Sketch N Stash DT & my Heartfelt Thanks

Good Morning! It's the start of a brand new week & a brand new challenge at Sketch N Stash! This time around, it's my gorgeous D-Teamie, Jen's turn to design the sketch.

I used another cute Wryn image from Tiddly Inks & coloured her with Prismas. The papers are MME - Wild Asparagus again. I added a charm onto the Divine Twine & created a flower of sorts from various dies & a ribbon flower. You can just see the Glossy Accents I added to the cherry to make it more shiny. Can't help thinking she needs a little something else though. I might revisit her with a little doodling around the edge of the image.

So here is Jen's fab sketch for your delectation

This week we have not one, but two wonderful sponsors. Dies To Die For are offering one winner a £10 voucher to spend at the store.

Mei Flower are giving our other winner a £20 voucher to spend there, WOW!

So I hope you'll pop on over to the Sketch N Stash blog to see the wonderful creations of my fellow D-Teamies.

I am also entering this at Totally Gorjuss, where the theme this week is 'Charmed'

Yesterday, I completed the Manchester 10K in a time of 1hour 17minutes & 22 seconds. That was over two minutes faster than last year so I was very pleased. I woke up this morning feeling pleasantly surprised at how little I ache, that was until I came down the stairs & discovered my knees are killing me!! Fortunately we've got lifts at work, so I might have to cheat for today!

I also want to thank those of you that gave me messages of support. It really helped motivate me to keep running around the course. Some of you very generously sponsored me too. I just can't thank you enough. I was running in aid of Brain Tumour UK who help fund research into Brain Tumours. They also offer support to families affected & work to raise awareness of this disease. As I said in my last post. I was inspired to run for Brain Tumour UK by the story of the neice of a good friend of ours.

Billie's brain tumour is inoperable & she has been receiving treatment, but her prognosis is not good. The bravery of this gorgeous little 5 year old girl is an inspiration to us all.

You can read more about her fight at her blog here & about the important work that Brain Tumour UK do here. If you can, please make a donation to help fund the research to find a cure. Thank You so much.

Well that's all from me for today.
Thanks so much for looking & listening!

Big Hugs,
Andie xx
