Anything Goes 4 Kids Challenge

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. 

We have three very generous sponsors for this challenge: Dollar Graphics Depot is giving their winner a $15 gift certificate! Oak Pond Creations is giving their randomly picked winner 3 digis of their choice!  And Fred She Said’s winner gets a $10 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.


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


On a sad note, today is the last challenge for TEAM S.A.S. member Hilde Marsh. Hilde has been with SAS4Kids since the beginning, but she is stepping away for a while at least. We are hoping she will be able to join us again in the future. Here are Hilde’s sweet cards for this challenge:

CAS (Clean and Simple) 4 Kids Challenge

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is CAS (Clean and Simple) 4 Kids! Create and link any CAS card for a child and you could win one of our great prizes.

CAS (clean and simple) can be interpreted any way you wish. We wanted to point out the cards for kids we like to receive do not have to have a ton of layers or embellishments to be enjoyed by our kids. But it does not mean, slap a couple stickers on some paper and call it a card. Check out the TEAM S.A.S. cards below for some lovely CAS examples.

We have three very generous sponsors for this challenge: DRS Designs is giving their winner a $10 gift certificate! A Day for Daisies is giving their randomly picked winner a $12 gift certificate! And Kitchen Sink Stamp’s winner gets a $25 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.

We are so happy to have Karin Martin of the DRS Designs dt as a guest dt member here for this challenge. This is the sweet CAS card Karin shared with us: 

Now for some more 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.
