CTC103 Giving Back with each purchase

You can find the full crew here

Hi and welcome from Krissy's blog . This week we are all about CASEing the Ronald McDonald Charity set on the inside of the back cover.  Stamping' Up donates $3 to Ronald McDonald charities from each set purchased. Demonstrators also donate cards to the charity for residents to use. It's nice to know you can give back.

I don't own the set, and I have never taken too much notice of the cards in that section but when I looked again I was presently surprised! Gotta love a catalogue that keeps on giving!

I have made 2 sets of little 3x3 notecards inspired by their little card. How cute is that toothpick! In fact finding some was a tough job around here, luckily there were some in the picnic basket!

So taking my lead from their card I looked through my sets to find a shape in some of the sets I already own that has a sentiment in the shape and is small enough. I found a few and settled on the bright and happy star from Confetti Celebrations, and the love heart from Scenic Sayings

So two boys/two girls cards  in the sets and a sentiment which could be birthday or could be adapted for a few occasions.

I used the sentiments from the set Sitting There - which is one of those sets I haven't used nearly enough! The inside of these cards is blank, and I have used a mix of Navy and Gold Baker's Twine.
The background paper is from the By the Shore set. 
Sweet and simple and quick to make - even with a little bit of fussy cutting.

thanks for looking today, don't forget we love to see what you create too. Join us won't you?

next on the hop today is the talented Deb Speijers
