(For our current challenge, please go here.)
Welcome to our Blog Grand Re-opening and Blog Candy Giveaway!! And we are announcing the winners of our Teddy Bear and Other Animals (for Kids) Challenge too (see below.) We are so proud of our blog's new look (thanks again to Sara & Michael) and the fact we now have 100 followers that we are celebrating with a Blog Candy Giveaway! Would you like to win all the goodies above? Punches, stamps, ribbon, tools, flowers, adhesive and rub-ons - who wouldn't?
The rules are simple - You have from July 9th until Friday July 29th at 7:00 a.m. CST to follow these instructions and then leave a comment below with your email address and a link to your blog and what you did to qualify. (You can still enter if you don't have a blog- see below!)
We are asking that you:
1.) Become a Follower if you are not already one. (Edited to add: Blogger seems to be having an issue with becoming a follower... On some sites the followers just disappear every so often.. So try to become a follower on this or on another visit to our blog (and sometimes trying another browser works), but you won't be disqualified from winning if you can't get it to work. Same goes for our challenges...)
2.) Post our new SAS4Kids Blog Badge to your blog; and if you choose to also post a picture of the blog candy with a link back here, you will be entered TWICE in the drawing. If you don't have a blog, you can still enter! Just post about SAS4Kids and what we do to Facebook or send an email to your stamping friends telling about SAS4Kids and encouraging them to send in cards for our kids. Just let us know what you have done in your comment below.
3.) Last, but not least, make a commitment to send some cards to SAS4Kids for the children who are inpatient in Children's Hospitals. Send us one or ten or twenty or whatever you can. We will award the blog candy without having received your cards, but please do follow through with this when you can. All the details you need can be found under the Tab above "Guidelines for Donated Cards".
Now, onto our winners of the Teddy Bear and Other Animals (for kids) Challenge. The winner of the $10 gift certificate to Digi Doodles Shop is #3 Bunny! Bunny's winning card can be seen here. Bunny- please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can put you in contact with Digi Doodles to get your prize! You can get your winner's blog badge on the side of the blog (in code so very easy to put on your blog.)
We had sooo many awesome entrants in this challenge, it was very difficult to pick our top three! But we have chosen: #12, Jacki R., #24 Sharon S., and #26 Melissa Sackman. Click on their names to see their great cards and their blogs! Congratulations Ladies! Your cards will be added to our Slide Show for all to see and you can add our Top Three blog badge (on the side down a bit) to your blogs with pride!
On a sad note, we are saying good-bye at the end of the current challenge to Carol who has decided to leave SAS4Kids design team. Carol has been with SAS4Kids since the beginning and has been a huge supporter of our cause. We will miss her!
There is a still a week to participate in our current challenge, Red White and Blue (for kids) for a chance to win one of two great prizes! And, as always, remember our kids inpatient in Children's Hospitals and send in your cards if you can.
Stamping smiles 4 our kids, Karen
