Postal Pals

I recently signed up on Facebook to Jellypark Post pals Club:

"We want you to have fun crafting with our images and then put your creations to a special use! We KNOW you love to make cards and we KNOW the children at Post Pals love getting cards from all around the world. Start sending cards to children on Post Pals' list and for being so lovely you will start earning extra free exclusive stamps from us.
To start, just post a message on our wall to say you would like to take part. We will then send you your first free stamp to craft with via private message here on Facebook."

You ask what is Postal Pals...  if you go to  their webpage:  (
You can find out more info,  this is an extract from their main page:
"Post Pals, is a charity helping you to ‘Post a Smile on a Sick Child’s Face’ by the sending of cards, letters, emails and little gifts to seriously ill children and their siblings. It couldn't be easier for anyone of any age to get involved, requires no commitment and costs only a stamp and 5 minutes of your time."

The first Digi image i  received was the one below.
Before i could start I  went to the website and decide who i was going to send my first card to,
I decide to send mine to Anna-Mae C

As Anna-Mae C  favorite colour is Red,
 I choose  various shades of Red and Pink to colour the image
Berry Red, Poppy, Lipstick Red,
Carmine, Cerise and Baby Pink.

Once i had coloured the image I looked for papers withe red in them.
I matted the coloured image onto a piece of red card, and also looked for a red card to use as a base.
I then matted the red spotty paper on to the front of the card.
Then added a piece of word paper and the bottom of the card.
To fill the gap at the side i dug out some embellishments.
It still seems a bit bare by the image, so i decided to cut a sentiment out of  red card,
I choose "make a wish"  die from my tonic dies.

Now I just need to write a note to put inside and then i can mail it to her.

I hope you like this card
Why not join us and send cards to these poorly children.
