The other DT members have also got other cards to show you so pop by and see what little beauties they've come up with. The links are in my sidebar.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend whatever you're doing xx

Benny Bumblethorpe

Firstly, just to say thank you to everyone who has donated to the Help for Katie fundraising campagin. The response has been amazing.

Now on to a lighter note. I needed a card for a painter and decorator and thought this image from Just Inklined fitted the bill perfectly. You can purchase Benny here.

As per usual, I forgot to write the Promarker colours down, but I do know I used Burnt Orange, Pumpkin and Amber for the paint!!!

Have a nice day whatever you're doing xx

Help for Katie

Today my post is about a fellow crafter who needs our help

Katie Renz is married to Kevin and they have 3 beautiful little boys. Just before Christmas Katie had the devastating news that she had stage 4 Stomach Cancer and is currently undergoing Chemotherapy which sadly is her only option. Katie is a crafter and well known throughout the crafting community, and you can read her story here on her own blog.

Jak from Jak Heath Designs is holding a month long fundraiser for Katie to help with her treatment. If you donate just £15.00 you will receive a package of FABULOUS images by a variety of generous designers which are worth well over that amount.
There will also be a drawing for 2 great prizes
* Letraset have donated a full set of 148 markers over £200 (~US$310) in value.
* Paper Temptress has donated 5 Silver Lustre Packages and 1x $25 Gift Voucher

Every time a donation is made they will be entered into a draw for the prizes from Letraset and Paper Temptress, if you donate twice you will get 2 chances to win one of the prizes.
The draw for the prizes will be made on February the 10th

You will receive specially designed images from all of these for your donation.

Below are two cards I have made with two of the donated images. The shoe and backing paper is from Jak at Jak Heath Designs, and the Magnolia is from Just Inklined. The other members of the Just Inklined design team will be posting their samples throughout the day so be sure to visit Mina, Debbie, Cathy, Jeni, Lydia, Joyce, Peri and Toni and let's try and make the days ahead a little easier for Katie and her family.

For more details on how you can get these beautiful images and donate to the Help for Katie fund, please visit Jak's blog.

Thank You xx

My 2010 favourites

I've been busy making wedding stationery for someone I know and as the big day isn't until May I can't show them on here until all the invitations have been sent out. So as I've nothing new to show you at the moment I thought I'd do what a lot of people have done and post my favourite cards from 2010.












Can I just take this opportunity to thank everyone for following my blog and especially the lovely people who leave me comments. It's really appreciated and makes it all worthwhile.
Wishing you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year xxx
