I'm still at a loss for words as to just how much you guys all pull together when one in the *community* is hurt or needs help! It's so hard to explain it to others that *aren't in the know*- hubby was astounded yesterday. I've tried to explain to him that just because we are *online* doesn't mean that we don't feel or understand each others plight- that we share MORE sometimes through our LO's,mails and our blogs that we would with some of our friends or family members. That to some of us-THIS is their family and that keeping in contact and sharing with people that enjoy the same things as you - keeps a lot of us ALIVE and makes one feel connected. I'm not sure if I have said that in the right words- but I KNOW you will understand what I am saying.!
So with that said- I want to send you a HUGE HUMBLED THANK YOU- from myself, from Bunny and from all the girls at DSO! We honestly NEVER expected the reaction we got yesterday- and to have Bunny in tears at the end of the day says MORE than you will ever know! THANK YOU -ALL your names and messages have all been copied and pasted in a card which is being sent with 100% of the sales made yesterday! To all of you that left messages on Jazzy's blog- and goodness there are a lot of them- I was in tears this morning reading them- THANK YOU!
BIG BIG BIG HUGS to you and your compassion that seems to be boundless!
OK- some CT work from me- lol
I did this LO of my dear friend Loryn who left for Cape Town last weekend.
Now let me tell you her favourite colour is GREEN! This girl has green EVERYTHING- hahaha. And I wanted to scrap this gorgeous photo of her-
I used Bonnie Van Esch's New kit- Country Fresh for it- the colours where PERFECT! I blended in one of the papers to make the flower halo around her head- and added the flower to her ear. Word art freebie by K.Pertiet
Left the rest simple as I think the photo does it's own talking for this one ;-)
And Have you seen the DOSIES week 3 challenge on the DSO BLOG?- WOOHOO
Come and have some fun with us- we're all turning into *glue monsters*- lol This week you can grab 2 CARD templates- and show us what you have done with it-
Here is what I did with this one
This is the front-
I used the Lets connect kit to make the inner square and printed it off- then made the layers with card- Printed the main front and just glued the square on with the ribbon and charms.
And the inside- used word art by Elegant word art- adapted.
Come play with- I'd LOVE to see what you do with the templates!
And Bonnie has a present for you on her blog too- she did this STUNNING LO from my Softly Sweet Kit
AWWW- LOVE those ribbon flowers!

Just another big Thank you, and sending you TONS of love today! Will keep you all informed as to how Jazzy is doing the minute I hear anything. Until tomorrow- Huge hugs and Loves Kim
