Compassion and A Heartfelt Thanks


It is with much excitement that I contacted Compassion today with a donation of $900! 

To date we have raised $863.75! What a fantastic contribution you have all made to the lives of the 500 people that live in Athicha's Community in Thailand. 

The money goes to the Project Fund and the areas of need which includes education, medical and housing supplies and also supplements food and water to the families as there is limited employment within the village (most are unemployed but Athicha mother and father are labourers when they can get work). The majority of the families live in straw huts with thatched roofs. 

I look forward to hearing from Compassion and the Project Officers with an outcome of this additional project funding and planning my continued support of Athicha, her family and wider community.

CASE-ing the Catty Jolly Friends and Hat Bundle - #CTC107



It's December! and only 3 weeks to Christmas Day...I am still busy making Christmas Cards and today I am featuring my favourite Punch Bundle from the Holiday Catalogue for CASE-ing the Catty.

You maybe starting here so welcome or you may have come from Rachel Palmieri and I love what she has created this week.

I am highlighting the Jolly Friends stamp set and Jolly Hat Builder Punch, which is on the retirement list so if you want to purchase this at $52.00 which is 10% discount you must order before they are going, going, gone.

I have also used the owls from the Cozy Critters hostess set, which goes so well with those cute santa hats.

My background of branches are stamped by using Stampin' Markers in Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Tip Top Taupe.  I had then punched out the owls in Sahara Sand with the hats and scarves in Pool Party and Real Red and then stamped the owls eyes and beak in Tip Top Taupe.  I have then layered all the pieces to give different depths and shades of colour and then finally finished them with a Silver and Red Mini Jingle Bells.

The Mini Jingle Bells are on sale at the moment for $6.80 reduced from $8.00 for a packet of 30 each of Silver and Red Bells measuring 6.4 mm.

I did not have a piece of matching Pool Party designer series paper so I used the Brushstrokes background stamp set on an angle to create the border at the bottom of the card.

Stamp Set:  Jolly Friends, Cozy Critters, Brushstrokes
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Pool Party
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, Pool Party, Tip Top Taupe, Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand
Accessories:  Jolly Hat Builder Punch, Mini Jingle Bells, Owl Builder Punch, Triple Banner Punch

Now it's time to hop on over to Krissy Buck who has created with the same Punch Bundle.



If you are inspired this week by the blog hop featuring the Punch Bundles why not participate in our monthly challenge CASE-ing a card or project from the Holiday Catalogue, go to the linky tool at CTC and the winner will be announced on the first Sunday in January.
