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. There were so many cheery holiday cards in our November gallery. Here are three that caught our DT's eyes. 

Bernie's framed Santa is sure to be loved 
by kids and their parents alike. Just gorgeous!

Kids love sparkly... 
and Trina's iridescent foiled background is a real showstopper! 

Take a close look to see that Melanie's penguins' hats
coordinate with her rainbow-colored background. How fun! 

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

  • Be sure to grab our Top 3 badge to display on your blog.
  • If you would like to join us as a Guest Designer for a future challenge, email Sybrina at cards[dot]by[dot]sybrina[at]gmail[dot]com. Include SAS4Kids DT in the subject line.

Our current Winter Cards 4 Kids Challenge runs until January 6. 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 new years.

SAS4Kids: Winter Cards 4 Kids

Hi, everyone! Yes, it is the first Saturday of a new month. First Saturdays around here mean it's time for a new challenge. First Saturdays in December -- yes, DECEMBER!!! -- mean it's time for a Winter Cards 4 Kids Challenge. 

This time of year, our SAS4Kids shippers are certainly busy putting finishing touches on the holiday card boxes going out to our hospitals. The deadline for getting Christmas/holiday cards to the shippers is actually this Monday. So, if you have last minute cards you were planning on sending to a shipper, please reach out to her ASAP. 

Time to take a look at our gals wintry creations. We have a fun shaker card, some cute critters, and a couple of adorable snowpeople. And, if you're interested in getting a head start on possible Valentine Cards 4 Kids, wintry love cards are always a great option. 

You have until January 6 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 challenge 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. 

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season! See you in the new year!
