Fall Colors Anything Goes for Kids Challenge

It's time for another fun challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids and this time we are challenging you to create a card for a child using fall colors- whatever you interpret fall colors to be is fine as long as it is a card appropriate for a child. It can be a Halloween card if you wish, but please nothing scary and avoid images such as tombstones. Even if you do not send your card to SAS4Kids (and we sure hope you do:), the cards entered in our challenge have to be appropriate for our kids.

We have two generous sponsors for this challenge and look what you can win in our random sponsor drawings: Prairie Fairy is offering a $15 gift certificate and Bee Crafty is offering the winner 3 digital stamps of their choice! You could also be picked as one of our Top Three and win a blog badge and a guest design team spot!

You are going to be amazed at all the talent and inspiration we have for you today! We have two guest design team members today and they both had so much fun with our sponsor's images, they created two cards each! First up is Shelley Dureau. Shelley is the driving force behind Feline Playful, the best challenge list blog in blogland, AND our Canadian partner at Send a Smile 4 Kids (Canada). We just announced our expansion to Canada and our partnership in this blogpost Tuesday. We are so excited to welcome Shelley and all of Canada and to be able to help more children who are inpatient in Children's Hospitals. You can visit Shelley's blog here, and here are the cards Shelley shared with us using our sponsors great images:

Our second guest dt member is Melanie Harding. Mel was picked as a Top Three entrant a few challenges back and agreed to come on as guest dt for this challenge. You can visit her blog here and here are her awesome cards:

TEAM S.A.S had fun, too, with our sponsors images and here are their cards for your inspiration. As always, you can click on their names to go to their blogs for all the details on the cards and to leave some well deserved compliments on their creativity.
