Send A Smile for Kids - Christmas in July!

 
                                                         SEND A SMILE 4 KIDS
Christmas in July Challenge and Blog Hop Celebrating our 175th Challenge!

Welcome to our huge blog hop and celebration of Send A Smile 4 Kids’ 175th Challenge! The theme of our blog hop is Christmas in July 4 Kids because it is never too early to start making holiday cards for all the kids in the many children’s hospitals we now serve. We would love for each child to receive a holiday card as well as be able to pick some for special medical staff or loved ones they are missing during the holiday season.

This is my card for the hop - I've used Echo Park patterned paper, the Simon Says Stamp window die (partial cut to make the 'windows'), and Flora and Fauna clear stamps. This will be one of the many holiday cards I deliver to my hospital: Mary Bridge Children's in Tacoma, WA.






I am the last of 17 stops in the blog hop, and at each stop you have one or two chances at winning just by leaving a comment. You can also earn a chance to win a prize by commenting on the blog post on our SAS4Kids blog and also by entering the Christmas in July challenge which starts July 21st and runs through August 3rd at noon.
You probably came from Donna Wakefield, but you can always go back to Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge to find ALL the links!

Here are the rules for this blog hop:
**You do not need to comment on every stop of the blog hop to have a chance to win a prize. One comment on any of the blogs or on the main SAS4Kids blogpost qualifies you to win one of the prizes on that blog. If you leave a comment on each stop, you will have earned 16 chances to win a prize, and if you enter a card in the Christmas in July 4 Kids challenge, you will also earn a chance to win one of 8 random prizes there.

**You MUST have an USA mailing address to qualify to win any of the prizes. We apologize to any of our readers outside of the USA, but this is a requirement to win any of the prizes in this blog hop and in the Christmas in July challenge.

**The blog hop begins today, July 21st  and will continue until July 31st at midnight CST. When the blog hop is done, all the winners will be drawn randomly from the commenters on each blog and on the main blog, and announced on the SAS4Kids blog on August 4th and on each individual blog. If your name is listed as a winner, you must contact Karen at khasheck@gmail.com BEFORE August 18th at midnight CST with your NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS AND MAILING ADDRESS. If you do not contact Karen before August 18th at midnight CST, your prize will be forfeited.

**The Christmas in July 4 Kids challenge at SAS4Kids will run from July 21st until August 3rd at Noon CST (as is typical of our two week challenges.) You can qualify for one of 8 prizes by entering a Christmas or holiday card appropriate for a child following the rules of all of our challenges found in the page above. The prizes will be awarded by random drawing and announced with the rest of the winners on August 4th on our blog.

  1. Ah, Dena, what child doesn't love the idea of a little "peek-a-boo" card -- reminds me of the "find" books where children have to lift up the flaps. This is absolutely adorable, and will most likely be shared many a time with friends of the recipient. Awesome.
