It'a all about the children at Forever Friends

Morning Everyone
Well, another weekend has flown by.  We collected our daughter from university on Saturday.  She has just completed four years of study and should be graduating in July.  Still trying to find room and places for all the stuff she has accumulated over four years.  Still, it is nice to have her home and she is now starting on the difficult task of finding a job.  

Anyway, today sees the start of a new fortnightlychallenge over at Forever Friends Challenges.  Our theme for this fortnight is
Make a card/project for a child

We have two sponsors joining us for this challenge:

I have made two projects for the challenge. 

I used a cute image from A Day for Daisies for this card.  Kept the design quite simple and a minimum of embellishments, some lace, card candi and a crotchet flower.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
A Little Bit Crafty - Kraft it
Crafty Boots - Celebrations
Stamp N Doodle - Anything goes
Pretty Little Ribbon - Lace
Crafts and Me - Use a digi
QKR Stampede - Childrens cards or tags
OSAAT - Use a digi
Love to Create - Something for kids

My second card features a little Forever Friends bear.  I used a rubber stamp from the new Kraft Notes range from Papermania.  I coloured him in using distress inks.  I used some papers from my stash (sorry, not sure where they are from).  I created a heart aperture and matted and layered.  I thought this made an ideal first birthday card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz - No digis allowed
Chocolate, coffee and cards - Use a number
Allsorts - True blue
Kaboodle Doodles - Stripes and/or circles

Sadly, this will be the last Forever Friends challenge.  It is time to say goodbye to these cute little bears and take things in a new direction. 
The good news is that the entire design team is moving over to a brand new weekly challenge blog called Crafty Friends.  The first challenge will go live on June 1st and we hope you will all join us.

Thanks for popping by.  Do hope you will stop by the Forever Friends challenge blog to check out all the details for our last challenge and to feast your eyes on the wonderful inspiration projects from the rest of the design team.
Looking forward to seeing all your entries.
