SAS4Kids: Thank You Cards

Hi everyone! Thank you for joining us for a new challenge here at SAS4Kids. 

But first, please know our thoughts go out to all affected by recent unimaginable weather events. It seems that so many have been suffering from raging fires, unprecedented flooding, and life-threatening heat. Moreover, our sincerest appreciation goes out to those courageous responders who risk their lives day in and day out to protect and serve their neighbors.


For today's challenge, we are thrilled to welcome back Melanie as a Guest Designer. Melanie shares her adventures in crafting at Cards by Melanie and her bright, cheery, whimsical kiddie cards never fail to delight. Today's card feaatures an adorable pair of mice gleefully offering up thanks for a job well done. 

Yes, this month we are featuring thank you cards, but not cards 4 the kids. These are cards that the kids and their families can give to nurses, doctors, hospital staffers.... give to anybody who has done a little something special for them. 

So, let's take a look at what Melanie and our SAS4Kids DT have created this month!





While we are focusing on thank you cards this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for this month's challenge and you have until Friday, September 2 to link up your creation. While you aren't required to donate your linked-up card to SAS4Kids, one of our hospitalized patients 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 August Gallery!

SAS4Kids: June "Jems"

Hi, everyone! Thanks to everyone who linked up a card for our June challenge. It's always such a pleasure to see your fun kid cards in our gallery, and last month you all created some amazing teen/tween cards.

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

#5 Arlene R

The bold, bright colors on this card were created using alcohol inks.
Talk about a wow factor. A huge wow factor!

#14 Deanne

The gals loved the clean, crisp look of this sophisticated card.
And don't you just love these images for a teen/tween card?!

#15 Maxine D

Our team was blown away by this intricate dragon stamp.
This dragon is another example of a great image for a teen/tween card!

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

SAS4Kids: Christmas in July

Happy Saturday, everyone! Hope you are in the midst of a wonderful holiday weekend with family, friends, and loved ones.  

If the summer heat is starting to get to you, we have a perfect cardmaking theme this month. It's time to pop in your favorite Christmas DVD and ink up a few Santas and reindeer. Yes! This month we are focusing on Christmas Cards 4 Kids. These are cards that loved ones and hospital staff members can give to the hospitalized children/teens/tweens. 

So, without any further ado, let's check out this month's holiday creations. 













While we are focusing on Christmas cards this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for this month's challenge and you have until Friday August 5 to link up your creation. While you aren't required to donate your linked-up card to SAS4Kids, one of our hospitalized patients would love it if you did.
