Ronnie Relaxing Special Fundraising Challenge :-)



Paula from Pollycraft made this image especially for her DT member Emma, aka Crafty Emma as a fundraising image to be sold to raise much needed funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance service :-) Not surprisingly the image is selling like hot cakes, how cute is this :-)

You can see more details on Emma's blog but she has challenged us all to make cards using this image to be in with a chance of some fabulous prizes :-) Heidi from Simon Says Stamp has donated a fabulous prize and there are several other prizes on offer too :-) You can buy the image on Emma's own blog or the Pollycraft site :-)



For my card I followed Carole's fabulous sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge :-) I coloured the image with copics and paper pieced the armchair (thanks for the tip Caroline :-)) I have just realised when I went to get the link that our cards are uncannily similar !! I also used a little crackle glaze on the cup. The papers are My Mind's Eye Bella Bella paper pack and SU Close to Cocoa card for layering. the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set and I thought it was just perfect with this image :-) The little bone button was in a button pack which Jo Boots sent to me a while ago :-) Thanks Jo xx



I have linked my fortnightly candy sponsored by Simon Says Stamp to Emma's Challenge so if you enter you would get an extra chance of winning a cute HM stamp too :-) You can see the HM candy at the top of my blog :-)

I am also entering this into the
Stamp With Fun Challenge Animals
Sew Many Challenges ,,,,,, Anything Goes :-)

I hope you will all join in :-) If you would like to make a donation too you can do that on Emma's blog ,,, every little helps !!
