Wonderful Wings - Addicted To Stamps DT Card & Look Twice For Bikes Think Jamie Appeal

Good morning lovely peeps,
I am seriously not liking all the thunderstorms we are getting at the moment, hubby, Gareth & Jodie enjoy them while muma here is a big baby freaking out with every flash & rumble lol.
I am pushed for time as I'm working an extra shift today & I have an important appeal at the end of my post & I should have two cards to share today so hopefully I'll get my second card posted tonight after work, as I've an 8am start I'd best stop waffling and type lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this challenge our theme is

We are very sad to be saying goodbye to three of our lovely friends in our little Addicted To Stamps family, Teresa, Liz & Tasha, miss you girlies already, thanks so much for being such wonderful teamies xxx
 I've added my favourite pretty butterflies to my card, I can't seem to make a girlie card without those gorgeous Simon Says Stamp butterflies I love them :)
I am going to confess this card should have been my Totally Tilda DT card 3 weeks ago which is why my sweet Tilda has red hair for a change but what with my lack of mojo & much needed family time I only got around to finishing it a couple of days ago.
The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - R89, R59, R39, dress - C3, C1, C00, cardigan & shoes - RV95, RV93, RV91
The papers are by Maja Design and that gorgeous large flower is from The Ribbon Girl.
I'm entering my card in the following challenge -
Totally Gorjuss - anything goes with pearls

This little card will be available in my Etsy shop later :)
My candy finished a couple of days ago PLEASE do not email me asking if you have won, already that has driven me crazy lol. I will get around to checking for double entries in the next few days and I will announce the winner probably in Wednesday's DT post.

Before I finish as you are aware Jodie has recently lost another young friend Jamie in a motorbike accident,  due to this Jamie's lovely parents John & Sonia have started a campaign to try and make motorists become more aware of motorbikes as sadly just like in Jamie's accident so many drivers just don't see motorbikes on our roads.
 If you are on Facebook PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE like & share this page peeps!! Spread the word... Get the support needed and make our roads safer for bikers

    As Bikers ourselves till 5years ago, we know all too well the need for motorists to take that second and third look before pulling out.Its not always carelessness but the fact that bikes are not seen as well as a larger vehicle.
    Huge hugs for Jodie and Jamies family.

  20. Hi Mandy your card is just stunning, you always put such a lot into your design and this one is no exception. Im so sorry to hear about your friend, a lot of the youngsters around here have been lost because they do not take care and its difficult sometime to see them so maybe its time something was done to help them. hugs Shirleyxxx

  27. Wow!!! Your card is stunning.
    The colours are gorgeous and your colouring superb.
    Truly inspirational.
    I have just read the sad sad news.
    My husband rides every Sunday and I am always on tender hooks. I tell him to be careful every time but it's not necessarily the rider. Is it?
    I feel so sad that this young man's life has been taken.
