Farewell to Moving Forward — FMS86

Well, it’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for another challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.   And this week I am the hostess, which means I had to come up with the sketch.  This is my first time to do this, so I hope you like it and that you will play along with us.

I decided to use the current Ronald McDonald House set, called Moving Forward.  Every year, Stampin’ Up! designs a stamp set and donates a portion of the proceeds ($3 for every set this year) to the Ronald McDonald House charity.  This year’s set is one of my very favorites that they’ve had, and I will miss it.

Warning:  The following card may require sunglasses to view!  🙂

I’ve been making so many Fall/Christmas/Halloween cards lately that the colors in this card seem so bright to me, and I love these colors.  I chose these colors because I wanted to play along with the color challenge at The Color Throwdown site.  I just found this site, and I was amazed that this is challenge #213.  How have I missed it that long?

Since I also wanted to play along with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, I decided to combine the two challenges.

Well, we’ve made it to Friday.  Enjoy your day!  Thanks for stopping by!

I Just Love this Bicycle

Stampin’ Up!  donates time and money to support Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Each year Stampin’ Up! donates a portion of their proceeds from a designated stamp set to the charity.  This year’s set is called Moving Forward, and Stampin’ Up! donates $3 with each purchase of this set.  I love it that Stampin’ Up! does this!  And this year’s set is the cutest one yet!
