More Holiday Wishes 4 our Kids

It's time for another new challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids and we are challenging you to make some holiday cards for kids and enter them in our challenge for THREE chances at a great prize from our sponsors. After you do, there is still time to send the card into any of our four addresses so we can spread some holiday cheer to our kids who are inpatient in any of the seven children's hospitals we are now donating the cards to. Please visit our blog to see the rest of TEAM S.A.S. cards as well as three by a special guest dt member.

Our wonderful sponsors for the Happy Holiday Wishes Challenge are: Prairie Fairy, who is offering a $15 gift certificate to a random winner; The Cutting Cafe', who is donating 3 sets of digital stamps or cutting files to one lucky winner; and Digital Delights, and their prize is 3 images of the winner's choice!

I had so much fun designing with the digital stamps from our sponsors as well as great digital paper and borders from The Cutting Cafe'! The cute snowman above is from Prairie Fairy. The dotted paper is from The Cutting Cafe' and I paper pieced the snowman over the paper. The bird and the hat were also paper pieced and then I added Diamond Dust to the snow.

My second card features a sweet dog from Digital Delights. More paper piecing, a little coloring and some flock and then I cut out with nesties labels die and did a little sponging. The card is a pocket that I embossed with a holly embossing folder and added some red gems for berries and a sparkly red ribbon.

Inside the pocket is a card made with two fun borders from The Cutting Cafe'. The dotted paper on the stocking is also from them. So a couple more holiday cards from the kids are done. How about you join us and enter your fun holiday cards in the challenge and then send them on in to cheer a child who is in the hospital during the holidays?

I am entering my cards in the challenges Digi Doodles Shop's Best for Red and Green cards, and at Moving Along with the Times for Let it Snow.
