Angel Tilda Card and details on my Fundraiser Candy

Alas, the card that took a week!!
Gosh, I have been a wreck!!
Partially because of a cold, and in part because these emotional scars, and talking about my mom, knowing what is going on with our dearest Elise, a year ago, my Great Aunt died of progressive lung cancer that infested her entire body, just, phew, HARD. Have you had the chance to go on the worldwide adventure of the Inking Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop? There are loads of great projects and candies available, and we are promoting a great cause, SELF-AWARENESS!! I'd also like to take this opportunity to tell you about my candy, which can be found at the bottom of this post.

This was the project that was supposed to accompany the BY-DONATION-ONLY candy I am offering, it features the adorable Tilda, and she is coloured in distress inks, pinks and soft shades of teal, I am glad to have, at long last, completed my card. Instead of a sentiment, I have expressed myself with charms.

I'd like to enter this in the Just Magnolia Think Pink challenge, A Spoon Full of Sugars Let's Get Punchy Challenge, I know this is a bit of a stretch, but I am entering this at Magnolia Down Under as their theme is TRAVEL, and Angel Tilda has made her way down from the heavens to keep my dearest friend company through her battle with cancer, PaperTake Weekly is hosting a sparkly and bright challenge (definitely bright pinks happening here and lots of sparkle), at The ABC Challenges, G is for Glitter, indeed!!

Now about my candy that is going on via my Inking Pink bloghop post, just click HERE to be directed to it, I am offering this lovely bundle of goodies to one lucky lady, and in return for your entering the candy, I have asked that you make a pledge of $1 or more to benefit theNational Breast Cancer Foundation. I am collecting donations through Paypal, visit the DONATE button on the upper right hand corner of my blog to leave a pledge. Once the Blog Hop has ended, I will tally up all the pledges and forward them on to the National Cancer Foundation.

I'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to join in, if you'd like. And many, MANY thanks to the people who have supported me in my first attempt to orchestrate an online fundraiser, it means so much to me :)

And here is the prize on offer:

Well, that should do for now,
thank you so much for your visit today!!
warmest of hugs, stephanne
