Winter Anniversary & An Appeal Freebie

Good morning peeps,
I feel so much better today, five hours sleep and I feel great, far more with it, no more lie in's for me lol.

Today I have a card to share that was going to be my Simon Says Stamp DT card which I sent to a really lovely lady & dear friend Christine (Nanaseaside), or Mummy to us Totally Tilda girls as it was her Wedding Anniversary on Monday.
Ingredients -
Ribbon - Bo Bunny
Paper - Magnolia
Pearls & Gems - Hero Arts
Flowers - Prima, Magnolia & Wild Orchid
Pin & twirly thingy - homemade
Sparkle - Fairy Dust

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Everybody Art - anything goes, Ladybug Crafts Ink - bingo, middle row down, Partytime Tuesday - ribbon, Make It Monday - anything goes, Stamps & Fun=Creativity - favourite card making material, Magnolia stamps, Corrosive - anything but Christmas, Sparkles Forum - anything but Christmas, The Crafty Pad - anything but Christmas, Hiding In My Craft Room - embossing, Secret Crafter - New Year/Celebration, Sweet Stampin' - sparkle & bling

My ex Totally Tilda teamie Bertie or The Fairy as she's better known has this beautiful free image available to download on her blog HERE.
Please pop over & read Bertie's heartfelt post, she is asking for prayers or donations to the Canadian Cancer Society as someone dear to her is fighting this evil disease. I know that seeing someone you love scared and suffering is absolutely heartbreaking so if you do believe in prayers please say one for our friend Bertie too as she will need help to be strong.
That's it from me today peeps, thanks for stopping by
