Winter Fun 4 Kids at Send a Smile 4 Kids!

It’s time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids and this time our theme is Winter Fun 4 Kids. Your cards can be holiday cards or any winter themed cards. We have three very generous sponsors this week: The Cutting Café is giving their winner 3 digis or cutting files of their choice! And Crackerbox Palace is giving their randomly picked winner a $15 Gift Certificate! Cuddly Buddly’s winner will receive a 5 pound 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. Please visit the blog to see all the great cards shared by the TEAM S.A.S. design team. 

My first card above features a darling sliding snowman from Crackerbox Palace. I created a snowglobe shape for my card, did a little paper piecing and sponging, and added some snowflakes and a couple perfect sentiments also from Crackerbox Palace.

My second card features a mitten shape from a cutting file by The Cutting Cafe'. I love to make fun shaped cards and The Cutting Cafe's files make them so easy to do. I embossed the mitten shape and added a snowflake shape and a sentiment to complete the CAS card.

My last winter fun card for my kids is an easel card created with a darling freebie from Cuddly Buddly. I printed it twice and cut out and raised the twin skating bears with pop dots. The card is folded and stands up with a row of raised snowflakes punched out with my Martha Stewart snowflake border punch. 

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp and the challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty for "more than one fold."

Stamping smiles for my kids, Karen
