SAS4Kids: October Shout-Outs!

Hi, everyone! It's time for a Shout-Out Saturday here at SAS4Kids!

Last month's gallery was a holiday mash-up. There were fall/Halloween cards and winter/Christmas cards. Here are three cards that caught our DT's eyes.

This gorgeous Christmas tree is a pop-up card. Yes, you read that right.
Maria Giselle really outdid herself when she created this interactive masterpiece!

Valerie's card is so special. "Snow" special!
That fun edge, her colorful dp, and two sweet creatures make for one fab card. 

Andrea employed seriously precise techniques to create this whimsical shaker.
How clever to use clear seed beads to replicate snowflakes. Really clever!

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.

Our Cards 4 Kids Challenge runs until December 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. 

As always, thank you all so much for your support of SAS4Kids. And, on behalf of all of us here at SAS4Kids, we wish you a blessed Thanksgiving.
