Cooking With Cricut Challenge #81 CARD OUTREACH

This week we have a very special challenge at Cooking With Cricut  It is one of outreach.  There are two little girls we wish to send some love to.

Patty is a 13 years old and suffering from a rare form of cancer.  This is the card I made for her.

This is the first time in a long time that I used only one cartridge to create the card.  And that cartridge is PAISLEY.  All of the papers I used are from the DCWV stack Mango Frost.  I embossed the lower part of the dress and embellished it with some a fuchsia. 

 The tunic top with pants was also embellished with fuchsia gems.  And a pretty two tone flower was added. 

 The handbag is adorned with two fuchsia gems and a pretty two tone flower.   I thought the flip flops brad from Oriental Trading would be a a perfect addition to the card.  

I'm not really sure who made the stamp.  It is one I have had for a long time.  

And for the inside of the card, I used the computer to do the sentiment.  And then added three of those little fuchsia gems and a pretty flower.

If you would like to make a card for Patti, please enter it in our challenge this week and mail it to the address below.

Emily is a little 9 year old girl who has Lukemia. I made this card for her.

The little Chihuahuas were cut from the Cricut Lite PAPER PUPS cartridge.   I added a couple of little flower gems for the dog tags. The grass is a cut from MARTHA STEWART SEASONAL CAKE.  I am not sure again about the stamp I used for the sentiment.  And I completed the card with a yellow gingha, bow.   All of the papers for this card are from the DCWV Whimsy stack.  

Here is the inside of the card.

If you would like to make a card for Emily, please enter it in our challenge.  You may mail the card to Emily at the address below.
