SAS 4 Kids new DT member & Challenge

I am just so excited to share with everyone that I am now part of a new DT for Send A Smile 4 Kids. Karen, who I was a fellow DT member with for another blog, came to me and asked me if I would be interested and I honestly had no idea about this wonderful blog. I was completely thrilled to join especially after I found out what it is for. The challenges run every 2 weeks and here is a little information about SAS 4 Kids from their blog: Send A Smile 4 Kids is a charitable blog created for the purpose of collecting donated handmade cards to be distributed to children while they are inpatient at Children’s Hospitals. Currently we are donating them to the Children’s Hospitals in Neenah and Milwaukee, WI. On any given day, there are 50-60 children inpatient in these hospitals so we would love to receive as many cards as you can send to cheer them and their families. The kids may also use your cards as Thank You Notes to the nurses and doctors and others. Any kid's cards are welcome including: birthday, holidays (not religious specific please) and happy any day cards.

Now onto today's card and next challenge:

The next 2 week challenge is #16- Punches and Diecuts for Kids. The challenge sponsor's are Sassy Cheryl's ($5.00 Gift Certificate), Crop Stop ($15.00 Gift Certificate) and The Stamp Shoppe ($15.00 Gift Certificate). I made two cards, for a girl and a boy. Both cards used images from Sassy Cheryl's called, "The Bubble Blower" and "Pumpkin Wagon Boy". I colored them up with Prismacolors and different die cuts and punches were used for both that I have listed in the Recipe below. I hope that all of you can hop over and take a look at this wonderful blog and if you still need more incentive they are actually going to post a picture of me, ugh, so at least you will now know what my crazy mug looks like ;) Have a fabulous Saturday everyone :)
