Daring Cardmaker Challenge - Post Pals

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather we are getting at the moment. I was a bit fed up last night as someone ploughed into the back of me while I was waiting at a roundabout. Luckily no one was hurt but my poor car is not very pretty now. So while blog hopping to cheer myself up I came across this challenge on Enfys blog where she had made a card for the Daring Carmakers challenge . This week the challenge was to "Make a Child Smile" and involved making a card to send to one of the children at Post Pals an organisation that helps to brighten a sick child's day. Pop over there and have a read, I tell you it puts your own life into perspective. I decided to make this card for a little girl called Amy and will be posted off tonight. The image is one of Sam's from Lilyboo's Boutique and the papers are downloads from Funky Hand (Minty Madness).

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. that is such a lovely card. I'm sure Amy will be thrilled with it! I hope you are not feeling the after effects of your accident now - its always a shock.

  2. lovely card Max ,Amy will love it - i need to get over to that site and check out this very worthy cause

  3. Your ‘Sweet As A Cupcake’ card is simply beautiful Maxine and I’m sure that Amy will be so thrilled to receive it.

    You’re right about the children’s stories, they are hard to read and I guess it brings it home even more when you can relate to what they are going through.

    Thanks for joining us this week and I hope that now you’ve found us you’ll be back each Friday morning to play some more.
