In My Garden Challenge

Hello my friends!  Before I get into all the fun challenge stuff I want to take this opportunity to say that my thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families after the horrific events that took place today in Boston. 

Today is the start of another challenge for the Sunshine Mail Foundation.  The theme for this challenge is 'In My Garden' and it runs from April 15th thru May 1st.

The sponsor for this challenge is  Oak Pond Creations and to be entered in the random drawing you need to:

1.  Link your card to the challenge post starting on the 15th.
2.  Post on your blog or SCS Gallery about our April Card Drive (see details below) with the link to Sunshine Mail blog.
3.  MOST IMPORTANT is send in cards!!  Send in 1 or more, signed cards, and does not have to be the card entered in the challenge.   CLICK HERE for Card guidelines. 

Now Oak Pond Creations is also having a wonderful give away for the Birthday Bash on their blog.  Check out their blog for more info.  You won't want to miss out on this huge haul of wonderful stuff!!

Sunshine Mail Foundation is having an April Card Drive because they really are in need of cards for their kids, so you should enter to win a fabulous prize package:  JoAnn's $20 gift card, Teddy Bo gift voucher, Spellbinder die, Card Makere magazine, unmounted rubber stamps from Unity, Layers of Love, Inkadinkadoo, Stampsmith, Stampin' Up ink pad, embellishments of flowers, charms and more from Little Yellow Bicycle.

Here is the card I made for this challenge.  This cutie of a digital image is called 'Kona the Gardener' and he's such a big help in the garden.  He's colored with lots of COPICS and the patterned paper used is from an older 6x6 paper pad from BasicGrey called 'Max and Whiskers'. 


Hope everyone will enter the chance to win all these fabulous prizes.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
