Not only did I want to tell you all about the Stampin' Party detailed above I wanted to share with you a card I've made for the St Luke's Charity Card Challenge. This is a great challenge blog and one everyone should consider following and joining in with the challenges.  All you need to do is make a card for the challenge and then try to send at least one card with envelope and cello bag to the Charity Card Challenge organisers. You can find the details on the blog here.  The cards are then sold to help with fundraising for St Luke's Hospice.  Please try to follow this blog as they are also looking for sponsors to make it more fun for us all to enter and need to have plenty of followers to encourage sponsors. It's a monthly challenge so the commitment isn't great so please try and join in.  Next month I will be sponsoring the challenge so please pop back to see my guest design entry and more importantly the prize you could win if you enter the challenge.
This month's challenge is 'Come fly with me', hence my butterfly card on shimmery white cardstock, brayered with baja breeze and decorated with rhinestones onto the emboss elegant bouquet backdrop.  The butterfly is also there for a reason as it's from the Strength and Hope stamp set which is from our mini catalogue and is Stampin' Up! 's charity set. For each set sold in all their markets a donation will be made by Stampin' Up! to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Here in the UK, £1 from every set sold is donated.  So here's your chance to help two worthy causes that affect the lives of so many; join in with the challenge over at St Luke's and contact your Stampin' Up! demonstrator to buy this beautiful stamp set.
Thanks for visiting me and signing up to follow St Luke's Hospice Charity Card Challenge.
