Winners Announced and Welcome to a New TEAM SAS Member!

(For our current challenge, please go here.) 

It's another fun Saturday at Send a Smile 4 Kids because we get to make 5 lucky and talented participants in our For the Girls challenge very happy! But first we are thrilled to be introducing our newest member of TEAM S.A.S! Krafty Karen has been a participant in many of our challenges and her beautiful cards have been chosen as part of our top three. She has also sent in her lovely cards for our kids inpatient in children’s hospitals. Here is what Karen shared to introduce herself to all of us:

Hello Everyone,

I'm Karen from England and I am 40 years old (newly!! Lol..) I began card making a little over 6 years ago - and I live, breath, and sleep colouring!  Smiles.  I like all kinds of medium but my all out (most used) favourite is most definitely my Copics!! I am a stay at home Mum of five but only four are still living at home with me now.  I have a very understanding husband so I am very, very lucky as far as my addiction (ooops! Sorry!)  HOBBY goes.. Hehehe. I feel so very excited to be joining the team at SAS4Kids - I have been in awe of all that they do for so very long now.  And it's just so fantastic that I'm going to be a part of it.  Smiles.

Hugs & HaPPy Crafting!
