Mad for Markers Flood appeal, Fundraising for Katie and a card for Braydin

Hi all, first sorry been not been around, had some computer troubles, been busy working in the garden and when I came to catch up on blogging Sunday night, internet on a go slow, found out yesterday we had gone over the 25KB, never done that before!  So upgraded as couldn't wait till the 23rd lol!  So should be round catching up on blogging very soon.

Decided to combine this post with a few items that I have come accross in the blogging world, which I am hoping some of you might be able to help with one of them. 

First continuing our 'Australia Day' Challenge over at our Mad for Markers Challenge Blog we would like you to use Australia Day Colours, this can be either RED, WHITE and BLUE   OR  YELLOW and GREEN and use one of these combinations on  your creation.

This week I have used  YELLOW and GREEN and used this beautiful image by Ink Inklined donated to the fundraising package for Katie.  Kept this card fairly simple as the image was beautiful on its own.  Just added a few butterflies, which have been kindlyglitzed and some pearls using my pearl pen.



A little about Katie

Katie Emmerson Renz married to Kevin with 3 beautiful boys the twins Nate & Will aged 5 and Hunter aged 10 had some news just before Christmas that has rocked their world as they know it.
Katie has been diagnosed with stage 4 Stomach Cancer and is currently undergoing her only option which is Chemotherapy.

 Full details found over on Jak Heath's blog.




This post I found on the Mad for Markers Blog Rising Water Flood Appeal and Sammi is giving a gift of copics to a random person who supports the appeal.  Sammi found this appeal over on Sharryn's blog 'Rising Waters Flood Appeal for Crafters, more details over there.

Lastly my blogging buddy Sara has asked for crafters to send a card to Braydin Resch, to keep putting a smile on this little boys face, he had an accident and faces a year of therapy to learn to walk again full details on Sara's blog
