Christmas in July Challenge 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 Christmas in July 4 Kids! Create and link any Christmas or Happy Holidays card for a child and you could win one of our great prizes. Check out what the 3 awesome prizes are this time at the SAS4Kids blog here.

We start early here at SAS4Kids for holiday cards because we would love for every one of the kids in the 8 children’s hospitals we currently serve to receive a card on all the major holidays and to be able to pick some out to send to relatives or friends they are missing while in the hospital. So after making your holiday cards of any kind during any time of the year, please consider sending them to one of the addresses under the tabs on the top. If we get them early (or late) we will save them for the next box going to the hospitals close to the holiday.

My first card above features a sweet pre-colored little girl from Whoopsi Daisy. I don't usually do pastels in my Christmas cards, but why not? I created a background with a Martha Stewart border punch and an embossing folder from Darice. Then I printed and cut out the precious girl holding a present.

The image from Doodle Pantry I chose for my second card is called Birdie Christmas and is a pre-colored image as well. I cut him out with a Nestabilities die and attached him to the front of a folded card that has been embossed with a musical note embossing folder from Cuttlebug. Here is the inside of the folded card with a fun sentiment also from Doodle Pantry and some musical punched notes.

I am entering these cards in the Christmas in July challenges at Aud Sentiments and C.R.A.F.T.

You have created some more fantastic Christmas cards. I did a few with pre-colored images myself the last week. But now I have to put all crafting aside and clean and bake for the big company for the summer in a couple weeks. It takes me a long time with my old broken down body to accomplish this. :)

Both of your Christmas cards are so sweet and just too cute! Your coloring is amazing as always.
