SAS4Kids: February Favorites!

Hi, everyone! Happy Weekend! 

Spring/Easter cards are always so fun to make, aren't they?! They always offer a perfect opportunity to ink up baby animal stamps and use pretty pastel-colored papers. Here are three Spring/Easter cards that caught the eyes of our DT.  

2. Arlene R

We just loved Arlene's CAS design... and chocolate bunny...
and fun, fun sentiment. What a cute card!

3. Donna W

Donna's sweet duckling and pretty colors make for a happy, happy card!
I'm going to have to remember this strategy for using up dp scraps.  :)

7. Trina

Not only does Trina's shaped card feature a baby animal and pastel colors,
it also showcases her amazing phantasmic coloring skills. Truly phantasmic! 

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

Our current challenge runs until April 5. While we are featuring Cards 4 Boys this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for the challenge. It is not required that you donate your card after entering, but a hospitalized kiddie/tween/teen would surely appreciate it if you did. 

Upcoming Deadlines for Getting Cards to Shippers:
Spring/Easter: Deadline has passed
Mother's Day: April 15
Father's Day: May 15

As always, thank you for your support of SAS4Kids. We so appreciate you and everything you do to bring smiles to our SAS4Kids patients and their families.

SAS4Kids: Cards 4 Boys

Hi, everyone! It's the first Saturday of March... which means it's time for a new challenge here at Send a Smile 4 Kids. 

Our shippers are putting final touches on their boxes of spring/Easter cards, and the next holiday on our calendar is Mother's Day. So, we are using this brief respite in our calendar to feature non-holiday-specific Cards 4 Boys

So, without further ado, here are the really great boy cards our DT created for this month's challenge. I just love how bright, how colorful, and how cheerful these cards are.

With the way the calendar falls, you have until noon CST on Friday, April 5, to join in this current challenge. There's a little extra time this month! And, 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.

Spring/Easter: this coming Monday, March 4 
             If you still have Spring/Easter cards to get to your favorite shipper, please contact her ASAP. Thanks!
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.
