Humorous or Slimy Cards 4 Kids OR Anything Goes 4 Kids

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This year, all challenges at SAS4Kids are Anything Goes 4 Kids! We will often have an alternative theme that you can choose to follow, but are not required to. Create and link any card that is appropriate for a child and your card could be chosen as one of our top three cards and you could join us as a guest dt member on a future challenge.

The theme for this challenge is: Humorous or Slimy Cards 4 Kids OR Anything Goes 4 Kids. Some of us on TEAM SAS are featuring slime on our cards and here is the funny story why: I was visiting a blog of a frequent player in our challenges and I noticed she had our blog badge on the side of her blog promoting our challenge and cause, and of course I was thrilled to see that. But in her title, she made a small error in the spelling of “Send a Smile” and it read: Send a SLIME 4 KidsJ  What a difference mixing up just two letters resulted in! It cracked me up and I shared with the blogger so she could correct it after we laughed about it. I also shared the laugh with my dt members and we decided to use the “slime” and humor in a challenge. Kids love humor and slime, so accept our challenge and see what you can come up with.

Now for some great inspiration, here are the cards created by TEAM S.A.S. for this challenge. To visit any of their blogs, just click on the link above their card.



Hilde’s Card

Karen’s Card

April’s Card

Janet’s Card

You have until Friday August 30th at noon CST to enter this challenge. After you do, please consider sending in your card(s) to cheer a child who is inpatient in one of our many children’s hospitals we serve. All the information you need is under the tabs at the top of the blog.
