Sunday Sketch & Stamp 12: A Teddy for Paige

Click to enlarge image Morning folks!

Way-hay! It's Sunday and it's time for a brand new challenge over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp! This fortnight's challenge (#12) is a super-duper sketch by the wonderful and very talented Barb. If you join in with this challenge, then you will be entered into the prize draw to win a set of Alota Rubber Stamps!!

My card for this challenge has been made especially for a 13 year old girl named Paige Welch, who very recently was in a terrible boating accident. Erin (who is a fellow Whimsy Stamps DT member) is Paige's neighbour, and just a week ago Erin posted Paige's story on her blog here with a plea for people to make a card for Paige. Erin is offering up some yummy blog candy for those who make a card and mail it to her to give to Paige. In one short week, lots of stamp companies have got on board with this cause and have donated loads of stamps to Erin's candy to encourage us all to participate!

I have used the Whimsy digi stamp called 'A Teddy for Paige' for my card. This stamp was designed especially for this cause, and can be purchased immediately for download by clicking here. All proceeds from the sale of this digi stamp will go to Paige’s Account at Seacoast Credit Union in Exeter NH.

I thought it would be a good idea to combine a few challenges for this card so that this worthy cause can get some more exposure, so.......

... I'm going to enter this card into the following 3 challenges:

1. Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 79 Buzz Off! : Colour combo of Black and Yellow.

2. Simon Says Stamp Challenge - It's A Stitch Up! : To add stitching, whether it be be machine, hand or fake!

3. Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Challenge 20 Buttons, Buttons, Who's Got Buttons! : To use/add buttons.

4. Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Challenge 51 Animal Antics : To use animals in your projects.

Finally, you still have time to join in with the YOUR NEXT STAMP BLOG HOP (see my post here), but be quick, because it ends tonight!! It's fun, it's easy (all you have to do is leave a comment on all the DTs blog hop posts), and you could win the grand prize of $50 worth of YNS stamps of your choice!! Come on ... the YNS Starlets would love you to do the hop with us!!

Thanks, as always, for visiting peeps!

Big hugs to you all!
