Bugaboo Card Drive AND Winners Announced!

(For our current challenge, please go here.)

Wow- it is a extra special Saturday here at Send a Smile 4 Kids because we are joining Bugaboo today for the start of their week long Christmas in July celebration AND we are announcing the winners from our Birthday Fun for Kids Challenge! So much fun to share with you!

Bugaboo's Christmas in July Celebration at their challenge blog starts today and their theme today is "Christmas is for Kids". They are encouraging their participants to send in their holiday cards for kids to Send a Smile 4 Kids and we really appreciate their support! So you can enter your card here in our Christmas in July challenge and at the Catch the Bug Challenge blog for twice the chance to win a great prize! Each day they are having a different challenge so check out their blog for all the info! 

Two members of Bugaboo's design team have shared some sweet holiday cards for kids with us today, and we have two more holiday cards from TEAM S.A.S. to inspire you as well. Just click on any of the names to go to their blogs for more awesome cards and inspiration.

Aren't all these cards and the Bugaboo images on them just so sweet? Any child would love to receive one of them, especially if they were spending the holidays in a Children's Hospital! So please join us and Bugaboo in making and sharing a holiday card for a child, and send it in if you can. (It is not required to enter either of these challenges to send in your card(s) for one of our kids, we would sure love it if you did- and so would our kids:)


We had three generous sponsors of the Birthday Fun for Kids challenge, and their random winners are as follows: #19, Kathie is the lucky winner of Stamp Shoppe Creations $15 gift certificate! #38 Olivia is the lucky winner of two digital stamps of her choice from Tickled Pink! And #13 Nancy D. is the winner of a $9 gift certificate from Shelley's Images! Congratulations Ladies! Please send me an email at khasheck at gmail dot com so I can put you in touch with the sponsor to redeem your prize, and take your winners blog badge from the side of the blog!

As always, we had so many talented stampers enter our challenge and picking the Top Three can be a difficult task! But we did it and here is this week's Top Three in no particular order:
