Winter Fun 4 Kids and TEAM S.A.S. Introduction!

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is: Winter Fun 4 Kids! Create and link any winter card appropriate for a child and you could win one of our great prizes. You have until January 6th to enter this challenge because it is a SAS4Kids tradition to give our design team members the month off to relax and enjoy the holidays with their families.

We have two very generous sponsors for this challenge: Dollar Graphics Depot is giving their winner a $15 gift certificate! And the winner from Dies R Us also receives a a $15 gift certificate! 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.

I am very excited and happy today to welcome a new member to our design team! Sybrina King is joining us today as the newest member of TEAM S.A.S. Her name may be familiar to many of you because she is a SAS4Kids volunteer who has been collecting and sending cards to the kids who are inpatient in Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Here is what Sybrina shared about herself for her introduction:

For me, card making is all about sending cheer, hope, and encouragement one card at a time. My adventures in card making, which include my SAS4Kids activities for Nationwide Children’s, can be found at Chapter Three: Taking Life One Page at a Time. In addition to my volunteer work for SAS4Kids, I'm a co-founder of the monthly words-inspired challenge blog Words 2 Craft By and a member of the Cards in Envy and Sparkles Christmas Design Teams.   

Here is the sweet card Sybrina created for our Winter Fun 4 Kids challenge using a digital image from Dollar Graphics Depot:
