Ronald McDonald House Charities CTC#103

You may have come here from Kelly Kent's blog or perhaps you have started the blog here, but either way, make sure you use the links at the end to hop on over to the next blog until you have gone full-circle. This week at CASE-ing The Catty we are CASE-ing the Ronald McDonald House Charities stamps, My Hero, on the inside back cover of the back cover (page 209). Did you know that $3 of every set you purchase is donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities? Stampin' Up! and their demonstrators support the charity in other practical ways too.
Many make cards which are then available for guests at Ronald McDonald House to use, since it is often difficult to go shopping while you are supporting a sick child.
I was inspired by the splashes of Melon Mambo, and the writing on the heart and umbrella, so picked Peaceful Pines, the only current stamp I own that shares that feature, it has two trees with writing on them.
The Fancy Frost white embossed 12" X 12 " paper in the Holiday catalogue has some lovely patterns, and this starry one was perfect for my project. Because you can never have enough bling. I studded it with rhinestones!
There are also the two supporting trees in Blushing Bride and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

Next I was inspired to make a child's birthday card using a retired hostess stamp Silhouettes & Script. My daughters-in-law are always needing birthday cards for the myriad of parties my grandchildren attend. They certainly all lead very active social lives, but I love to help out with a bunch of cards from time to time.

The confetti comes from Party With Cake, as does the greeting next to the hat on the inside. Again, all inspired by the script on the images in the My Hero stamp set.

Come back tomorrow and I'll share CASE-ing The Catty Crew catching up in Brisbane last week.

 Cheers, Rachel

Now head on over to Krissy Buck

  1. I love the trio of trees and especially the glimmer ones. What a gorgeous Christmas card. And those party hats are soo perfect for kids. Clever you and wonderful grandmother too!

  2. So clever Rachael! I love how you've thought through the elements of the original sample and then made it into your own creation!!! Kelly x
