Mellow Yellow! /Children in need!

Hi everyone - thanks to all those who joined us last week for Katharina's sketch - there were some really lovely cards!
This weeks challenge is a charity one! Quick Cards made easy magazine are trying to break the record for the worlds biggest handmade card, for BBC Children in Need.
You're able to use any products/materials you like but the finished card needs to be yellow!! The preferred size for the card is a standard A6 (approx 4x6 in).
All cards will be put together to form a giant Pudsey Bear card!
We'd love to help support this charity and I'd like to ask everyone who joins in with this weeks challenge if they would kindly, like to send their cards in!?
Of course you don't have to and you can join in in the usual way but it would be lovely for PTW to be able to send off some cards to add to the total!
For each different person who sends a card (or cards!) to me (to send on from PTW!)within the next 2 weeks, I will make a donation of 25p!
If you'd like to join in with this, please send them to me:

Stephanie Mayne, 20 Mant Road, Petworth, West Sussex, GU28 0EH, UK

I will add a list of names as and when (and if lol!) I receive cards!
Alternatively, if you would like to send the card(s) and/or a donation directly to Quick Cards you can send them here:

Quick Cards Big Card, Origin Publishing, 9th Floor, Tower House, Fairfax Street, Bristol, BS1 3BN.
Please make any cheques payable to BBC Children in Need appeal.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

For anyone who would like to know more about the charity - you can view the website here.
We do of course have some inspiration from the DT.







Please remember to make them

all yellow

if you're sending them for the Big Card Challenge! Thank you!!

P.S. If you could please include a scrap of paper with your name and blog address that would be great! (Just so as I can upload the details to the cards received section a wee bit quicker lol!!!) Thanks so much for your help! x
