The Next Level;Sketch
Pile it On;Buttons Plus challenges
Pink Elephant Fav colour Combo,Pink /Green.
The Crafty pad; Buttons
Charisma Cardz: Buttons
Image .Dovecraft butterfly stamp.
Buttons from stash
Flower K &Co,
Ribbon;Crafts u Love
Papermania ;Brads
Image coloured ;copics

This weeks challenge at Simon Says This week our challenge for you is to make a card or project for a sick child. We all know how GREAT it feels to get happy mail for no reason, so imagine how a child who is ill would feel to get happy mail....I can just imagine the BIG GRIN on their little faces!! It will bring such happiness to them, so we thought we would support Post Pals and Make a Child Smile and get some cards to those children who could use a "hug"!!!So i have made a 2nd card like the one i made for my daughter's birthday this time made a book mark to match.The book mark is for DCD challenge as this weeks theme is "Anything But A Card"so im hoping the book mark fits the bill.
