SAS4Kids: October Shout-Outs!

Hi, everyone! There is nothing like the holidays to get our crafting juices flowing, is there?! It was really great to see so many fun cards for kids in our Holiday/Celebration Cards 4 Kids Gallery. Thanks to all who played along. 

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


We love receiving cute Halloween cards for the kids and boy, oh boy...
Deanna's Frankie couldn't be any cuter. Well done, Deanna! 


Donna's design draws your eyes right to that candy corn and sentiment.
The orange in those papers tie all the elements together. What a great card!


Who knew Santa and Rudolph had time for selfies? 
How clever! And Trina's coloring is just amazing. Wow!


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

SAS4Kids: Happy Holidays 4 Kids

Hello, everybody! Today is the first Saturday in November... which means it's time for a new challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids. 

Yes, it's already that time of the year when our shippers shift their attention away from pumpkins and scarecrows to snowmen and Santas. I am really excited that we have such a wonderful variety of cards to share today. Not only do we have cards from all our designers, but we also have a fun card from a Guest Designer!

Arlene Rose shares her adventures in cardmaking at Sundaystamper Papercrafts, where you'll find great inspiration for all kinds of cards. In addition to sharing her fabulous kiddie and CAS cards, Arlene also shares lots of great ideas for guy cards. Thank you soooo much, Arlene, for joining us a Guest Designer this month... as well as for your loyal support of SAS4Kids! 




While we are focusing on holiday cards 4 our kids this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for this month's challenge and you have until Friday, December 2 to share your creation. While you aren't required to donate your linked-up card to SAS4Kids, one of our hospitalized patients surely would love it if you did. Card submission information can be found by clicking on the tabs at the top of this page.

As always, thanks so much for your support of SAS4Kids. Hope to see you in our Holiday Cards Gallery!

SAS4Kids: September Sweeties!

Hi, everyone! A big thanks to everyone who linked up a card for our Cute Fall/Halloween Challenge. There were so many adorable cards. Soooo many! 

It's time for a few SAS4Kids shout-outs. Here are three cards that caught our DT's eyes. (And, may I offer a gentle reminder that only cards are eligible for Top Three Honors? While we love seeing all your creativity in our galleries, the SAS4Kids' monthly challenge is a card-specific challenge because of our mission to get cards in the hands of in-patient kids.)


Wow! We love pop-up cards around here...
and Nancy's haunted house is amazing!


We also love paper-pieced critters in these parts.
And Rachael's gel pen touches are just... perfect. Soooo cute!


Our gals were quite impressed by Donna's colors. 
And, those dancing skeletons are such great fun!


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