Spring and Wedding Fever is in the air

Spring is here in the Southern Hemisphere and Wedding fever is in the air. What better way to celebrate this season by making a Wedding Present to give to the lovely couple. The gorgeous couple who kindly lent me their Wedding photos to use is my cousin Sarah and her husband David.
I designed this project as part of 
The base is made using a coffee bottle that I wrapped in a strip of Designer Paper from Kaisercraft Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden range called Flower Blooms. The circles surrounding each photo was cut using Spellbinders Nestabilites Decorative Elements Stately Circles S4-388 
The top was covered in the smallest of Spellbinders Grand Nestabilites - Grand Decorative Circles One LF-015. Butterflies were made from Spellbinders Grand Shapabilities by Donna Salazar Wonderful Wings LF-006. Pearls by Want2Scrap and Kaisercraft. I used skewers wrapped in dotted ribbon to hold the photos.
Lace is from Green Tara.
Flowers were made with Spellbinders by Donna Salazar Bitty Blossoms S5-086 and edged with Tsukineko Memento Rich Cocoa Me-000-800 and Desert Sand Me-000-804.
The edge of the bottom and top of the Photo Vase was made with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Persian Accents S5-078 which I folded in a concertina fashion. I used 3 lengths for the top and 3 for the bottom and joined together most pieces using a  hot glue gun and Xyron

Cards for the Troops

I am sending a call out for handmade Cards for the Troops, they can be generic cards or birthday cards with our without sentiments inside. 
Missing You
Thinking of You
Love you
and cards they can write in to send back home

These will be boxed up and sent over to a Chaplain I went to school with over in Afghanistan, to give out to the troops to send back home to their families. If you'd like to contribute to this worthy cause and get more information, email me or leave a comment on this post with your email and I will contact you.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this worthy cause.
I will also be taking cards that have been sent to you that you do not know what to do with and remount onto a new backing card stock. Thank you to all those who have responded so far, your generosity and commitment knows no bounds and it will be appreciated far and wide by both the sender and recipient.
There are no news agencies or card shops where our military goes in war torn areas, so to show our appreciation for giving up their lives and time for us, this is how we show them in a small way that we  care.

Danny Nickerson

I saw this post from another crafter on facebook and because I do a lot of my cards and send them off to charity I thought this would be an awesome cause.

Danny Nickerson

If you would like to send a card address it to:
Danny Nickerson
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA 02035

The link takes you to an article about Danny Nickerson and why he'd like cards for his birthday.

So dig deep everyone, I am sure you have a spare card that would make a 6 year old battling cancer make his day a great one.

And don't  stop at that, send him cards in the future while he goes through his illness and treatment to keep him going.
