What can you do with Virgin V!!!!!!!!

Good evening to you all in the land of blog

Today brings the next challenge at

This challenge will run from 1ST OF APRIL UNTIL THE 14TH OF APRIL

this  challenge we are supporting and being sponsored by


Here is a little bit about Aspire To Thrive

Aspire To Thrive Children's Charities (was Incy Wincy Children's Charities - hence the challenge blog name) was started by a group of dart friends here in Elizabeth and Salisbury ,South Australia - who wanted to give something back to the community. A group of us have continued to do through out the last 2 years and we have been shown the amount of difficulty our society has towards children with special needs. There are a lot of charities out there who help children with terminal illnesses so we thought we could aim more towards learning and behavioural difficulties.

We are in talks now with a local kindergarten to see what we can do to help them. This would be a wonderful project and I hope with all my heart this goes ahead.

We have found an official home base now and are going from strength to strength.

ALL our work is voluntary and we get no ongoing assistance from anyone. We have gotten a few tiny grants to help with uniforms and equipment, for which we are grateful.

Our shop at are donated drawings and ALL money (minus paypal costs) go directly into the charity.

We are grateful for any sales, help or donations (cards etc for our stalls)

please pop over and give them your support.

The theme this challenge is

(this threw me a bit - but it actually means use something in the house for your creative flair i.e a hairdryer instead of a heat tool or as I have here, used make up instead of distress ink)

The winner of this challenges will receive  $10 Voucher to Aspire To Thrive Shop

So now you want to know what you can do with Virgin V eye makeup??

This is my design team inspirational piece
The lovely distressed edging around the image frame is Virgin V in a brown tone and being a creamy powder it really worked quite well, I edged the computer generated sentiment in the same.

The base layer and contrast colour is a cream pearlescent paper, with GCD Studios Paris Nights paper for the layers.  The music on one of the papers picked up by the black ribbon and the flowers in black, brown and cream to match the colours on the card.  The image is coloured in copics alone on this occasion.

I would like to say hello to my new followers and thank you to my regular visitors and especially those that visit and leave me such lovely comments, allowing me the opportunity to hop back over to see them too, so thank you

I am entering this creation into the following challenges
Fab N Funky - Shabby Chic

Hugs and Happy Weekend to you all
