Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge DT & a plea for Billie Butterfly.

Phew I made it to the weekend. The days in between just seem to get harder, but it's always a pleasure to create for Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge & this week we have another fab theme for you,


This little Belles & Whistles cutie is coloured with Distress Inks & I used ages old MME Wild Asparagus papers. The flowers were created with a Tim Holtz die & the leaves made with A Doo Hickey & McGill punch. I'm into photo corners too just now & used a Martha Stewart punch for mine.

I hope you'll check out the fab inspiration of my fellow D-Teamies on the Secret Crafter's Blog. This week we are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique, who are offering our winner 3 digi stamps

I am also entering this at Papertake Weekly, where the theme is also ' In the Garden'.

At this month's Bunny Zoes challenge, 'Anything Goes'.

I hope you are still with me as I want to make plea for your help & support. Tomorrow I am running the Manchester 10K to raise money for Brain Tumour UK. I've been inspired by the story of Billie Bainbridge, the gorgeous 5 year old niece of a good friend of ours.

She suffers from an inoperable brain tumour. You can read more about the story of this beautiful & brave little girl here.

Brain Tumour UK work to provide support for sufferers & their families, fund vital research into finding an effective treatment & raise awareness.

I am not a natural runner & it would be a massive boost to know that anyone out there is supporting me with a donation as I pound the streets. More importantly this charity does important work & perhaps gets overshadowed by bigger & more popular charities, so any money you can spare would be most gratefully received. Please donate, whatever you can via Billie's blog or at Brain Tumour UK.

Thank you so much for reading this & for any kind of your support you can offer. I really appreciate it.

Big Hugs to one & all.
Andie xx
