DT Card for SAS4Kids: # 21 Early Holiday Wishes 4 Kids

Card 1

Card 2

Hi everyone, it's Send a Smile 4 Kids time again. Long post today, so grab a cuppa  and take your time reading. It's all important. Looking forward to checking out your entries.

Card One: The image I used on the top card is from Digital Delights, I chose non traditional colours used paperpiecing as the image lends itself to that. Floral die cut and snowflake from marianne creatables
Card Two:  The second one is an image from shelly's, I used papers from the Kaiser kraft christmas range and marianne creatables fir tree branches.I always colour with promarkers.

We have three generous sponsors for this challenge: Stamp Shoppe Creations is offering one random winner a $15 gift certificate; Shelley's Images is giving a lucky random winner a $9 gift certificate; and Designed 2 Delight is giving a random winner a $10 voucher AND each of the Top Three a $5 voucher! That's right: our Top Three as voted on by our design team wins a sponsor prize this time from Designed 2 Delight as well as a  Blog Badge for your blog and a guest design team opportunity in a future challenge!
On November 7th through November 20th, SAS4Kids is thrilled to be partnering with Paper Creations Ink for a CARD DRIVE for our kids! Here at SAS4Kids and at PCI, the theme of our challenges are “Holiday Wishes for Kids”, and we are asking all who enter our challenges to please mail your holiday cards to Send a Smile 4 Kids to cheer a child who is inpatient in a Children’s Hospital over the holidays. You can enter your children’s holiday card in the challenges at both blogs for twice as many chances to win a great prize from our sponsors! Then please mail it (and any other cards you have appropriate for children in a hospital) to one of the addresses listed on the SAS4Kids blog.
Here is a little about our friends at Paper Creations Ink:
Paper Creations Ink is a challenge blog and so much more! In addition to new challenges on the first and third Mondays of each month, Sara and Michael wanted to create a place where you could find a wealth of knowledge, read about current events that are taking place around the crafting community, discover more ways to be able to make a difference by being involved with a special cause, and be able to have FUN while creating. Isn’t that one of the main reasons we all have come to love crafting?
          Create... Learn... and Share! Paper Creations Ink!
