SAS4Kids: Winter Cards 4 Kids

Hello and Happy December, everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. 

If you're like me, your crafting space is a whirlwind of activity right about now. And, our SAS4Kids shippers are certainly busy putting finishing touches on the holiday card boxes going out to our hospitals. So, here at SAS4Kids, we are turning our attention from Santa and his elves to focus on winter-themed cards for our kids. You will see our designers' cards feature snowmen.... and snowflakes... and winter-themed sentiments... and beautiful winter palettes! Let's take a look at these delightful wintry creations.

You have until December 31 -- yep, New Year's Eve -- to play along with this month's challenge. While we are featuring winter cards this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up. And, even though you don't have to send your card in to SAS4Kids to join in the fun, an in-patient child/teen would love it if you did. 

Lastly, I know we say this every month, but we are so appreciative for your support of Send a Smile 4 Kids. I remember being overwhelmed with gratitude when I packed up holiday cards to send to the kids at Nationwide Children's. Each card we send out is a work of heart and we thank each and every one of you form the bottom of our hearts. 

Happy Holidays! See you all in the new year!

SAS4Kids: Celebration Time!

Hi, everyone! 

A big thanks to everyone who played along with last month's October Holiday/Celebration Card Challenge. It was fun seeing a few general celebratory cards intermixed with a variety of holiday cards. Thanks to everyone who played along!

It's time for a few SAS4Kids shout-outs. Here are three cards that caught our DT's eyes. 

Isn't this just about the cutest group of trick-or-treaters you've ever seen?!
And, we just loved Rachael's beautifully inked sky. So pretty!

Debbie's sports-themed birthday would be perfect for a special MVP!
Our shippers always appreciate receiving boy cards to include in their boxes.

Who knew a spider could be so cute?!
Not only did Melanie wow us with her crisp CAS design,
but also with her palette choices and wonderful coloring.

Congratulations, ladies! Thanks for sharing your amazing talents with us.

Our current Happy Holiday Cards 4 Kids Challenge runs until December 3. However, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for the challenge.

As always, thank you for all you do for SAS4Kids. See you in our November gallery!

Hello, crafty friends! We're so glad you stopped by for our November challenge. 

Right now, my crafting table is full of Santas, which is pretty appropriate since this month's theme is Happy Holidays. Yep, we are featuring holiday cards because the most wonderful time of the year really is right around the proverbial corner. 

This month we are pleased to welcome back Allisa Steinlicht as a Guest Designer. Chances are you've seen a few of Allisa's creations in our challenge galleries. Be sure to check our her adventures in cardmaking at Thanks so much, Allisa, for sharing your talents with us here this month!

So, let's see what cards Allisa and our uber-talented DT made for this challenge.


While we are featuring happy holiday cards 4 kids this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for this month's challenge and you have until Friday, December 3 to link up your creation. While you aren't required to donate your card to SAS4Kids in order to play along with us, one of our hospitalized patients would love it if you did. Card guidelines and shipper information can be found by clicking on the tabs at the top of this page.

You will need to fast forward a bit to get to the part of the video that gives specific information for linking up a card image.)
