Happiness is owning an adorable stamp set that works for kids as well as adults, covers a variety of occasions AND promises a donation to a good cause.  For every Moving Forward stamp set sold, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 toward the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Bravo!

I used this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO247) as the foundation of today’s card.


  • The tricycle, stamped in Early Espresso, fit’s neatly inside the circle created with my 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.
