Send a Smile 4 Kids: Challenge 111 – Early Holiday Wishes

Happy Saturday my Friends.  Here at Send a Smile 4 Kids (SAS4Kids) we are celebrating some early Holiday Wishes. SAS4Kids is committed to supporting hospitalized children by providing home-made cards that parents, staff, or even the kids themselves can give during this time of need.  It’s not a sad cause, in fact, we don’t focus on Get Well cards at all, but make the cards happy and fun.   I sure hope you will join both in our challenge and by sending in some cards, especially during this holiday season.  To find out more about donation, look here.

This challenge will run through October 16th and give you a great head start on some holiday card making.  This challenge is sponsored by some very generous donors who are giving away some great gifts for the winning entry.  The design team also chooses their favorite so there are lots of ways to win.

The donors and prizes are:

1) DeeDee Digi:  Prize: $15.00 Gift Certificate

2) Bugaboo: Prize:  7 Digital Images of Winners Choice

3) One Happy Cut: Prize  $15 Dollar Gift Certificate

Wow – thank you sponsors, Send a Smile 4 Kids really appreciates your support.

My first card features “DeeDee Digi’s Merry & Bright.”  This is an adorable penguin pair comes both in line images and pre-colored. There is also some great sentiments in this set and was super fun to color with my Copic Markers. The snow globe is a die from My Favorite Things, the paper pack is “Bundled Up” by Carta Bella, my sentiment is Clearly Besotted, and I cut out glittered snowflakes using the Lawn Fawn snowflake die.


My second card is from Bugaboo “Make it Snappy – Merry Christmoose,”  I also colored this with Copic Markers.  The paper pack is Lawn Fawn”Peace, Joy, Love.” The card base die is Simon Says Stamp.


We can’t wait to see what your early Holiday Wishes look like at Send a Smile 4 Kids!

For my card I chose Milk Coffee’s Lisbeth and Balloon, which I colored with Copic Markers and used the My Minds Eye “Collectible” paper pack.  The sentiment is My Favorite Things cut out on one of their label dies. The card base die is Simon Says Stamp.
