MS Cake Break-Free as a bird

On Friday afternoon I hosted an MS 'Cake Break' to raise funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society......tea,coffee and unlimited cakes......for a donation.....it all went well......everybody enjoyed a couple of hours of drinking,eating and chatting.......and we raised £102 for the charity.
4 of my neighbours.......who were unable to come along.......popped donations through my door....and I wanted to make some quick cards to pop through their doors to thank them.
One of Jennifer's challenges last weekend was to be 'as free as a bird' and
'Experiment on your next project by doing something you would normally steer clear of in case it ‘spoils’ everything'
I always avoid stamping directly onto a card in case I ruin it......so decided to be very brave and do exactly that......4 little cards.....all very similar.....very quick to make.....and not ruined!!!!

WELL DONE on your fund raising and for posting it on National Baking Day too.

Love your cards too - it does take a bit of a deep breath to stamp directly on to a card ..... there's nowhere to hide is there? But just think, if you DO mess up you just convert it to a layered card - if it helps you to take the plunge!

Ooh, well done on the fundraising - all the cakes look delicious!

The cards look beautiful, definitely not spoiled - I hope you'll stamp on them more without fear! They are really pretty stamped flowers.

Thanks for entering my challenge! x

Well done with the fund raising and your cards are really lovely. I hate stamping straight onto a project, in fact I am not comfortable stamping at all.
