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.

Love and Lace

Well it seems our recycling challenge was a challenge too far for most of you as our entries were the lowest ever - sorry :(    Hopefully you'll find our new challenge as little easier to play along with.  This month we're bringing out our romantic sides, not just for valentines, but any romantic occasion - anniversaries, weddings, engagements to just a card to let them know you love them - we want to see the theme of love with the addition of a little lace for a romantic finish.

Our prize this month is this fabulous set of 3 stamps from La Blance which would make great images or backgrounds as they are lovely big stamps.  They have been kindly donated by Sasha who won our challenge in December is back this month to Guest DT with us.  Thanks Sasha - it's great to have you with us :-)

So - how about a little inspiration from the Design Team?  We have some cracking cards for you this month - do stop by our personal blogs for more details and to leave us a little love - we do so enjoy your visits!
