SAS4Kids: November Nuggets

Hi, everyone! It's time for a few SAS4Kids shout-outs! 

A big thanks to everyone who played along with last month's Happy Holiday Cards 4 Kids Challenge. Here are three cards that caught our DT's eyes. 

Nothing says "Happy Holidays" to a little one like Santa,
 and nothing said fun to us like this special-fold card!

Our team loved the focal point created with the layering of 
those cheery holiday papers for that sparkly sentiment. So festive! 

We just fell in love with this festive light-bearing fairy. 
And that snowy effect created with acrylic paint and Wink of Stella.... WOW!

Congratulations, ladies! Thanks for sharing your amazing talents with us.

Our current Winter Cards 4 Kids Challenge runs until December 31. However, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for the challenge.

It is not required that you donate your card after entering, but a young patient in one of the SAS4Kids hospitals would surely love it if you did. For information about donating cards, click on the tabs at the top of our blog. Please check our shippers' needs before sending cards their way. 

As always, thank you for all you do for SAS4Kids. All of us at SAS4Kids wish you the happiest of holidays.

SAS4Kids: Winter Cards 4 Kids

Hello and Happy December, everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. 

If you're like me, your crafting space is a whirlwind of activity right about now. And, our SAS4Kids shippers are certainly busy putting finishing touches on the holiday card boxes going out to our hospitals. So, here at SAS4Kids, we are turning our attention from Santa and his elves to focus on winter-themed cards for our kids. You will see our designers' cards feature snowmen.... and snowflakes... and winter-themed sentiments... and beautiful winter palettes! Let's take a look at these delightful wintry creations.

You have until December 31 -- yep, New Year's Eve -- to play along with this month's challenge. While we are featuring winter cards this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up. And, even though you don't have to send your card in to SAS4Kids to join in the fun, an in-patient child/teen would love it if you did. 

Lastly, I know we say this every month, but we are so appreciative for your support of Send a Smile 4 Kids. I remember being overwhelmed with gratitude when I packed up holiday cards to send to the kids at Nationwide Children's. Each card we send out is a work of heart and we thank each and every one of you form the bottom of our hearts. 

Happy Holidays! See you all in the new year!
