Staying Awake for Charity

This weekend I did a 24hr craft-a-thon at Church, from 6pm on Friday evening until 6pm on Saturday evening raising money for Aigburth House which is a Methodist Homes Association residential home for the elderly in Leicester, they are building a new wing especially for Altzimer sufferers.  As I had already done a full day at work I was actually awake for 39 hours.  Good nights sleep last night but feeling very tired today.  Think it will have to be an early night again tonight as back to work tomorrow.  We had great fun doing it and I did 4 scrapbook layouts as well as some cards and raised lots of money for the cause.

The theme this week over at "Less is More" is Hearts and must be a one layer card
Funnily enough only last weekend I purchased a new stamp from Indigo Blue which was ideal

The image is called
"Love Is" very appropriate
I thought.  Inked with
momento chalk pads
in various
shades of blue
The love stamp is one
i've had for a long time
dont know the make.
I then masked and spritzed
the image with
tattered angels glimmer mist
dazzling diamonds
