In my own words about Karen, met her through CDAC and blogland, she has been so strong in the midst of all the pain that she has to endure and not only that, she absolutely creates the most stunning cards, i know. I really admire her for her character, strenght, sincerity, always smiling and ability to make others smile!!!

Hello there,
How are ya all doing?? Hope it's good. Those living in UK, hugs my friends, hope it stops real soon, something like that is never nice!!

There has/have been a lot of pain and sadness in blogland lately, it brakes ones heart when you read about things like the story of Ryan.....
Here is a snippet extracted from Meredith's blog as background:::

My brother's dear friend and former roommate, Ryan, was involved in an accident on a Saturday afternoon in April 2011 in New Orleans, while riding his bike to meet up with friends. The facts of the accident remain unclear but Ryan did sustain a brain injury. As a side note - Ryan moved from CA to NOLA after Katrina to live there and help/work with the relief efforts to help the citizens of NOLA rebuild. Ya...he's an amazing young man.

So - what am I asking of you? I'm asking you to think of him, send blessings, prayers, white light, love and healing (however you manifest those thoughts and feelings) in the form of cards to send his way. Here is the post that his family put up:

Here is the link to the call for cards for Ryan.

I made this card for Ryan, now i know it may not trigger any memory, but it may bring a smile and i would love that!!
Image is by Digital Delights by Loobuy Loo and so cute, but not too cute to use for a man!!

Delightful Sketches is having a lovely challenge, gotta jump before i am too late, lol, just gotta use stitching!!!!
So i will enter the card for the challenge and then on it's merry way it be send to Ryan, safe trip.........:))
Pretty please have a look at the links and join me in sending some sunshine along.
Thanks for visiting, i really appreciate it and see ya now now...........hehehe

OK, OK, sorry, clean forgot, here is my card, put it down to age, ya think......:))

Hello all me loverlies,
Hope you are having a super week so far!!
Over here in South Africa, we have Womens Day today , 09/08/11, which means a public holiday, tho nearly over, but got some cards made, jippeeeeeeeee, got the lappie for a while, so let me get on with it, right...................hehehe

A Brand New and Gorjuss Challenge started over at CDAC called the -------

CDAC Progressive Challenges

It will be a 6 part challenge after which you will go into the drawing for this, wait for it..................LOL

Now on top of playing for such a delish challenge, you also get 6 free images to start off, the next will be e-mailed to you, and so on , and so on, hehehehehe

The 1st card i want to show you using the two images by Sandie Huggett, it so reminds me of my grandma's parlour where she had all this totally stunning pieces displayed!! The fuchia is really one of my most fav of flowers, their intricate and delicate structure is something to really appreciate. I kept embellies to the min, cause i want the focus on the images instead, with white as the basis color.

I used a base pre-folded card, added a doily, piece of brocade, one charm and off coarse, my fav, a few Cranberry Pearls from PIZZAZZ APLENTY , one shop you don't wanna miss!!!!
I colored with Copic's using :
G09, G94, Y02, Y38, R20, RV95, RV42 and V15.
