Challenge cocktail

For this challenge I've combined the Mojo Monday sketch (which I've managed by the skin of my teeth!) and the last two Daring Cardmakers Dares. Last week was to
'Make a child smile'
All I want you to do is make a card with sick children in mind.
It's best to avoid ‘Get Well’ cards and just aim to make something that is cheery and will bring a smile to a sick child’s face.
Now I can hear you saying….so, what make this such a ‘special’ dare?
Well, it’s special because this week we are very proud to be linking up with Post Pals, an organisation that was set up to create smiles for children who suffer from life threatening and long term illnesses.
As part of the dare, and the most important part at that, I would like you to actually post your card to one of the children listed on the Post Pals web site.
It’s very simple to do, just visit their Home Page where you’ll see they have some ‘featured’ children at the top of the page and to the Left in the side bar there’s a whole data base of children and their stories.

So there you have it……
I dare you to make a cheery card for a sick child and send it to one of the children featured on Post Pals to brighten their day.

Also, please can I ask you to make sure that any embellishments you use on your card are firmly secured? We need to prevent the chance of any accidents where small items might be swallowed if they come loose.

and this weeks Dare is the colour combo......blue and green should never be seen. My nana always added....unless with yellow in between!The image is one of Sally-Ann Hancock's downloads at The Digi Stamp Boutique and I've coloured him with ProMarkers.
