Totally Papercrafts Challenge #17 and Charity Blog Candy News

Good Morning

Ooohhhh it's absolutely gorgeous outside and it's set to get warmer over the weekend, dare I mention the BBQ  But it is definate Strawberry Daiquiri's weather which will give you a slight clue to this weeks challenge for you over at Totally Papercrafts.

Thank you to everyone who entered last weeks Wedding/Anniversary challenge, so many wonderful pieces of work, this week your host is the lovely Lols and her challenge for you is a photo inspiration one...

Now don't you think that screams summer and even Wimbledon, such a delish image.

We welcome back Ellie from Digital Stamp Oasis as our sponsor for the challenge, the lucky winner will get to choose 3 images of their choice from Elllie's Esty Store.  Ellie has also joined us as our guest designer for this week, so be sure to check out her's and all the other wonderful work from my DT buddies to see how this photo inspired them.  Here's mine...

I just had to use this fella for my card he is, 'Sammy Squirrel Eats Strawberries' and is one of Ellie's images which is available from the Digital Stamp Oasis Etsy Store.


Digi Image - Details above

Papers - My Minds Eye and Papermania

Colouring Mediums - Watercolour Pencils with Sansodor, Copics and Promarkers.

Sentiment - Done on PC

Embellishments - Flowers, Charm & Chain and Card Candy all from stash


I used watercolour pencils blended with sansodor to colour Sammy's body and Copics & Promarkers for all other areas.



Crafty Emma is still doing an amazing job at raising money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, and she now has running an awesome blog candy full of yummy prizes, but this time round to enter you need to donate at least £1 to the YAA using Emma's 'Just Giving' page.  I have mentioned this before but sorry I'm gonna mention it again the YAA need to raise £7,200 A DAY to keep both helicopters and the air ambulance staff running, they don't get any government funding.  These guys do an amazing job and save so many life's.  Why not nip over to Annie's blog Annie's Antics and read the story of her husband who was in an horrific accident about 9 months ago, and if it wasn't for the YAA he may not of been here now.
So if you would like to help Emma with her fundraising in memory of her dad 'Ronnie' then please go visit her BLOG for full details. EVERY £1 MAKES A DIFFERENCE!!!


I hope you are all enjoying some glorious weather and have a fabulous day!!

Your card reminds me of the squirrel I caught pinching the strawberries from my garden last year! However, I like your card so much more than I liked that squirrel!

Just the perfect time for strawberries now the sun is out!
