Sharing Sweet Thoughts - Ronald McDonald House Charities blog hop from the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team

Hello friends, and welcome back to another Artisan Design Team blog hop!  We are the official design team of Stampin' Up!, and we hop every two weeks to share a product feature with you.  If you're not starting here, you've come from Rochelle Blok in Australia; you're currently here with me, Shannon Lane, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and you'll be moving onto Sylwia Schreck in Germany shortly!  

Today's product feature is a stamp set called Sharing Sweet Thoughts.  This set is a special one - each year, Stampin' Up! has a charity stamp set, wherein each set purchased includes a $3 donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  To date, Stampin' Up! has donated over $1.5 MILLION to RMHC, an incredibly worthy cause.  We have had family members on both sides stay in their local Ronald McDonald House while their newborn babies were in the hospital receiving life-saving surgeries and medical care far from home, and they will attest that their services are truly amazing; it really is a home away from home for families who need to be close to their children during extremely difficult and stressful times.  It's a very worth charity and one of our personal favourites! 

This beautiful stamp set features on-trend mason jars, so I wanted to stick with the theme and create a tag for a jam jar.  If you're a gardener and a canner, 'tis the season for packing up your bounty!  I barely harvest enough from my little garden to gift with others, but when I do, I love putting a homemade tag on it.  Sharing Sweet Thoughts is perfect for this!

This tag is a little bit rustic and a little bit country - I love the contrast of the bright, fresh strawberries with the natural woodgrain paper.  And with mason jars, it's super easy to cut a circle to size and slip a coordinating piece of paper in the lid!

Now let's hop over to Sylwia and see what beautiful creation she's sharing today!  

But wait!
