Sunday Stampers - Week 34 - Love Is Like A.....

Morning Stampers,

Another Sunday, which means another new challenge from the Sunday Stamper. This week my theme is Butterfly.

Now, there is a very special reason why I have chosen this theme this week. If you click here, you will be magically transported to Dan's Blog. Dan has posted this week about a most wonderful request from The Holocaust Museum in Houston. They are hoping to collect 1.5million decorated butterflies and hold an exhibition in 2012, showing all of the butterflies they have been sent, and this exhibition will be held to commemorate that 1.5million children who lost their lives in the Holocaust. Dan has done his usual magic and made a template for two butterfly designs, which you can download to use with a CriCut or, if like me you haven't got a CriCut, you can also download the images straight to your printer. I printed off several of the butterflies and then simply cut them out. *I will at this point remind you all that I am a completely useless computery person and I was well chuffed that I managed to do this downloading lark all by myself :O)) The only stipulation is that you don't use any glitter on your decorated butterflies.

I would love that peeps could hop over to Dan's Blog and read all about this very special request - and maybe decorate your own butterfly.

However, if you are limited for time etc, please join in the Sunday Stamper anyway - simply use a butterfly stamp or incorporate a butterfly in your stamped design this week. Once you have completed your artwork, please pop a message on here and add a link to the place where you are showing your entry.




Yesterday I spent a lovely crafty day with my friend Linda. Whilst I am a bit slow at crafting at the moment cos of my horrid pain, I did manage to make a few butterflies for this good cause. After cutting out the images, I simply decorated with stamping techniques and inkyness.


I will just mention that the stamps I used on this fancy butterfly - wow, they are the brand new Flourish designs from The Artistic Stamper. Oh my goodness, I simply adore these new designs, they are so fabby to use and I know you will all think I am biased, but seriously, they are so versatile and just perfect!! :O)) Go on, you know you need to have a look here, don't you LOL

Here is one that I only managed to half do - I will try to get it finished later but thought I would include this piccie so you can see how easy it is to just download and print off the butterfly itself.




Anyway, thanks for looking and reading everyone - I think that this is a wonderful tribute to all those innocents who lost their lives so needlessly.

Hels xx
