Hi everyone!

I hope you are all keeping well. I really can’t believe it's already March 2023, time really does fly!



As most of you are aware I lost my late husband Glenn in May 2022 to a very rare cancer. Because there wasn’t enough information/statistics on the cancer he had they were unsure of which treatments would or wouldn’t work, they basically threw whatever they could at it, sadly the treatment they tried didn’t work. I want to raise as much money as I can towards the research into this type of small bowel cancer he had in the hope that some day they will find more treatments and hopefully a cure to stop other people suffering like he did. Craft Buddy have been amazing and are offering three prizes - 1st Prize £50 web voucher, 2nd Prize £10 web voucher 3rd Prize £10 web voucher. In order to be in with a chance of winning you need to:

I have made a card to give you some inspiration into what you could enter the competition with. To make this card you will need:

Step-by-step instructions:

1. Mat and layer the co-ordinating cardstock to fit the 8x8 card:

2. Cut down the decorative paper to fit and glue in place

3. Using the bird silhouette stamp, randomly stamp over the paper

4. Stamp the plane twice (you will only need the propeller off one of these images), the clouds and the banner onto white stamping card, add your greeting onto the banner, colour all images and then cut out.

5. Using a thin paintbrush add some of the magic glue onto the images, spread over and allow to dry clear (it will remain sticky) Tip - if you are wanting to leave your images overnight please put some of the non-stick film roll on top to protect them

6. Once the magic glue has dried clear you can begin to add your chosen colours of crystals. 

7. Once completed, arrange the clouds, the plane and banner in the sky, when you are happy with the layout, using glue gel stick them down

8. Add a thin line using a black pen to join the banner to the plane
