Character cards ....

.... for children.  Several of the magazines I get have had great card making kits featuring the Mr Men and Tracey Beaker - both very popular characters.  And that's what I've decided to feature in this scheduled post.

I'll start with the Mr Men cards.  These were so easy to make.  I used some cards from my stash and added backing papers from the kit.  On the long thin card I added a couple of chipboard stickers for dimension.  It's quite sweet.  For the square card, I used the free paper and found a large image of Mr Tickle that I cut out and place on the card - he's such a fun character that I thought it would make a really good birthday card.  Both these cards went into the summer fete at school.

Now Kathryn loves all the Jacqueline Wilson books, and is particularly fond of the story of Tracey Beaker.  She was totally hooked on the TV series.  So, at Kathryn's special request I made a series of cards featuring Tracey Beaker.


Sometimes I find it quite hard to put the cards exactly where I want them!!!  I'm sure there's an easy way to do it, but I'm still working out some of the kinks.  So these are just four of the series of cards that I made for Kathryn.  She liked the sleepover card the best and was keen to put it to good use !!  All the cards were made for the summer fete where the Scouts had a stall.  All the money that I made selling the cards - and I did sell some - went to our fund raising kitty. 

And that's all for today.  I'll be back soon.

hearty synpathize about the blog positioning - have got that T-shirt with a vengeance, the number of postings I've lost trying to position the photos. I remember when those Mr Men first came out (back in the days of dinosaurs). Have missed you on MCC but hope everything going well.
