Good Morning to you All, we have something a little different for you this time at Stampin with the Dragon, Our challenge is to help promote a card drive for Send a Smile for the Kids, For this challenge you can Make a card for any holiday, ie Halloween, Christmas, etc or you can make a Birthday card.
 
There will be 2 prizes. The first one will be for a holiday theme other than birthday. The Second prize will be for a birthday card. Each winner will receive 4 images winners choice.
I have done one of each, firstly a Christmas card using Rupert with presents,
My Second card is a Birthday card, which is for our beloved leader Janette, its bit early,  Happy Birthday Janette, it a pleasure to work with your wonderful images, I hope you like the card xx

I do hope you will join in with us, and make a holiday card or a Birthday card or Both!  even If you dont have time to join in our challenge this time, please consider making a card to send a Smile for the Kids, 
              
The rules from Send a Smile for Kids........

-All cards must be handmade - no computer card-making programs please, such as Hallmark, etc. and no store bought cards.

-All cards should be made specifically for children ages 0-19.
-Please use loose glitter sparingly (make sure to shake off excess), stickles or glimmer mists are a great alternatives to regular shake-on glitter
-Small embellishments such as brads, buttons, googly eyes should not be used on cards intended for very young children (choking hazard).
-Please leave cards completely blank on the inside so the nurses and staff can write messages to the patient and their family. If there is something on the inside of your card, we can cover it with a blank inside piece or you can.
-Keep the cards upbeat (no "sorry you're sick", "get well soon", etc.), these cards are intended to take the focus off of the hospital and just be a cheery holiday, birthday or any day greeting.
-If you are able to, please include envelopes, especially if your cards are not the standard A2 size (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). If you cannot provide envelopes, you can still send cards and we will provide envelopes where needed.
-The hospitals ask that we not include religious symbols or themes in the cards. Many families have many different faiths and beliefs and the hospital staff is not always aware of what faith a child is.


-About Donations Thank you for your support of SAS4Kids! We do have expenses such as envelopes, shipping and blog costs and if you would consider donating a check to help with those expenses, it would be greatly appreciated. You may send with or without a donation of cards.
 
Please send your check and/or donated cards to: SAS4Kids, C/O Karen Hasheck, 5507 Hickory St., Schofield, WI 54476. Please include an email address or snail mail address so we can acknowledge your gift.
Other than that let your creativity run wild and put some smiles on those little faces!! You may sign or stamp the back of your cards if you wish. All cards received will be labeled "Send A Smile 4 Kids" on the back.
Thank you again! We can't wait to see what you send us for our kids!
I do hope you will join in with us, I always look forward to seeing your cards.
Have a lovely weekend
Kevin xx
