A Card To Bring A smile To A Sick Child for Simon Says Challenge

Hi everyone,
Sorry i've not been to visit any of you for a few days but other things kept getting in the way, you know how they do, well i was all ready to go blog hopping last night but after reading a comment left for me by the lovely Ann (please pay her a visit and join in her candy its for a very worthwhile cause) you can pop over and see her here
and read all about it.
So last night i just had to join in and make a card to send to Post Pals and as i am not clever enough to blog hop and make a card at the same time i chose to do a card :)
Please have some tissue's to hand when visiting Post Pals my heart goes out to all the children and there family's and i would love to make each and everyone of them a card, this one will be the first i have done but not the last i hope to do many more and help bring a little happiness to those dear little children.
And here is the card i made and will be sending to someone at Post Pals
i do hope you will join in to make someone smile :0)
I am also entering it into Simon Says Challenge
which is to make a card or project for a sick child.
I have used some new stamps i got from the craft fair i went to last weekend
the image is from Little Trumpettes, Marie Plane Collection and the text stamps came with them, i coloured it with a red promarker for her dress and the for the skin tone i used a coloursoft pencil blended with sansador as i dont have a pro marker in the right colour,
i used my new nesties which i love and Su scalloped circle punch, the just for you text was free in a magazine and cardstock and papers from my stash.
I had set myself a challenge to use just one colour on this card and chose red
as it was my fav when i was a child but somehow gold had to creep in lol.
oh almost forgot i did a nestie for inside too :)
Well thats all for now folks have a fabulous weekend and i promise to visit your fabby blogs this weekend and see what you've all been up to :0)
Big hugzz to all of you bye for now Val xxx
