Sheltering Tree Cards

These are some of the cards I made at last month’s weekend craft retreat.  My friend Ronda added Stampin’ Up’s Sheltering Tree set to our stash, and it is great for making cards for Send a Smile 4 Kids. This organization collects and distributes handmade cards for children who are inpatient at Children’s Hospitals around the country and in Canada.

The stamp images are gender neutral, which makes the cards that much more versatile, and I enjoy the painterly effect of the leaves, grass, and clouds.  Also, even though I did not watercolor paint these, I’m counting them as half a point for today’s World Watercolor Group prompt of bicycle.  😛
