Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge DT Card

For Caitlin
Now over at Stampin' for the Weekend we have a very special Challenge this week... it has been chosen by my fabulous Teamie, Kate . The theme for this challenge is

‘Card/project to make someone smile or cheer them up’.
and there is a second part to this challenge and it’s one that I really hope you’d all like to take part in, though just to clarify, this second part is optional. We’d like to see you send your card/project to one of the children featured on the Post Pals website. Even better, make your card specifically with that child in mind.
Please log on to and have a look around the site.

Post Pals is an organisation that was set up to create smiles for children who suffer from life threatening and long term illnesses. We ask people to log on to send the children featured on the website ‘happy post’. When a child is very ill, often a visit from the postman can make their day. A cheery card or letter can make them feel less alone and bring welcome distraction from what they go through each day.
To send your card/project card to a Pal and brighten their day, please follow the 5 easy steps on the home page. We ask that you choose a Pal on the website and make a card for them. Please post a photo to your blog of the card and say which pal it’s for then link us to it. Here is the most important bit though… please then post the card to the address on your chosen child’s page.
We have a fab sponsor for this challenge and its Whiff of Joy stamps.

WOJ are kindly donating the 2 stamps below from the 'Happy Mail' collection

So we hope you will join us and make someone smile.

Hi All...almost at the end of the alphabet over at ABC and this week our letter is

U for unused stash.

Which I'm sure we all have not that we would admit!!.. I certainly do...I have an addiction to DP have to buy every new one that comes out and of course they get forgotten!!!...anyway the one I found lurking was a K & Co...(oh the shame) I used this with a cute manga girl which again has been unloved :-( lol...
I cut out some butterflies from the DP to embellish....I hope you like...

We are sponsored kindly again this week by

Whimsey Stamps

who are offering a wonderful $15 gift certificate so I hope you will join us this week.
Hope you all are having a good week!!

Sunflower Tilda....and friends......

Hi Guys...just thought I would share some cards today..I'm not working again (!!!) so I now have more time to play (yippee)...I'm trying to get a small website set up to maybe sell my cards..I usually sell them on ebay but the fees are getting silly so I thought I would try it this way.. I know it will be hit and miss as there are so many out there but I'm having a go..nothing ventured etc.,.so I've been making cards and toppers like a maniac this week..but the pile never seems enough so I have postponed 'launch day' until here is a few I've been working on

I made easel cards as I think they look extra
Anyway..I hope you have a good Wednesday..and I'll be back with a ABC Challenge DT Card....

The Dp's are Basic Grey...Tilda of course..and lots of bling for raindrops...
Have a happy Saturday!!!

At last a challenge card....

Hi guys..its seem ages since I entered a challenge and over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge they have a super recipe one - 3 embellishments 2 papers and 1 image..and I thought this darling Tilda was just the thing....

...I used this Tilda as she hasnt been out much...she was one of the first I bought and has been overlooked..poor anyway..she's coloured with the usual polychromos and the DP's are from a Forever Friends pad and a scrap of gingham.. my embellishments are flowers, ribbon and card candy...I'll be back later with another...I hope!!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
