Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cheer Challenge

Last weekend I hosted two card making sessions, to support the great Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cheer Challenge.  What is this “Challenge”, I hear you ask?  Well, Stampin’ Up! was on a mission to make 10,000 Christmas cards for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).  RMHC provides free “home away from home” accommodation for families with children in hospital.

 For my sessions, I asked each attendee to make 10 greetings cards – utilising 5 different designs – and to donate half of them to the “Challenge”.  A good time was had by all and, in total, 108 cards were made, a lot of tea was drunk, and a fair few biscuits were eaten along the way (it is written somewhere that a card making army marches on its stomach – not too sure about that, but I can confirm that crafting is thirsty work!).  The pictures included here hopefully give a flavour of the days’ activities and the fruits of our labours!  Whoever thought that being part of a production line could be this much fun?  And all for a great cause, too.  A huge thank you to everyone who took part. 

I'm pleased to report that the final card count for the Christmas Card Challenge was 17,778!  What a whopping great number of cards donated to RMHC!  I'm so pleased to have been part of this event.
