Kids' Cards | Melonheadz Illustrating

I'm still working on my goal to make 20 kids' cards for Operation Write Home to honor the 20 angels who died in the Sandy Hook School Shooting.  I'm determined to meet my goal no matter how long it takes me, plus every card I create helps me to remember the innocent children who died that day.

So, here are cards #9 and #10.  I made these using nursery rhyme images created by Nikki of Melonheadz Illustrating.  For those of you who do not enjoy coloring images, you might be interested to know that I used pre-colored images.  Nikki has a wide selection of images, both pre-colored and outlines.  You will be seeing more of Nikki's nursery rhyme images in future kids' cards.

I also thought it would be fun to include the nursery rhyme on the inside of the card.  In my search for the words to the nursery rhymes (to make sure I got them correct), I found a very interesting website that explains the origins and references of many nursery rhymes.  Most are based on English history and monarchs.  Curious?  Go check it out yourself HERE.  I learned some very interesting stuff!

Don't forget about WOW Wednesday at Cat's Creations Scrapbooks blog.  You can play along with any paper creation your heart desires AND/OR leave comments on other participants' blogs for a chance to win a prize!
