My 2nd Jellypark Post Pals Card

I am sharing the card i made with the 2nd Jellypark image for the Post Pals children. This one I sent to a lad called Charlie who, like me, is a gooner (Arsenal fan for those who don't know what it means), so I just had to go with red, white, blue & yellow colours.

These Jellypark images are just so gorgeous and versatile. I coloured mine with pro markers and the skin with copics, quite please as I'm just starting with them. I added white gel pen to the balloons to get the shiny bit & the spots on the scarf. Its quite a simple card but I used lots of layers to add colours. The sentiment is Jillibean Soup alphas and some alpha stamps I picked up years ago in a £shop, and I added some card candi to keep the embellies minimal.
I hope Charlie liked it.
If you would like to join the Jellypark Post Pals Group on Facebook just click here and ask to join. 
If you don't know what Post Pals is, click here, its a wonderful way of sending sick children & their families a little smile and happy hello.
I am going to start on my 4th card tomorrow after I have spoilt my hubby with a Fathers Day BBQ.

So Lovely

Hi people
I am blogging today about a wonderful place I found on Facebook where you can make sick children smile and hopefully brighten their days a little.
Claire Keay, the amazing lady at
is doing an amazing thing and giving us special digi stamps to make cards with and send to children via 
The idea is you promise to make a card or something suitable for the child you chose to send to, send your make to the c/o address and then you can get the next stamp sent to you to do the same again. Its such a special and brilliant thing to do and Claire draws the cutest digi's .
If you are interested in joining the group you can find it here

This is my make with the 1st stamp which I sent to a young lady called Sapphire

Isn't the digi just the cutest thing, and can be used for either boys or girls. 
I coloured her with pro markers and added glossy accents to the patch on her hat and monkeys eyes. I added a button threaded with bright pink twine, to her hat and used Wink Of Stella glitter pen on her jumper. The paper are from my stash but i seem to think they were in a pack free on a recent magazine, the sentiment I printed out and then drew the lines with my thinnest pro marker black pen. 3 little buttons finished off my card.

I hope you will be inspired to join the group and help put a smile on a child's face.
