you're a genius

Good Monday morning stampers! How was your weekend? Did you get lots done? I got a few fun cards made today as is evidenced in today's card.

My inspiration for this card is a little boy named Elijah. You can read more about Elijah HERE. His little sister died suddenly and Korin has asked if we could all send a card to him to brighten up his day. So...how do you say no to that? I used some fun Sandy Lion patterned paper (both the stripe and the dots) along with lots of bright SU! colors, and the Sweet N Sassy Stamps set called You're a Genius. I paper pieced the lab coat as part of the SNSS's WCMD technique challenge. Even though no incentive should be needed...if you'd like to make a card for Elijah (and/or Janessa...see the same post) you will be entered into a drawing to win $100 SNSS gift certificate. Now, please, go get busy and make these two very special children a card to brighten their day!

Tomorrow is Created by Courtney Challenge Day. I'm working on something that I think you guys will really like. It has been inspired by one of my favorite stampers Keri Lee Seirka. I will link you to my inspiration piece tomorrow too...see you then!

Have a great Monday everyone! Oh, you you should go check out THIS blog candy!
