Sadly this is the very last St Lukes Charity Card Challenge and this time we would like to see Traditional and religious cards with all the trimmings.
This months challenge is JUST FOR FUN, as we are no longer accepting new card to sell on behalf of the hospice, but please post your cards on the blog as there will be some lovely prizes to win, which I will tell you about later.
I would just like to tell you how it all started, Tara came up with the idea two years ago after losing her father and wondered how she could raise money for the hospice and hence 18 months ago the Challenge was started. The challenge has received over 2250 cards for which we are so grateful to you all and for your support. Tara is now unable to do the craft fairs to sell the cards do to personal commitments and after talking to the Hospice shops there was no one who would be able to track the sales or price the cards fairly, so a decision had to be made to end the challenge....although Tara will still support the hospice selling cards at their summer fairs.
We still have a few prizes from our kind Sponsors so thought we would go out with one final challenge so this is what you could win:
A lovely scallop circle die, Humphrey Christmas stamps and a lovely set of Waltzing Mouse stamps.
Please do join in our challenge this month, but DONT send any cards....
a MASSIVE THANK YOU for all your support and your lovely cards you donated we hope you had fun while it lasted.
My card: I have used the bird image and sentiment from Stampin Up Beautiful Season, coloured with Copics and used Glossy Accents on the berries. Image mounted onto Nestability Floral Oval die...Backing paper from my stash, S.U. embossing folder also used, Martha Stewart Holly punch.
I have really enjoyed being part of the Design Team and will miss making my monthly card, thank you Tara for asking me to join your team, you've done a great job and have achieved what you set out to do and that was to raise money for the Hospice...well done my friend.
