Teddy Bears and Other Animals (For Kids) Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge here at Send A Smile 4 Kids! We are challenging you to make a fun card for a child using Teddy Bears or Other Animals. Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is
Digi Doodles Shop and their awesome prize is a $10 gift certificate to their online store! Everyone who enters has an equal chance at this prize as it is a random drawing, and we also choose our top three cards and they receive a blog badge of honor.


Our Special Guest Designer is none other than the fabulous Jacque Joie Vivre, who was gracious enough to join us at SAS4Kids for this challenge. Her fantastic card is above. Jacque is on the Design Teams for Wild Orchid, LOTV, Just Magnolia and is a Copic Certified Designer. She has a heart as big as gold and a spirit full of kindness; that must explain why she has 3645 followers. WOW! As you can see, she creates beautiful cards and shares them with her followers, literally. She truly is an inspiration.
Jacque is, in her own words:  "I am a retired college professor who readily admits to a stamping addiction and I am NOT in search of a 12-step plan to overcome it. The cute munchkins in the stamping world have found their way into my heart and I get much joy from showcasing them with paper and coloring. I kinda enjoy these paperdolls for grown-ups!!"
Jacque is offering some BLOG CANDY TODAY on her blog to promote SAS4Kids, so please visit her blog at for all the details and to be inspired by her awesome cards. Leave her some love and thanks for helping us out today and who knows, you might be the winner!

Here are our design team Teddy Bears and Other Animals cards to inspire you. For details on their card and to see their blogs, just click on the names.  (Most of the teddy bears are digital stamps from our sponsor, Digi Doodles Shop.)
