Layton John Clever and Nine Challenges

Hi all again, yes this is my last post for today, had hoped to have it done sooner, but you know what it is like ladies, go pick up a child, hubby comes home from work and everyone wants feeding, so we had a lovely family meal, then we had lovely talks with friends from overseas in particular our friends that are coming for a holiday on the 10th Dec.

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.

Challenges


K L Stampin N Scrapin - Snowflakes


Friday Sketches #78 - sketch to the right


Tuesday Taggers - No Patterned Paper


Allsorts Week 27 - for a child - card, gift, notebook, anything

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

Many thanks for looking, happy crafting, enjoy the rest of your weekend, take careX:)
