Anything Goes 4 Kids at Send a Smile 4 Kids!


It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is ANYTHING GOES 4 KIDS! Create and link any card appropriate for a child, and you could win one of our great prizes.

We have three very generous sponsors for this challenge: Crackerbox Palace is giving their winner 3 digital images of any of their stamps!  All Dressed Up Stamps is giving their randomly picked winner 2 digis of their choice!  And Sassy Studio’s winner gets 4 digis! TEAM S.A.S will also be choosing their favorite cards for our top three and the winners will receive a blog badge and an opportunity to be a guest design team member on a future challenge.

My first card features a funny Santa stuck in a chimney from Crackerbox Palace. I stamped Santa, the snowflakes and the Merry Christmas wish on a white card base and paper pieced Santa and the chimney. I die cut a stitched rectangle in the center of a patterned card front and attached a piece of acetate over the hole. I dumped in a bunch of glass glitter "snow" and attached the front to make a shaker card.
My second card features a fun digital stamp from All Dressed Up Stamps called "Cool Dudes". I printed him on a blue cardstock and cut it out with a square stitched die. I layered that on a grey patterned cardstock square card. As usual, I paper pieced all the skateboarder's and his dog's parts with patterned and kraft pieces. 

I am entering the first card in the Christmas challenges at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the second card at Jennifer McGuire's Share Handmade Kindness Week 3 For Kids. (These cards are going to be donated to Send a Smile 4 Kids to cheer a hospitalized child.)
