St Lukes Charity Challenge Lets hear it for the Boys

Hello All

St Luke's is a hospice which cares for people aged 18 and above throughout Sheffield who have incurable illnesses. Their aim is always to control the patients symptoms, alleviate pain, and give them the best possible quality of life – all free of charge. It costs £6 million per annum to keep St Luke's open, and government funding, via NHS trusts only provides one third of the funds required, which means the Hospice has to raise a staggering £4 million each year to provide this vital end-of-life care.

This challenge was set up by a St Luke's Supporter who has seen first hand, the amazing care given to patients through St Luke's. The aim is to promote the good work of the charity, provide a fun and welcoming challenge community in which card makers and crafters can come back month after month to play in our challenges, and by sending their cards to the charity, provide a little something to help them keep their doors open.

So, if you feeling creative and want to play along with us, please do - no matter what your age or ability, all are welcome, and if you can "spare" the card you make too, then all the better :-) THANK YOU!

I have copied the info as it is worded better than i could ever put please join in for this very worthwhile cause..PLEASE!!!!!.
My card for St Lukes is a Birthday card for my Brother who is 70 years young tomorrow...and does`nt look a day over 55 Lol....

Sorry I fell really behind with comments this month as October has been very hectic for me. This is a simply stunning Sylvie - love the paper tearing and how you've used the lettering - really gorgeous.
Thanks so much for your tireless support of our challenge - I really do appreciate it :-D
