Anything for a Child - Feeling Crafty CH#27 - April 2014

Afternoon my lovelies, cannot believe we are nearly at the end of the week again, where did the time go?  I have 2 off my grandson's coming to stay over Friday to Sunday, so hoping to get lots of work done today.

Today we see a new challenge at Feeling Crafty - CH#27 - Anything for a Child, as suggested by our fabulous Sponsor for the challenge, Kate I hope we see lots of entries.

Using Daisy Doodles - Ryan the Footballer
The papers were free ones in a Magazine many moons ago, so not sure which one it was.

Our DT have made fabulous cards for this challenge, would be great if you could pop over and give them some love.   We have a new DT member, Stephen Nicholls, as he was a GDT, last month, he was not able to join our DT CALL, (New DT will be announced ASAP, a huge thank you to everyone who took part), so he is on board as a DT from this month, hope you can share some love with him.

Also some Love for Emma, who is really struggling with her health, some prayers would be good, we so need her back at the Helm, until then you will have to put up with come on Love and Prayers, everyone.

Our Prize for this challenge has been given to us by the Super Talented and Generous, Kate Martin.

Fabulous Prize don't you agree, Thank you Kate.

Here is a short Bio, that Kate supplied us with:-

Since taking early retirement from the Civil Service  in December 2008, I decided that I would teach crafts from home as a way of part funding my hobby.
In August 2009, I decided that I would become an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, to further fund my ever increasing lust for quality crafting products
 - and haven’t looked back since!
I have become part of a fabulous team of Demonstrators  – Julies’ Jems
and we get together on a regular basis and share our love of all things crafty.
If you would like to take a peep at my crafty projects, why not visit my blog at
where you can see the projects that I have made using Stampin' Up! products.
