SAS4Kids: Early Holiday Wishes 4 Kids

It's the first Saturday of the month, which means its time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge.

With the upcoming holiday season, it seems like the perfect time for a holiday-themed challenge.

For this challenge, we have two wonderful sponsors donating $15 gift certificates: Dollar Graphics Depot and Dies R Us.

Dollar Graphics Depot

Dies R Us

Dollar Graphics Depot Little Mouse Loves Christmas digital images
Distress Ink core paper; stash cardstock; Neenah Soler white
Paper Studio and Cuttlebug embossing folders;  crimper
Stampin' Up! bow builder and Martha Stewart branch punches: Paper Smooches botanicals 2 die
adhesives: Scotch ATG; foam backing; Recollections foam squares; Zig 2-way glue pen

For my card, I used a trio of adorable Dollar Graphics Depot mice to create a Christmas card for a little one at Nationwide Children's. Our hospital contact has mentioned that she gets a number of requests from parents for totally-free sentiment cards. So, despite my temptation to add a cute little Christmas sentiment from Paper Smooches, I resisted.

Truth be told, I'm still not entirely happy with the bottom third of this card. Nothing I tried felt completely right... because I didn't want to overpower those mice. Regardless, I hope these little critters bring a big smile to a little face.  :)

Hope you'll stop by SAS4Kids to see our gals' holiday creations... and then stop back by to link up a card of your own.

See you in the SAS4Kids Gallery!
