Anything Goes 4 Kids Challenge

Happy New Year from SAS4Kids!! It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is Anything Goes 4 Kids! Create and link any card for a child and you could win one of our great prizes. But it does have to be a card as that is what we are all about.

We have three very generous sponsors for this challenge: Digi Stamps 4 Joy is giving their winner a $10 gift certificate!  Whimsy Stamps is giving their randomly picked winner a $15 gift certificate!  And The Cutting CafĂ©’s winner gets 3 sets of digi or cutting files! TEAM S.A.S will also be choosing their favorite cards for our top three and the winners will receive a blog badge and an opportunity to be a guest design team member on a future challenge.

Today is our Ina’s last day as a member of TEAM S.A.S. We wish her nothing but the best in the New Year and beyond. Here are Ina’s cards for this challenge:

**We have decided to continue a new tradition here at Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge. We all love comments and followers on our blogs, right? So we are suggesting- but not requiring- that all participants in our challenges pick 2-3 (or more) other participants in the challenge, click on their card, visit their blog, leave a positive comment about the card and become a follower of that blog. In your comment, leave a link to your card and blog and hopefully the blogger you visited will come to your blog and become a follower too. **
