Happy Holidays 4 Kids at SAS4Kids!

It’s time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids and this time our theme is Happy Holidays 4 Kids! Yes it is time to start making and sending in your cards for our kids so that every child in our 8 children’s hospitals over the holidays gets a card. And if we have enough, maybe they could also send out or give a card to a loved one they are missing or a teacher or a healthcare worker they want to thank. We can put a lot of smiles on a lot of faces with the cards you send in! You are not required to send in your cards to enter our challenge, but our kids sure hope you do!

We have three very generous sponsors this week: Doodle Pantry is giving their winner 3 digis of their choice! And Scrapping Memories is giving their randomly picked winner 10 digis or cutting files! Sassy Cheryl’s winner will receive a $5 gift certificate!  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 above features some sweet digis from Doodle Pantry from their "Joyful Noise" set. I printed the pre-colored carolers and cut them out with a circular Nestabilities die. I continued the musical theme with red note dp and some punched out musical notes.

My second card features a fun digital stamp from Sassy Cheryl's called Santa's Rushed Letter. I paper pieced most of the little boy rushing off to mail his letter to Santa on time. I layered some squares of dp and cardstock diagonally and straight to frame the cute picture in the middle. 

Scrapping Memories is our third sponsor and I decided to try a circle sidestep card made out of kraft dp and printed the sweet Christmas Wreath Calvin for the focal point on this card for one of my kids. Here is a tutorial on how to make one of these circle sidestep cards. The sentiment is by Crackerbox Palace.
