Houses built if cards - BLOGAVERSARY!!!

Hello everyone I am here to help celebrate sweet Heather's - Housesbuiltofcards Blogaversary Blog Hop today with a bunch of super talented designers.  Please hop along and have fun!  Happy Blogaversary Heather!!

So if you hopped over here from the wonderful Amanda's blog, you're in the right spot!  If not you can start at the beginning of the hop over on super sweet Heather's Blog.

Here is my card:-

Lighting is not great in my house right now so apologies!

If you haven't visited Heather's blog before you may be wondering why her blog is named Houses Built of Cards, here she gives you a short explanation.

Like many crafters, I found out quite quickly with how addicting this cardmaking craft is that I can never use all the cards I find myself making. I also realized that I could not sell them for enough to justify my time and expenses. Then I realized that I could use them to help someone else. Something that had deeply touched my two young daughters, and filled their prayers, is what decided the direction to go from there.

We had some connection through my church to a ministry called Sister Connection that works in Burundi Africa to bring hope and healing to the widows and orphans of the Civil War that happened in the 1990’s. One of the ways they do that is by building homes – at an incredible cost of only $600! They hire local builders, and purchase supplies locally as well, fostering a sense of ownership and pride within the community. In Burundian society, widows are viewed as outcasts, and have no one to advocate for them. The miracle of a new home is a testimony to the widow, her children, her community, and ultimately, to the country at-large. “Widows and orphans deserve healing, dignity, and hope!”

I would like for you to meet someone very special. Her name is Charlotte (Ndimurwanko Charlotte). She is the first recipient of a home through sales of my cards. I have also committed to partnering with her as a sponsor for $30 a month to help provide her and her family with food, seed to plant, clothing, household necessities, medical care, and education assistance.

Charlotte has 3 married children, and she cares for 3 orphaned grandchildren. Her husband passed away in 1983. Her health is not good. This new home will help restore dignity and hope for Charlotte and her children. It is a true testimony of God’s love to the widow and orphan and a constant reminder that they are not forgotten.

So here are some prizes Heather is giving away!

For the chance to win just leave a comment here and all the blogs in the hop.  Good luck! ;) Hugs x

The Witch is in!

Hi guys...this weeks Design Team inspiration over on the Cutting Café is Boxes and it's also link up time over at Patches of Pink and the theme is Halloween...go and link up your Halloween projects over on the POP BLOG HERE and you can add upto 2 creations. Link your projects now through Tuesday 11:59pm. The top 3 from this weeks entries will be featured on the Patches of Pink blog....have fun!

I combined two DT projects this week as I am having a nightmare of a week with no kitchen or dining room whatsoever....floors up, wall knocked through and a thick layer of dust fun!  The two rooms we lost have come into the main house and stuff is piled everywhere!  We have new rooms but they are in the process of being wired and plastered!  So combining these projects this week has been a great saviour. Power is back on and if you don't hear from me for a while you know why!

Click here to check out what the Cutting Café design team came up with for this weeks Boxes inspiration.

I created this little pillow box in no time at all.....I love how quickly this came together, I love that Regina (the owner of the Cutting Café) includes the score lines in the cut so you just cut out and fold on the dashed cut lines and adhere together....super quick and easy as pie and no scoring......great when are have no time but need a cute little box to put a gift in!!

Here are the 4 cut-outs you get in this file.

Scrappymom's Sneak Peeks and a special!

Hi guys Scrappymom's are releasing these two new sets of stamps today!  A holiday to remember is full of wonderful holiday sentiments you will love!  Believe in Miracles is to help support those who's lives have been touched by cancer.  My dad was such a warrior and fought the disease for many years before he lost his battle with cancer in 1995.  My mum is in remission from Breast Cancer and I am so thankful that she is here with us today. ;) 

Also Scrappy Moms Stamps have FREE SHIPPING on all of their stamps from October 7th - October 16th! How fabulous is that!!!

Anyone that knows me knows how much I love Christmas...I love all the cute sentiments in this Holiday Set and I decided to decorate a cute lil' box I got from Crafty Ribbons that their buttons come in!  So cute to hang on the tree!
