SAS4Kids: July Jewels

Hi, everyone! Oh my gosh! There were so many cute cards in our Christmas in July Gallery last month. We card makers sure do love making cards for the holidays, don't we?!

A huge thank you to everyone who played along with us. Here are three cards that caught our designers' eyes.

5. Cornelia

Fabulous single-layered CAS cards are always works of art...
and these beautifully-colored critters are adorable. Terrific job, Cornelia!

8. Chris

Chris's snow family is sure to bring a huge smile to a little face,
and we know kids of all ages love fun-folds. 

15. Rosi

Rosi offers up a punny sentiment that a tween/teen is sure to appreciate.
And, that fussy-cutting is amazing. Seriously AMAZING!

Congratulations, ladies! Great job!!! 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. Please include SAS4Kids DT in your email subject line.

Our current Birthday Cards 4 Kids Challenge runs until September 1. 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. 

Again, a huge thanks to everyone who played along last month. And, as always, thank you for all you do for SAS4Kids. The hospital staffs and our patients' families so appreciate it!

SAS4Kids: Birthday Cards 4 Kids

 Hi, everyone! 

Thank you for joining us for a new challenge here at SAS4Kids. Hope you are enjoying these lazy, hazy days of summer... and that you are finding ways to stay cool during these dog days of summer.

We have one more month before we start focusing on fall and winter holidays. Today we are featuring birthday cards 4 kids... in the hope of helping our shippers stock up on birthday cards to include in their holiday boxes.

    Upcoming deadlines:
    Cute Fall/Halloween - October 5
    Thanksgiving - November 5
    Christmas/Winter Cards - December 5

For today's challenge, we are thrilled to welcome back Melanie as a Guest Designer. Melanie's creations are such a delight and we are always thrilled when she shares her cardmaking talents with us. You can follow along with Melanie's crafting adventures at Cards by Melanie.

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

While we are focusing on birthday cards this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for this month's challenge and you have until Friday, September 1 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 Card Gallery!
