SAS4Kids: August Accolades

Hi, everyone! A big thanks to everyone who played along with our August Birthday Card Challenge. 

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

11. Lorraine

Speaking of shouting it out, Lorraine's little bunny is getting the job done!
And you all know how much we love shaker/interactive cards here.  :)

12. Valerie

Valerie's party animal couldn't be any sweeter, and
we loved everything about her CAS design. EVERYTHING about it!

Darnell's flying-high balloons are practically bursting with happiness!
This ink-lifting technique (aka faux bleaching) made for a wonderful focal point.  

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. Include SAS4Kids DT in the subject line.

Our current Cute Fall/Halloween Cards 4 Kids Challenge runs until October 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 your shippers' needs before sending cards their way. 

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

SAS4Kids: Cute Fall/Halloween Cards 4 Kids

It's the first Saturday in September... which not only means it's time for a new SAS4Kids challenge, but also time to watch some football, get in one last visit to the local neighborhood pool, and grill up some hotdogs. We send greetings to all for a happy Labor Day weekend. Moreover, we send our thoughts to all those affected by Hurricane Idalia.

Around here September means it's time to ink up some jack-o-lanterns and cut out some autumn-colored leaves. Yep, it's time to make some cute fall/Halloween cards to send to our SAS4Kids shippers. Our shippers are looking for cute, fun, whimsical fall/Halloween-themed cards that loved ones and hospital staff can give to the kids. 

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

This month, we have two SAS4Kids cardmakers joining us as Guest Designers. Lucky, lucky us! 

We are thrilled to welcome back Deanne, who has a real knack for creating cute kiddie cards and has guested with us several times before. Deanne's adventures in crafting, where she shares adorable cards like the one below, can be found at A Little Bit o' Paper

And, we are thrilled to welcome Maria Giselle as a first time SAS4Kids Guest Designer. Maria Giselle's cards are delightful and we were so excited when she accepted our invitation to join us for today's challenge. You can see more crafty creations like the card below at Maria Giselle's Creative Cuts.

We can't tell you, Deanne and Maria Giselle, how much we appreciate you. Thank you for joining us today! Thank you for all you do for SAS4Kids!  

While we are featuring cute fall/Halloween cards this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for this month's challenge and you have until Friday, October 6 to link up your creation. While you aren't required to donate your card to SAS4Kids in order to play along, one of our hospitalized patients would love it if you did. Card guidelines and shipper information can be found by clicking on the tabs at the top of this page.

As always, thank you for joining us here at SAS4Kids. We can't wait to see your creation in our September gallery. And, we hope you have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
