SAS4Kids and Fall card ideas

Welcome to anyone stopping by, if you’re following me, thank you! πŸ™‚Β  Today I have a card for Send A Smile 4 Kids again! πŸ™‚Β  Their challenge is always Anything goes, but sometimes they have an added challenge.Β  This next two weeks it will be Slime, Humorous Cards 4 kids or Anything goes.

Here is the story about why it’s a slime challenge.

The theme for this challenge is: Humorous or Slimy Cards 4 Kids OR Anything Goes 4 Kids. Some of us on TEAM SAS are featuring slime on our cards and here is the funny story why: I was visiting a blog of a frequent player in our challenges and I noticed she had our blog badge on the side of her blog promoting our challenge and cause, and of course I was thrilled to see that. But she made a small error in the spelling of β€œSend a Smile” and it read: Send a SLIME 4 KidsJ Β What a difference mixing up just two letters resulted in! It cracked me up and I shared with the blogger so she could correct it after we laughed about it. I also shared the laugh with my dt members and we decided to use the β€œslime” and humor in a challenge. Kids love humor and slime, so accept our challenge and see what you can come up with.

I, personally, just made a Fall card, because my theme is Fall cards for kids this week.Β  I know a lot of you have trouble with the “theme” being Fall or Winter cards.Β  I’ve found a few examples of cards that show Halloween is not the ONLY thing happening in the Fall!

Here is my card, it has Fall paper with a general sentiment:

Here are a few more that I’ve made:

 

Now I have a few from repeat donor, Trish Cudney of MN πŸ™‚

Here Trish used the sentiments, “Thinking of You”, “Hello”, and “I never met a nut I didn’t like” πŸ™‚Β  She also included some blank (no sentiment) cards that can be used for anything.Β  Nice Fall papers and cute images! πŸ™‚Β  Thank you Trish for sending in these wonderful cards that will be fun for our kids! πŸ™‚

I hope you’ve enjoyed these samples and have a better idea of what I mean when I say “Fall themed” cards πŸ™‚

I’m happy you’ve decided to stop by today, I hope you’ve been inspired! πŸ™‚Β  Please visit the SAS4Kids challenge page and see what everyone else is doing! πŸ™‚Β  You might even like to join in the fun! πŸ™‚

Hope you see you again soon! πŸ™‚
