SAS4Kids: February Favorites

Hi, everyone! Happy Weekend! We hope you all are doing well after recent weather events. 

A huge heartfelt thanks to everyone who made spring/Easter cards this year for our in-patient kids. With Easter just a few weeks away, our shippers are busy packing up their hospitals' spring/Easter boxes. (Please note: Our deadline for sending in Easter cards has passed. So please contact your shipper(s) ASAP if you have Easter cards you were planning on dropping in the mail. Thank you!)

Spring/Easter cards can be so cute, so fun, and so colorful. Here are three cards from last month's gallery that caught the eyes of our designers.

8. Andrea's Paper Antics

Nothing says spring like pastel colors and flowers, right?! 
And, we love, love, love interactive cards around these parts.

12. For Each Petal...

What a cute image... and what fabulous coloring.
Great job, Lisa!

15. I Luv Scrapping Too

Suzanne's perfectly-colored bunny gnome is so cute...
and that stitched background is awesome!

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

SAS4Kids: Cards 4 Boys

Hi, everyone! Thanks for joining us for our new challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids!

As our shippers make final preparations to ship out boxes of spring/Easter cards to our hospitals, our Design Team turns its attention to Cards 4 Boys. Our shippers always do a special happy dance when they receive guy cards from their cardmakers.  

So, without further ado, here are the guy cards our DT created for this month's challenge.  

You have until noon CST on Friday, March 31, to join in this current challenge. While we have focused on Cards 4 Boysany 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. 

Here are the deadlines for getting cards to your favorite shipper(s) for a few upcoming holidays. As you can see, our Easter deadline is right around the proverbial corner. (I actually mailed my cards yesterday.) So, if you still have Easter cards you will be sending to your shipper(s), please let her/them know your cards are on their way.

Spring/Easter: March 12
Mothers Day: April 15
Father's Day: May 15

As always, thank you soooo much for your support of SAS4Kids. We can't wait to see what you share with us in this month's gallery.
