Newton's Law cards for Great Ormond Street

Whilst visiting my friend Becky's blog a few days ago, in one of her posts she mentioned Kate who is setting up a scheme to send cards to the children at Great Ormond Street to give to the nurses who care for them or family and friends that visit them while they are in hospital, more details here.
I thought this was a lovely idea and knew straight away that I would like to take part. This morning I got out the sheet of Newton's Law stickers that came free with last months Quick Cards Made Easy magazine and set myself a challenge to use them all! I think I made my first 3 cards in half an hour, they really were 'quick cards made easy!' I didn't want the cards to all look the same, so set out to make them all different, although I've used the same papers/embellisments I achieved what I had set out to do!
Here they are :
I want to make smaller cards to go with these for the actual child (you are not required to do this, just write a little note if you wish, but I thought it would be nice for them to receive a card to!)

I just wanted to share a picture with you that my eldest daughter Lillie (5) coloured (although not her best colouring by any means)
I thought it was so amuzing when I looked at it, they must have been doing speach bubbles at school!! (It reads 'I love you' if it's not that clear!)

Oh wow Joanne! They are such gorgeous cards using the free stickers!! I love them all!! I'm so glad you've been able to make some cards for the appeal!!
And as for your daughter's colouring I think it's fab! You should see Dylan's attempts at colouring, let's just say I don't think art will be his specialised subject lol!!
love Becky xx

They are all lovely cards and such a nice idea. I will certainly look at the details of this and make some cards as well.

Your daughter's colouring is great and I love the little speech bubble.
