For a Dad or Special Male Challenge at SAS4Kids

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is For a Dad or Special Male (From the Kids)! Create and link any card for a male that would be appropriate for a child to give, and you could win one of our great prizes.

We are featuring cards for Dads this time to highlight the type of card we are currently looking for. We would love for each child inpatient in the 13 children’s hospitals we now serve to be able to pick out a card for their Dad or any loved male to give them on Father’s Day. To give a child the gift of giving is one of the best things you can do. Or maybe the card would be for Dad’s or Grandpa’s birthday. Thanks for helping us with this mission.

We have three very generous sponsors for this challenge: Dollar Graphics Depot is giving their winner a $15 gift certificate!  Crafty Sentiments is giving their randomly picked winner 3 digis!  And Inspired by Stamping’s winner gets a $20 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 a sweet colored digi from Dollar Graphics Depot that I printed and cut out. I attached him to a colorful background I created with a wavy stitched die and layered that onto a yellow card base. The love die is by Tim Holtz for Sizzix.
My second card is a Father's Day card featuring the sweet "Patches Gone Fishing" from Crafty Sentiments. I paper pieced him and his frog buddy, sponged the sky and water, and cut the scene out with a round Nesties die. I attached a burlap strip on a navy blue strip and added some gems. The sentiment is an old one from TAC. 

I am entering this card in the Design Team Showcase and the Use a Sentiment challenge at Cute Card Thursday.
