What is St Luke's Hospice?

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 and whilst donations are now closed we would like to thank all our donators for their wonderful contributions.

Buffet Winners

Good afternoon ladies

Sorry we've been a while making our decision on a winner this month but there was a very close tie for first place so it went back out to a second vote and I am now thrilled to announce that our top card for last month and therefore the winner of the gorgeous stamp set from Waltzingmouse was VAL with this gorgeous white on white wedding card

I'll be dropping you an email shortly Val with your winners badge and to get your snail mail so I can post off your prize.

Our top 5 for this month who will also be receiving their winners badge by email shortly were:

Gibsmiss - we loved your delicate frame cut out and subtle colours

Irene - we loved your white on white card and pretty little flower cut outs

Jacqueline - we loved the strong geometry on your card and of course the cute owl ;-)

 Mary J - we loved all of your entries Mary but the gorgeous image on this one won us over

Nicki LT - we loved your cute image and the co-ordinating colours and snowflakes

Thanks again for your continued support and for making our little challenge such a fun place to play along :-)

Speaking of which - don't forget that this month we want to see your guy cards - any style, any theme - just something you could send to a fella - here's another one of mine for a little inspiration if you're struggling to get your creative juices flowing:

I'll be back with more ideas from me and the design team next week for our mid-month inspiration spot.  We have such an amazing prize from the generous ladies at Craftie Charlie this month that you really don't want to miss out on the chance to win it!
