SAS4K challenge

Hi Everybody,

Today I have a card that I made to enter into the SAS4K challenge.  This challenge is to make a Spring or Easter card suitable for a child (as always).  I made several of these and they will be added to the cards I will be sending to Lynnette to take to Stollery Childrens' Hospital in Edmonton.

I love the way these cards turned out and they are easy peasy to make.  I used a center step tutorial on Split Coast Stampers for the base.  Beacause i wanted the center panel to be a little wider, I changed up the measurements a little and made the side panels 3/4" instead of 1".
I used an oval nestability to make the mask and sponged around it to highlight the area where the little chickie goes.  Also used nestabiltiies for the sentiment label. 

I have seen many variations of the chick and so not sure who to give credit for that.  I used Stampin Up punches- large oval and scallop circle and sponged the edges.  And of course, googlie eyes and a tuft of feather.  The eggshell is a Hot Off the Press clear stamp called Small Easter Chick.  I used markers to color the stamp, stamped it, used the same oval punch and then trimmed off the top chick part.  Put everything together, and I was done.

Hope you liked my card today.

Now I am off to get the SAS4K package ready to mail.

Wishing a Happy Day to you.

What a darling Easter card for a child in one of our hospitals. Thanks so much for sharing it with us for the challenge and especially for sending it to our Canadian SAS4Kids!

A beautiful card for Easter. Love the little chick with the feather on his head. A beautiful card for someone little to love. It will brighten a child's day.
Thanks from Lynnette and SAS$KIDS.
Got back home from Sask gone for three days so I haven't picked up the mail as of yet. Helped my brother and his wife move my mom out of one nursing home into another.
What a big job this was sorting, packing and boxing stuff up.
I hope that she will receive more care in the place that my brother found for her. She has really declined since the last time I saw her.

Wow! you won some digi stamps great for you! I just saw the news on the SAS4kids blog in the states.
Hope everything is great with you.
I have been quite sick this week so haven't done a lot of anything this week. Hope I get better soon as I need to go to Edmonton this week. Flu bug has found me.
Talk to you later.
