I NEVER MADE IT WITH THE SKETCH , can i be so ..........., LOL, so off i went and did another card, this time i made sure it was done correct...............dumfkoppen, still laughing at myself!!!!!
I used the image 'Flissy Fairy' by Helen from Ellephantastic , you can find her group HERE , it was part of the challenges of the previous round on CDAC , firstly i love the image, secondly we have to use either a fairy/angel or butterfly , cause.................. i am also entering it in the 'Flutter By Wednesday'

Pay It Forward!!!

I came across this post about Pay It Forward at Kurly-Q and i so love doing this, so here are the deets to play with:::

"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

"I promise to send an original creation to the 1st 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this, and send something they make to the 1st 5 people who comment on their status."

Here's what you need to do:

1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 commenters.

2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.

3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 commenters.

4. It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.

Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

Do join me, it is so much fun spreading some love around!!!

Please Help The 3 Families In Need, After The Recent Tornadoes!!
Hello everyone, I hope your’e doing well! I would like you all to please read this post. It’s about three families in Alabama in America, that is devastated by the recent tornadoes which blew through the South Wednesday night. These are exemplary, faithful, Christian families who now even in their loss are responding with faith and confidence in the Lord. They need help. Currently, there are more than a hundred people physically assisting them on the ground. Now they need the funds to begin the process of rebuilding. In some cases, with only the clothes on their backs, they will be starting over and need cash for shoes, food, temporary housing, immediate medical bills and basic needs.

The Crawford Family of nine children’s (youngest is 3 weeks old) house is flat to the ground. Their home was completely destroyed, as well as all their earthly possessions, their vehicles and all of Aaron's construction tools which is his source of livelihood.

The Lee Family of 13 children had an even bigger loss, when the father, Tom Lee died heroically protecting his family as their home collapsed around them. In God's Mercy his wife and thirteen children survived after many hours of being trapped under rubble. Daughters Tiffany and Emily are in the hospital and suffered potentially severe nerve damage. Their insurance does not cover these medical bills, their father is dead, and their home and possessions are gone.

Gary and Jane Boyd and their nine children survived without injury but their home was severely damaged by trees falling on it. Their home was the rendezvous point for the Lee and Crawford families in the hours following the tornado since it was the only one left standing.
These are families that desperately need your prayers, continuing support and donations.
Since I was little I always keep a 10th of my pocket money aside as “Jesus Money” and then the Lord will show me or my parents to whom we should give this money to - someone in need. For about a year now the Lord hasn’t showed me and it kept accumulating, but I didn’t just give it to any one. When I saw what happened to these three families I knew why the Lord didn’t show anyone for about a year. I had to save it for these families!!
So I have R300 / $46.5 and I’m giving all of it to these three families!
Will you please prayerfully consider financial help to these families too.
Peter Bradrick has set up a website called Help Hurting Families in Alabama who took the time to create these videos and are also accepting donations for these families above. You may visit their site to give a helping hand to these families.
Have a Blessed week!

So , just click on 'Heidi's Blog' ad it will take you to the original post!!

Have a lovely day everybody and be Blessed!!!
