Send a Smile 4 Kids: Challenge 129 – Christmas in July

Happy Saturday my Friends.  Today at Send a Smile 4 Kids (SAS4Kids) we are celebrating “Christmas in July.”

If you aren’t familiar with SAS4Kids, their commitment is to support 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 for kids. To find out more about donation, look here.

This challenge will run through Friday, August 5th 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) The Cutting Cafe:   3 Digital/Cut Files for our Winner

2) Kitchen Sink Stamps: Prize: $25 Dollar Gift Certificate

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

Now, let’s get to some inspiration!  My card is made using a PDF file from The Cutting Cafe, called “Christmas Card Fun.”  The cool thing about Cutting Cafe is their very affordable files come in both PDF and SVG files, which are used for electronic cutters.  As I don’t have an electronic cutter, I printed off the PDF on design paper and embellished with gold Sakura pen.  On the Cutting Cafe website, there are many great tutorials using this same file for both a shaker and treat cup project.  My snowflakes are cut from glitter paper using a Lawn Fawn die and the sentiment is Paper Smooches.

 

Christmas in July

I hope you’ll join us for our Christmas in July Challenge and consider donating some cards to Send a Smile 4 Kids.
