Birthday Wishes Challenge

Have you noticed this image popping up recently on social media?
Stampin' Up have set a challenge for demonstrators, their customers - anyone who'd like to take part, in making 10,000 birthday cards this weekend in aid of the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Ronald McDonald House Charities provides free 'home away from home' accommodation to families while their child is in hospital. There are 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across the UK, all located close to specialist children's hospitals. The Houses are open 365 days a year and are equipped with everything you would find in a family home. Families can get a good night's sleep, prepare their own meals and feel at home, knowing that they are only moments away from their child (

Whilst I'm not holding an event myself, I will be supporting 3 other demos at their events. We will be making cards like crazy!

Another way to support this worthwhile charity is to purchase the stamp set called 'Sharing Sweet Thoughts'. Every time a set is purchase £2.00 is donated by Stampin' Up! to the charities. The set consists of 13 stamps and has a bright, summery feel.
As you can see, the woodmount set is £26 (find it in the shop HERE), the clearmount is £19 (it can be found in the shop HERE )
Here are some examples of cards from Stampin' Up! which have been made using this set
