Strength and Hope

As you will know from a previous post, SU are donating £1 to cancer research from every Strength and Hope set sold.  Now this does not just apply to the sets sold in the UK  but to those sold in America, Australia, Germany and France as well.  Wow can you image how much they could be donating and I'm sure you will agree that its a worthy cause as I don't think there are many of us that haven't experienced cancer within our families or friends.

Anyway, my upliner Victoria is holding a charity night in May to promote the set and hopefully manage to sell some to benefit the research.  It is always good to have lots of samples to show the versatility of the set so I've been making some that she will hopefully want to borrow for the event.   For the first one I wanted to do something different and so decided to make a penny spinner card.  I've made these before but not for a long time and was really pleased with the result.

Now the picture was taken before I decided I would put pearls down the centre of the butterfly to bling it up so you will have to use your imagination for this one...sry.

All products are SU, except the pennies,  and the colour combo is Rose Red and Crumb Cake,  the paper is from Springtime Vintage that is currently in the mini catalogue.  The background on the top of the card is from the set and stamped in Crumb Cake onto the same colour card stock for a more subtle effect. 

If you would like to order this set and do a bit for cancer research please contact me and I'll be happy to order it for you.

Thanks again for stopping by, I'll be back again soon with another project from this set.
