Stampin Up UK - Cards for Keeps

Stampin' Up! UK Cards for Keeps

The Stampin' Up! UK Cards for Keeps auction is up and running.  This is your chance to bid on cards made by celebrities in aid of the charity Coram, which is the oldest children's charity in the UK.

Stampin' Up! UK demonstrators were also asked to submit cards of which one lucky person has been chosen to have their card listed on ebay for this very worthy cause.  The winner is Helen and her beautiful card can be seen on her blog.  This is the card I sent in.  It's very different and I really like how it turned out and was really unsure about ever giving it away, but I hope along with Helen's that it and all the other cards sent in by Stampin' Up! UK demonstrators are put to good use to raise funds for Coram.
