Christmas in July 4 Kids Challenge

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is Christmas in July 4 Kids! Create and link any Christmas or Happy Holidays card for a child and you could win one of our great prizes.

We start early here at SAS4Kids for holiday cards because we would love for every one of the kids in the 8 children’s hospitals we currently serve to receive a card on all the major holidays and to be able to pick some out to send to relatives or friends they are missing while in the hospital. So after making your holiday cards of any kind during any time of the year, please consider sending them to one of the addresses under the tabs on the top. If we get them early (or late) we will save them for the next box going to the hospitals close to the holiday.

We have three very generous sponsors for this challenge:  Doodle Pantry is giving their winner a $10 gift certificate! Sassy Studios is giving their randomly picked winner 4 images of their choice!  And Whoopsi Daisy’s winner gets 2 sheets of stamps 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.

Now for some great inspiration, here are the cards created by TEAM S.A.S. for this challenge using our generous sponsors’ images. To visit any of their blogs or to go to our sponsor’s websites, just click on any of the names or the pictures at the side of our blog.

Today we are saying good-bye to TEAM S.A.S. member, Joyce. We are sad to see Joyce go and have enjoyed her cards and having her as part of our team. Here are Joyce’s cards for this challenge:

Deonna's Cards

Karen's Cards 

Hilde's Cards

Ina's Cards 

Lucianna's Cards 

Awesome cards for kids as always from our wonderful design team!  You have until Friday August 1st at noon CST to enter this challenge. After you do, please consider sending in your card(s) to cheer a child who is inpatient in one of our eight children’s hospitals. All the information you need is under the tabs at the top of the blog.

**We have decided to start a new tradition here at Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge. We all love comments and followers on our blogs, right? So we are suggesting- but not requiring- that all participants in our challenges pick 2-3 (or more) other participants in the challenge, click on their card, visit their blog, leave a positive comment about the card and become a follower of that blog. In your comment, leave a link to your card and blog and hopefully the blogger you visited will come to your blog and become a follower too. **

Stamping smiles 4 our kids, Karen
