EAD Designs Blog Hop - Helping Miss Emma

Hello and welcome to my blog!  

Today is going to be special!  There's a group of us that are EAD Designs fans so we decided to inspire each other to use our goodies!  For those of you that don't remember, EAD Designs created vinyl stickers and rub-ons.  Awesome products but the company closed up shop over a year ago.

What all of our projects will have in common is that we are all using EAD Goodies and our challenge is:

Kid-Friendly


All our cards from today's blog hop will be going to a special little girl named Emma.  Please read about the card drive hosted by Kelly, who we're so excited is joining our hop today.  She chats about the card drive on THIS POST.

Here's how the card drive for Emma inspired me:


We want to shower Emma with cards, to help cheer her up.  She's dealing with cancer, and all cards going to her should be happy, cheerful, and help take her mind off the heavy stuff.  I read on Kelly's post that she likes blue, purple and green, so my card focuses on those colors.  Kelly's got some important guidelines to follow for those who plan to send cards for Emma, so be sure to read up on that.  

Remember Stampin' Up!'s Pretty Princess?  I do love this whimsical set.  It's fun to color.  This princess sports some bling (iridescent glitter glue) on her crown, dress and wands.  The purple flower/ribbon accent was something I picked off a store-bought card a while back and saved.  The ribbon is deep purple, but looks almost black in the photo!


This EAD Designs rub-on sentiment, which came from a birthday set, is PERFECT for matching up with a fairy wand!  The sentiment inside the card says, "Wishing you smiles & laughter."


There is surprise blog candy in this hop!  The more comments you leave on the blogs that are participating, the more chances you have to win!

Want another chance for a prize?!  Make a kid-friendly card for Emma!  We'd love for you to join in the card drive!  Check out these guidelines over at Kelly's blog first, make a card for Emma, send it to Kelly and link up over on Amy's blog!

Commenting/Card link up open until Monday, March 24th at 11:59 pm pacific
