Since I will be gone almost the entire month of April, I thought I'd get my cards made for April's challenge now. I didn't have a stamp with a toy on it, so I chose to make a present-like pull-out card since toys are usually wrapped as presents. Hope you enjoy.

I've completely lost track of the challenges, sorry Angela ! I'm finding my new lower monthly limits so much easier, I'm making more cards, even though I need less !

My cards for April are as follows:
Swirly Starry Night
CAS Church Ornament 1
CAS Church Ornament 2

A tough challenge, Angela, as I don't have many toy stamps but I did recently buy this lovely Christmas rocking horse so did two cards with it:

Pink and Lime Christmas!

Another card for April...I don't have any toys stamps, but since Santa is the bringer of toys, I made a HOHOHO card instead. Used up lots of eyelets, etc. I forgot how fun they were to use.

This month I have opted for making some small cards 6cm x 7cm. I haven't stuck strictly to the challenge but toys at christmas time are placed under the tree or in stockings aren't they?!!!!!! so I have sort of done the challenge.

I did make a card for the Theme - Toys. But these are the only stamps I have that even come close to fitting the theme so my other cards will probably just be Christmas. I like this card but I don't want to make 4 more of them.

I didn't think I'd be able to do a card with a toy soldier, Angela - but I found an old Christmas card to recycle and got not only a toy soldier, but some other toys, onto this card:

Pink Christmas with a Toy Soldier

I just posted two and sorry, Angela, I didn't do a soldier. I'm just trying to not fall too far behind.

Sending Wishes
Very Merry

I still haven't managed to find a toy stamp, but again, Santa brings the toys doesn't he. So here's another version of a Santa card. Had fun using lots of punches. Found the time to put together about 20 of these on a road trip recently
Here's my card.

I don't have any toy soldiers, but went with the "toys go in stockings, don't they?" thought!

Wow! I found I had a stamp that actually has a toy soldier on it. But get out your magnifying glass. That is actually what I had to do to color these in. See if you can spot the tiny toy soldier in my card.
