Guest Design slot for Paper Creations Ink challenge 12

I was privileged to have my card spotlighted on Paper Creations Ink for their challenge 8 and, as a result, was given a Guest Design slot for their challenge 12. You will find details of this challenge here.

Holiday wishes for kids

Paper Creations Ink have teamed up with SAS4KIDS for challenge 12. Here is some information given on Paper Creations Ink 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 SAS4Kids is donating them to the Children’s Hospitals in Neenah and Milwaukee, WI, University of Iowa Children's Hospital, Iowa City, IA, Blank Children's Hospital, Des Moines, IA, Sandford Children's Hospital, Sioux Falls, SD and to the B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia and the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton , Alberta in Canada. On any given day, there are many children inpatient in these hospitals, so SAS4Kids 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 to give to parents or relatives on special days like birthdays or Mothers or Fathers Day.
At this time SAS4Kids is hoping to receive enough Holiday cards so that every child in these hospitals on or around Christmas will receive a card to cheer them and their families. Please do not make your cards religion specific as the nurses do not always know what religion the child’s family is. Any cheery winter or holiday card would be great!
Send a Smile 4 Kids is going to be the featured charity in CardMaker Magazine’s January issue (on stands in December) in their Readers Reach Out section. We are thrilled to be helped by card drives such as this one at Paper Creations Ink and in the Cardmaker Magazine and look forward to receiving your cards to help cheer our kids.
The addresses to send your cards to are:
SAS4Kids c/o Sarah Taylor, 3419 7th Ave, Sioux City, Iowa 51106 OR
SAS4Kids (Canada) c/o Shelley Dureau, 2525 Cable Court, Coquitlam, BC V3H 3G1 Canada OR
SAS4Kids (Canada) c/o Lynnette Pinno, Box 1256, Camrose, Alberta T4V 1X2 OR
SAS4 Kids c/o Karen Hasheck, 5507 Hickory St, Schofield, WI 54476
Please refer to the blog at for card guidelines and any other details you may need as well as information on the Send a Smile 4 Kids twice monthly challenges.

Digi Doodle Shop is sponsoring Paper Creations Ink challenge 12 and supplied the team with digis to be used for this challenge, so my card features their delightful Stocking Puppy digital image, coloured with copics. I added stickles crystal ice glitter glue to the cuff of the stocking. All papers used are K & Co Secret Santa. I used a 7 x 5 card base.
