A wonderful effort!

Just yesterday we were given the news of the final result of the fundraising effort for the family of Dave Abbott. For those of you unfamiliar with the whole story, check it out here. Well the FANTASTIC news is that Stampin' Up! demonstrators across the world sold a grand total of 7538 All in the Family stamp sets with EVERY SINGLE CENT going to Dave's wife and children. What a wonderful effort and a wonderful company to give us the opportunity to make this contribution to Dave's lovely family. While no dollar amount could ever replace a husband and father, hopefully it may reduce some of the stresses that no doubt arise at such a sad time.

I have a couple more projects to share using this sweet little set. The first one was during my pigtail girl phase when I was trying out the different things you could do with the little people! While it is in no way as imaginative as 'golf dude', I thought it would be cute, and so I bring you 'cartwheeling pigtail girl'!!

She is stamped in Staz On onto watercolour paper and coloured using an aquapainter and ink from the lids of the ink pads. The background piece of Gable Green is stamped with the 3 flower stamp from the Level 2 hostess set "Love It" using Versamark, then brushed with Gable Green stampin' pastel to bring the colour out a bit more. The circular greeting is from the Level 1 hostess set "Riveting".

This next one is a 'bloke-ified' version of the second card in this post. I kept the design the same, just changing the design of the paper, the ribbon, the colours and the shape of the metal edged tag:

Colours here are Cranberry Crisp and Buckaroo Blue. The DP is from the Treehouse pack and the ribbons from the Prep School pack of Ribbon Originals.

I would just like to say thank you to all of you who bought these stamps from me and also to all of you who bought them at all. You have all been part of making a difference in the lives of some people who I'm sure are very appreciative of the caring you have shown.
