Cute Card Thursday

This week the theme of the challenge is
A card for a child
Ali from
Clevercuts is sponsoring the challenge this week and providing lots of
fabulous Polly and Pip stamps to give away to one lucky participant drawn at random next week. Do drop by and check out the Clevercuts shop, there are loads of fabulous stamps and other interesting bits and pieces

I made this card yesterday for my nephew before this challenge was announced but had not shown it so here it is now.
It is a 3fold card in very pale blue. I cut a section from a paper from a Dovecraft designer pack and layered it at an angle onto a piece of blue card which had been embossed with Cuttlebug number collage folder.
The number and greeting are simple peel-offs.

Over on the Bubbly Funk Forum we have a weekly challenge going on to make cards for a Think Pink Gift & Card Sale.

These challenges are the build up to 2 fabulous events taking place later this year.
We want to make a difference so why not join us at Bubbly Funk for a the first event in September.......the
"Think Pink"
We are so excited to announce that our Cybercrop this year will be a fabulous charity event with proceeds going to Breast Cancer Care (Registered Charity Number 1017658)
The MASSIVE two day crop will be held on the weekend of the
20th and 21st September 2008.
Caroline will have some stunning kits on sale with a percentage of the kit price going to the charity.
The two day crop will be filled with fantastic classes, games and fun!

All we are asking is that you voluntarily donate some of the items you make for our fabulous
"Think Pink Card and Gift Sale"
to be held in West Sussex on 18th October 2008.
The sale is being run by Di O and a friend of hers, Emma whose sister has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer.
And, wait for it.......there will be between 80 and 100 guests attending this very special amazing is that!
100% of the proceeds of the sale will go to Breast Cancer Care.
This is an incredible opportunity to raise funds for an amazing and worthy charity that continues to work hard to provide the highest standards of treatment, support and care for Breast Cancer patients.
