Early Holiday Wishes 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 Early Holiday Wishes 4 Kids! Create and link any Christmas card for a child and you could win one of our great prizes.

If you are wondering why we are starting with Christmas holiday cards already, it is because we want to remind you to start making cards for our kids in the hospitals we serve at Christmas time. Each child should receive a card, of course, but we would also like to donate enough that each child could pick some for family or friends, teachers or classmates they are missing while in the hospital over the holidays. Of course you do not have to donate your card to participate in our challenges, but our kids sure hope you do.

We have three very generous sponsors for this challenge: Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet is giving their winner 3 digis of their choice (a $10 value)! Kitchen Sink Stamps is giving their randomly picked winner a $25 gift certificate!  And DRS Design’s winner gets a $10 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 Reindeer Ralph and Simple Pleasures stamps from DRS Designs. I cut the front of a red card base down to two inches and embossed some hanging ornaments. I printed the lovely holiday sentiment on a white piece, punched a snowflake in the top and attached to the inside of the red card. I printed Reindeer Ralph on a patterned dp, cut him out and attached him with a pop dot to raise.  

This sweet digital image is called "In the Meadow, We can Build a Snowman" by Reece's Scrap Pieces at Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet. I printed her in color, created some snow drifts with glitter and paper and layered her on a blue piece. CAS but really cute for one of our kids.

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenges at Holly Jolly Christmas and 613 Avenue Create.
