Easter or Spring Cards 4 Kids

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 or Easter card appropriate for a child and you could win one of our great prizes.

We choose our themes and time them early to remind everyone that if you are sending in cards to our SAS4Kids volunteers, now is the time to start making and sending in Easter and Spring cards. You do not have to donate your cards to participate in our challenges, but our kids sure hope you do!

We have two very generous sponsors for this challenge: Bugaboo is giving their winner 4 digis of their choice! And the winner from Tonic Studios receives a collection of eight Nuvo Crystal Drops! 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.

We are happy to have a previous top three winner join us today as a guest dt member. Lori Turner shared this fun card with us using our sponsor’s images:

For the Girls Challenge

Our volunteers often mention a need for cards for pre-teen and teenage girls (and boys), so these challenge themes can serve as a reminder of the types of cards we need for the children’s hospitals we serve.

We have two very generous sponsors for this challenge: Paper Nest Dolls is giving their winner 3 digis of their choice! And the winner from Die-Versions receives 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 images from our sponsors. 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.
