Fab n Funky Challenge - 7 March 2012

I made this card and posted on my blog the other day.  The image and backing papers were from Joanna Sheen's Cardmakers Year CD.  As I had some images leftover on the sheet I printed off another sheet of backing paper and made four cards for the Docrafts Craft for Life Appeal.  This saves the images getting dog-eared in a box and means the cards can be sold to help a worthwhile charity.  I take some into our local shop, give some to my aunt to take into her local shop (but normally they don't get that far - the cards get kept by her and she'll give them the money!!) or I sell them on my regular charity stall (for these cards sold I give the 100% raised to the Craft for Life Appeal).
As you can see I have made these cards into Easter cards, keeping them simple as I know funds are very limited for people these days.  I have just done simple matting and layering and the cards have been finished off with sentiments off the computer and Papermania Glitterations.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

Papercrafting Journey - Anything goes
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
I Brake for Challenges - Easter
My Mum's Craft Shop - Spring is springing

Wow!!! I really like your cards, you are right funds are low and so people don't want to spend to much.

Thank you for joining us at Fab 'n' Funky this week.

Spring has definitely sprung on these Easter cards. Nice changeup in the layouts, I'd have a hard time choosing one! =) Thanks for joining us for the Anything Goes challenge at PCJ! ~Christy

Lovely cards, Kym. I love your pretty image and the way each card in the set has it's own design but are similar to each other. Thanks for sharing with us at IBFS.
Hugz,
