Punches and.or Diecuts 4 Kids and A New DT Announcement!

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is Punches and/or Diecuts 4 Kids. Create and link any card for a child featuring punches and/or diecuts and you could win one of our great prizes.

We have three very generous sponsors this week: Delicious Doodles is giving their winner 4 digis of their choice! And Sassy Studios is giving their randomly picked winner 4 digis of their choice! QKR Stampede’s winner will receive 5 digis of their choice!  TEAM S.A.S will also be choosing their favorite cards for our top three and the winners will receive a blog badge and an opportunity to be a guest design team member on a future challenge.

Today is doubly exciting for us here at Send a Smile 4 Kids because we get to introduce a new member of TEAM S.A.S. to you. Angie Boutiller has been a frequent player in our challenges and has been chosen for the Top Three. She has a wonderful blog here and is a great supporter of our cause. We asked Angie to share some words to introduce herself to you and this is what she shared:

My name is Angela Boutiller.  I was born, raised, and still reside in Altoona, Pennsylvania. I married my husband, George. We have been together for 18 years. We have 5 children (4 boys and 1 girl). (Trent, 15; Haden, 13; Riley, 10; George,9,  Alex, 7. )  Seriously, I am a self professed book nerd! I tend to overuse the ellipses I don't know what God was thinking when he blessed me with rough and tough boys that play just about every sport. My life is a work in progress and always chaotic! I have just completed my 12th year of teaching 7th grade. I am a Special Education Teacher. At the start of the new school year, I'll be teaching 12th grade! This is going to be a big change for me but I am excited. I started making cards a year ago this month. I needed a hobby!  I can spend hours coloring an image with my beloved Copic markers. I really like making cards and sending them to where I know it will put a smile on someone's face. I donate to Operation Write Home, SAS4K, Cards for Hospitalized Kids, and I am an approved angel through the Soldiers' Angels organization. I am a member of the Letter Writing Team. I make cards, write a letter inside, and send it off to a deployed military service member. I am so looking forward to being a part of your team. 

We are thrilled to have Angie as a part of our team and here are the cards she created for this challenge with our sponsor’s images:

We are also happy to have a guest designer from QKR Stampede sharing a card with us today! Thank you Mian for this fun holiday card featuring QKR digis and punches and diecuts:
