Anyway enough waffle here is the final challenge card for today. This card is inspired by many challenges (listed below) in particular Stampin Sisters of Christ and not a challenge but a fundraiser to help raise funds to find a vaccine for Meningitis, this has come about by the loss of Layton John Clever a 16 month old baby boy, whom lost his fight recently against this terrible disease. You can read more about it here. Mo and Jim Harker have both donated a digital image to help raise funds which cost 4 GBP, I have used Jim Harkers image below, sorry ran out of time to display Mo's but please visit my lovely friend Debbie P she has made a fantastic job of using both images a created two beautiful cards. These images are available for purchase here. Thank you to Mo and Jim!
Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge #12 - to make a patriotic themed card for a soldier and as a bonus donate to Operation Write Home more details here. Unfortunately this card is slightly too big need to be 5.5" x 4.25" but didn't look right (will make a smaller one and the Kindiglitz didn' flake). I created the card in the earlier post with this in mind and am going to send it along with some more I hope to get made tomorrow.
Down to the card, just love making these shaker cards, not the neatest about but, I am improving!! Sorry for the bad pictures but took tonight I ran out of daylight, can you believe it! I just had to try and show you it was Purple not Blue! I have versamarked my SU snowflake stamp then embossed with white powder (looks better for real).
Have used Kindyglitz for effect, coloured using my touchmarkers and SU markers, I am so loving my new markers I have four Copics now! The effect is spoilt a little by the fun flock.

Rosanna wasn't so sure if the colouring was right for a childs card, so will try and make another for this challenge, as I wasn't too sure on the image but I do just adore snowmen as do children and thought they would love a shaker card. Do think he is kinda cute in his part uniform, so like men in uniform, so smart and proud looking, know what I mean or am I on my own here.
Phew thats the end, at the of Tom and Jerry it used to say "That's all Folks". He He
