocolate and be kind to everyone.
