Friday Mashup #9-Cards for Kids

Happy Friday everyone! Life has been busier than usual, with work and family!  Summer is fast approaching and I have been enjoying the nice weather, although the past two days have been rain-filled, this weekend promises to be sunny and warm!  I will spend the weekend, working on cards...REPORT cards!  LOL!  I have a few to write but I hope to squeeze in some stamping too!

Today is Friday Mashup Day and it is my turn to host!  I chose a fun photo that I found online and loved the primary colours!  Those colours made me think of cards for kids and so my Mashup Idea was born!!! 

This week for the Mashup Challenge, you are welcome to: 
       1. Create a Kid Themed project. 
       2. Create a project using just the Color Combo.
       3. Or "Mash it Up!" and create a Kid project that uses the Color Combo!

I decided to create a Kid Themed project with my new sets called "Summer Splash"! This fun little set has a lot of great images, perfect for cards for kids! I love the sweet little Octopus!

This is a fairly simple card, made with Concord Crush DSP and Cardstock.  I went Monotone with my project this week but this fabulous set is perfect for bright and cheerful colours!!!

Come on by the Mashup this week and join us! 
Thanks for stopping by!
