Triple Treat flower and Dandelion Project needs your support!

Here are two cards that I made having chosen a colour combination inspired by the delicious "Cheerful Treat" Hostess Designer Series Paper.  I used the Triple Treat flower stamp, from the a la carte collection (see it on page 14 of the catalogue, #125040 just $16.95!).  As the name suggests, this stamp can be used with (or without!) three different punches for quick easy cards - 5 petal flower, Fancy Flower and 1/2" circle punch.  It also suits the "Rock and Roll" technique for adding a darker colour around the outside of the stamp for a two-tone effect, or you can use markers to colour different sections of the stamp.    There's some sewing, some distressing and some yum Concord Crush poly twill ribbon.  Concord will be leaving us come September 1, and it is a quite unique dark purple/blue, which looks stunning with Wisteria Wonder, Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade and lots more - make sure to stock up (and get a reinker for your pad!) before it's gone...  act now!

Speaking of 'act now', here's a totally non-stamping related plug for a cause about which I am most passionate - bullying.  More precisely, it's a support and anti-bullying digital book being planned.  It's a unique idea, with obvious appeal to children, presented in an accessible digital format.
The "Dandelion - Bullying is for People with no Imagination" project is currently listed on "Kickstarter", with 10 days to go to reach the funding target.  There is a short video with information by the creator, access it via the widget below and lots of options to help - every dollar counts!  I'm sure as a community of very imaginative people we can get them over the line and feel proud to have contributed a little to a big cause.

Please help if you can, and spread the word so we can help make this project come to life!
