Supporting MS

A couple of months back I started selling my cards to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.  Last night I counted what I raised and I'm pleased to report a grand total of £60, so I'll get a cheque sent off for that amount in the next couple of days.

Today's card was made for a fellow MS fundraiser - a friend of a friend who is running 15k for the charity, and is also celebrating her 40th birthday this month.

As she is a runner, I thought the Saturated Canary charity stamp Boobie Love would be appropriate .(This image is Free if you don't already have her!)   The girl is in joggers and the ribbon coloured orange this time which is the MS charities colour.  Papers this time are Doodle bug.

Oh yeah, & there's another of them there flowers!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch 201 - This is becoming a regular challenge for me now - love your sketches guys!

Saturated Canary - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar - Step or Easel Card - Mine's an easel
Card Crafter's Circle - Die Cuts or Dry Embossing - Dry embossing for me
I Love Promarkers - Embossing
Allsorts - Something beginning with the first letter of your name - this was hard cause I don't know of any "J" embellishments so I went for J - jogger in her running kit instead!

PS Alan is back in Aberdeen all settled once more & the house is oh so empty!  Short term this time though, so I just have to keep reminding myself it will soon be June & hopefully he'll be back then assuming he can get a summer job locally.

I'm sure Alan's loving his new flat though and June's not that long away, Luv Sam x

This is a fabulous card Carole, lovely image and design. Well done on the amount raised. As a queried suffer of the disease I know the amount of testing and time it takes for diagnosis hence my queried, they can't be sure it is not my medication for my spinal damage that is causing the same symptoms lol. If not for people like you I am sure the diagnosis and treatment wouldn't be anywhere near as advanced as it is.
