Jennifer McGuire *Day 5*

Here is our last inspiration card by Jennifer:
Pink, orange, yellow....this card couldn't get any cheerier! The tone on tone stamping in the background is the perfect way to use that great floral stamp. I love the sentiment banner and how it hangs off the edge of the card. Finally, Jennifer's butterfly sparkles and glows!
Here is my take:
Cards for Kids
Here are the last two pictures of children participating in the Cards for Kids card drive. I hope seeing and reading about the children this week has inspired you to send in a cheerful card of your own. And again, details on how to participate can be found HERE. (You can click on each picture of the children to read more about them and their families.)
This is Jennifer's inspiration for my Cards for Kids card. I just LOVE the bright colors and overall layout of this card:
And this is my take: THANKS so much to Jennifer for allowing me to share a bit of her work on my blog this week. You are such an inspiration and teacher for so many stampers!! Thanks also to all of you for your visits and comments this week. You are all the BEST! HUGS! See you tomorrow with a couple Purple Onion Designs cards!
Card #1: Hero Arts (CL156, CG172), Splatter (All Night Media)
Card #2: Elephant (Memory Box), Hero Arts (CG172, CL272, CG139, CL153)

Jennifer's card is so simply gorgeous, it's amazing what she can do with a simple color scheme and design. Jill, I just love your take on the color combo, so warm and gorgeous and that shape is too perfect! I'm in love with that adorable elephant, oh my goodness what a fabulous card for a child.
You both have provided such wonderful inspiration this week, I'm sad to see it end. It was wonderful how you got the word out about Cards for Kids too!
Bless you, Jill,
