SAS4Kids: July Jewels

Hi, everyone! A big thanks to everyone who linked up a card for our Christmas in July Challenge. There were so many cute holiday critters in last month's gallery. And, of course, no Christmas gallery would be complete without a few jolly Santas and decorated trees.

It's time for a few SAS4Kids shout-outs. Here are three cards that caught our DT's eyes.

2. Rosi

The team was wowed by Rosi's strong focal point and
her oh-so-clever use of washi tape. Soooo clever!

Trina's off-season, vacationing Santa brought a smile to all our faces...
and is sure to do the same for a kiddo. What a fun card!

Rachael's beautifully colored gnome just pops 
 against a glittery black-and-white background.
And that hand-drawn doodled border is... perfectly genius!

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

Our current Thank You Cards (from the kids and their families) Challenge runs until September 2. 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 your shippers' needs before sending cards their way. 

As always, thank you for all you do for SAS4Kids. We so appreciate it!

SAS4Kids: Thank You Cards

Hi everyone! Thank you for joining us for a new challenge here at SAS4Kids. 

But first, please know our thoughts go out to all affected by recent unimaginable weather events. It seems that so many have been suffering from raging fires, unprecedented flooding, and life-threatening heat. Moreover, our sincerest appreciation goes out to those courageous responders who risk their lives day in and day out to protect and serve their neighbors.

For today's challenge, we are thrilled to welcome back Melanie as a Guest Designer. Melanie shares her adventures in crafting at Cards by Melanie and her bright, cheery, whimsical kiddie cards never fail to delight. Today's card feaatures an adorable pair of mice gleefully offering up thanks for a job well done. 

Yes, this month we are featuring thank you cards, but not cards 4 the kids. These are cards that the kids and their families can give to nurses, doctors, hospital staffers.... give to anybody who has done a little something special for them. 

So, let's take a look at what Melanie and our SAS4Kids DT have created this month!

While we are focusing on thank you cards this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for this month's challenge and you have until Friday, September 2 to link up your creation. While you aren't required to donate your linked-up card to SAS4Kids, one of our hospitalized patients would love it if you did. Card submission information can be found by clicking on the tabs at the top of this page.

As always, thanks so much for your support of SAS4Kids. Hope to see you in our August Gallery!
