A Card For Winnie :-)

Good Morning all :-) I am here today to share an appeal on BBC Radio Sheffield, more details below.

I used Hero Arts Soft Blossom Ink and Flourish Cling Stamp for the background. or the main panel I splattered and spritzed with  Gold Shimmer Spritz and Blush Spritz. I will link all the products in the inlinkz at the bottom of this post.

I thought that such a special occasion deserved a special custom envelope too ;-) 

This is 99 year old Winnie.

She was born in Sheffield, and has lived in the city her whole life.
It's her 100th birthday at the end of May, but she has no family at all and not much contact with the outside world, apart from her carers.
We'd love to make her landmark birthday really special - can you help?
To start with, we'd like to get Winnie some birthday cards and letters to open on her big day.
