Easter or Spring Cards 4 Kids Challenge

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is Easter or Spring Cards 4 Kids! Create and link any spring card appropriate for a child, and you could win one of our great prizes.

As always, we start early encouraging you to make holiday cards so you can choose to send them in to one of our volunteers to help cheer a child who is inpatient on Easter or any day this Spring season. You are not required to send in your cards to participate or win our challenges, but our kids sure would love it if you did.

We have two very generous sponsors for this challenge: A Day for Daisies is giving their winner a $12 gift certificate! And Dies R Us’s winner gets a $15 gift certificate! 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.

Now for some great inspiration, here are the cards created by TEAM S.A.S. for this challenge using our generous sponsors’ images. To visit any of their blogs or to go to our sponsor’s websites, just click on any of the names or the pictures at the side of our blog.
