SAS4Kids: Winter Cards 4 Kids

Hi, everyone! Yes, it is the first Saturday of a new month. Around these parts, first Saturdays mean it's time for a new kiddie card challenge. But before we get to this month's theme and DT cards, we have a bit of bittersweet news to share here at SAS4Kids. 

This challenge marks Karen Hasheck's last as a Design Team Member... and boy, oh boy, are we ever going to miss her. Jen and I fondly have referred to Karen as our fearless leader. For a decade or more, Karen single-handedly coordinated all things SAS4Kids. Moreover, she orchestrated the transition when Jen and I took over SAS4Kids operations. While we are sad for us, we are thrilled for Karen knowing she will have even more time for teaching her wonderful card classes and enjoying those amazing grandkids' visits. If you have a moment, please stop by Karen's Kreative Kards and thank her for all she's done to bring big smiles to faces of in-patient little ones. 

Now, without further ado, this month's theme is Winter Cards 4 Kids. Something tells me we have a few snowpeople and a few cute critters in our future.  :)

You have until January 5 to play along with this month's challenge. While we are featuring winter cards this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up to play along. Even though you don't have to send your card to SAS4Kids to join in the challenge fun, an in-patient child/teen would love it if you did. 

A quick reminder: The deadline for getting Christmas/holiday cards to the shippers is actually this Tuesday. If you have last minute cards you were planning on sending to a shipper, please reach out to her ASAP. If you have a little bonus crafting time and want to get a head start on those 2024 Love/Valentine cards, the deadline for getting those to our shippers is January 15. 

Lastly, I know we say this every month, but we are so appreciative for your support of Send a Smile 4 Kids. I remember being overwhelmed with gratitude when I packed up holiday cards to send to the kids at Nationwide Children's. Each card we send out is a work of heart and we thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts. 

All of us here at Send a Smile 4 Kids wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season! See you in the new year!
