Fundraising for Lyndall


My dear friend Cheryl has one of the biggest hearts I know - she is calling for help for a fellow crafter in need. This ability to help others through our blogs is one of the things I love the most about blogland and the people here. You can read Lyndall's story HERE on Cheryl's blog and learn more about how we can all get behind Lyndall. Not only are there gorgeous digis for sale in a specially created store HERE - with all proceeds going to Lyndall and her family to help with her battle, but there's also a benefit night being arranged.

My card has been made using one of the digis available - this one is called Model and this image and some fabulous sentiments like the one I used were kindly donated by Bizzy Becs.

If you can't make the benefit night there are so many ways you can be a part of this. You can send Lyndall a card of support, buy some of the gorgeous digis available or donate something for the benefit. I have finally found a use for this single bed quilt I began some time ago and never quite got finished. I am in the middle of binding it and it will be part of the donations for the benefit.

I hope to inspire some of you to help out too - big or small every little bit helps!


Extra copics used....Skintones - R20, R11, E08, E00, E000
Ciaos on picture - R37, R35, R32, E51.
And the reason my Y000 has a number blacked out - I bought a second Y0000 pen by mistake and a Y000 refill - so when my lighter ink ran out I topped it up with the darker ink and changed the code on the pen!
