Kids Having Fun!

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. I continue to issue the challenges as our November challenge hostess.

Tomorrow is Universal Children's Day. Let's create a card featuring a child having fun of some type.

A few months ago I just had to buy this fun Children's playground equipment stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Let's Play. I have been wanting to play with it for a while now so this challenge was the perfect opportunity. The stamp set includes animals rather than kids and as this challenge was about kids, I dug out two really old stamps I had which turned out to be the perfect size of this stamp set.

As you can see I created a pivot card using the House Pivot Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I used the curvy die from the Outdoor edges set to curve the grass near the edge of the card. The sentiments use the banner from the Lorna Label Pop Up Card die set.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Such a fun card. How cool that you had kid stamps that worked so well with the playground set!

This is such a fun card and those kids looks like they are having so much fun in the Australian sunshine.

Fun, fun, all those clouds as the kids play!

What a sensational card for today's challenge! I love your pivoting house with its white picket fence and cloudy sky! What a great stage for these kids have fun in the backyard, Frances! I have loved all the great childhood memories today's cards have brought to mind!

Fabulous moving card. Looks like those kids are having the best time!! Wonderful images to make this fun card!

Sabrina said...

What a fun and happy childhood you have depicted here. The swing reminds of the big double A-frame one my father made us - but we never had a slide. That house looks super, too!

Lois said...

What a cute pivot card! There is lots of fun going on in that scene!
