Cards For "Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards For Kids" Blog Hop

Hey there! I was happy to participate in the Cards for Kids drive hosted by Kelly Marie of Lawn Fawn. The Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids blog hop starts today. If you want to start from the beginning, start here.

I choose to make cards for Kennedy and his family (13 yr old brother, Kaleb and mom, Kristen). Kennedy is 6 years old and was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) earlier this year. You can read more about CML here. He is such a cutie! I can relate to 6 year old boys, since my son Kalino just turned 7.
I made Kennedy a card with some cute aliens from the Greetings, Earthling set by Stampin' Up. If he's like my son, he'll get a kick out of the wacky aliens and the "Greetings' Earthling!" flag. I used my Copic markers to do all the coloring. I'm very new at using Copics and have less than 2 dozen colors so far. They are fun to play with!

Next, I made this card for Kennedy's brother, Kaleb. The stamps are from the Everyday Button Bits set by Papertrey Ink. I used my Copic markers to color in the bike and add "spokes" to the button wheels. I sponged over some Hero Arts clouds that I cut out with my Silhouette.

And finally, I made this card for Kennedy's mom, Kristen. I used the Papertrey Ink set, Everyday Button Bits. I also managed to incorporate some baker's twine on this card. The paper, buttons, and ribbon are all from Papertrey Ink.

The next stop on this blog hop is Tanis and her blog Card Confessions. Have a good one!
