Freshly Made Sketch with Butterflies and Basic Grey

Ever since I read on the blog "Send A Smile 4 Kids" about the need for cards for a children's hospital in Iowa, I've started making more for kids. There current challenge is to use things with wings for kids. I saw that they need Mother's Day cards by April 30 for the kids to give to their moms. So this Basic Grey challenge #65 to make Mother's Day cards using Basic Grey was perfect. This sketch from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #28  is also perfect for so many possibilities. I'm sure I'll use it multiple times. I love making Mother's Day cards even though my mom is home with Jesus now, so I enjoy finding others I can give one to and I remember good things about my own mom while I make it. I hope some of you can send cards in this way, too. May God richly bless you!

Pretty! Love the colors - the pastels together with that strong pink ribbon and the darker floral background and the white just sets off those butterflies perfectly! =) Thanks for joining us for the Things with Wings challenge at SAS4K! ~Christy

Thank you so much for making this Mother's Day card for one of our kids inpatient in a children's hospital on Mother's Day and also for entering it in our Things with Wings challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids! That lucky child will be so proud to give such a lovely card to his or her Mom or Grandma! Our new challenge starting this weekend is just that- Mother's Day or Father's Day cards FROM our kids, so come back again!
