Share Sunshine 100% can go to WHO

Here's a way to give back:
The Share Sunshine download is available, now, and 100% of the Share Sunshine PDF Download proceeds will go to COVID-19 efforts through these organizations:
  • The World Health Organization’s COVID-Solidarity Response Fund
  • United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund
You can choose who you want the funds to go to before you checkout.  This is pretty easy and then the PDF lives on your computer.  You would want access to a color printer to get the beautiful colors.  I plan on using white cardstock.

This digital stamp set is packed with both lighthearted and thoughtful sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we are currently in. You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards!
As part of Stampin’ Up!’s Making a Difference program, 100% of the Share Sunshine PDF Download proceeds will go to COVID-19 efforts through these organizations:
  • The World Health Organization’s COVID-Solidarity Response Fund
  • United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund
Help us make a difference today!
The download will be charged in US dollars; your financial institution will convert the charge into your currency based on current exchange rates.

I would love to see what you come up with.

Time for sharing

April has proven to be a very busy month.  Spring Break was lovely, but this remote learning thing is
rough on everyone.  I love how understanding my staff has been at the speed at which I get back to everyone's tech. needs.  I fall asleep, right away every night.  Exhausted.

We just recently had a  card challenge with my girls and here are some of the beautiful cards that came from that.  I am making an attempt to mail something out every day.  I certainly have plenty of cards to do that.
Love this cute fold:
 There's a perfect place for a message on the white space on other side and it won't be seen until the card is opened.  Love the paper- Stanpin' Up!

This was my contribution- Smile-  I thought this was a perfect card to send out, now.  Everyone could use a reminder to smile.  Great use of the oval within another oval to create a frame.

I will be happy to share my Smile card tutorial in a future post.

Until then...
