SAS4Kids January Gems

 Hi, everyone! Welcome back!

Our thanks to everyone who played along with last month's Love/Valentines 4 Kids Challenge and/or sent cards to our shippers. It can be tough gearing up to make Valentine cards so soon after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. We appreciate all of our wonderful card makers who did just that. You all are the best! 

Our January Gallery was filled with adorable cards. Here are three that caught our eyes. It's interesting how these cards were created using such vastly different techniques: intense masking and inking, using some fun stickers, and creating an intricate high-tech pattern. Yet, these three different techniques resulted in three fabulous kiddie cards. Great job, ladies!  

Karen masterfully inked a rainbow-colored card 
that a tween/teen will love receiving!

Alicia's letter-bearing gnomes are sure to bring a huge smile to a little face!

And, Deanne's shaped critter card is just so stinkin' cute!

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

Our current Spring/Easter Cards 4 Kids Challenge runs until March 3. While we are featuring Spring/Easter 4 Kids this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for the challenge. 

It is not required that you donate your card after entering, but a hospitalized kiddie/tween/teen would surely appreciate it if you did. This year, the deadline for getting Easter cards to your favorite shipper(s) is March 12.... which will be here before we know it. Right? 

Thanks for stopping by. And, as always, thank you for all you do for our SAS4Kids patients.

SAS4Kids: Easter/Spring Cards 4 Kids

Hi, everyone! It's the first Saturday of a new month and it's time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge. Our February theme is Easter or Spring Cards 4 Kids.

While we crafters are busy finishing up Valentine cards and treats for our family and friends, our shippers have already packed up those Valentine/love boxes of cards for their hospitals. Now they are starting to have visions of bunnies hopping about in their heads. So, here at SAS4Kids, it's time to ink up all those cute little bunnies and color all those pretty Easter egg images. The deadline for getting Easter cards to our shippers is March 12... which will be here before we know it. 

Here are the cards our gals have created for this challenge!

You have until noon US/Central Time on Friday, March 3, to join in our current challenge. While we are focusing on Easter and Spring cards, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up to play along. It is not required that you send your card to one of our shippers. but an in-patient child/teen would love it if you did.

As always, thank you for your support of SAS4Kids. We look forward to seeing your bunnies, Easter eggs, and ??? in our February gallery. 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
