As this is such a special cause, I have made two examples this week

This one is by JLJ Designs over at the Stitchy & I Did It Creations store .I cut up various pieces of different papers & stuck them onto my card, then cut up strips & placed them on top to create a grid of colour. Printed the image onto card, glittered the flag in rainbow colours. Found a copyright free rainbow on the internet & placed the text over the top.

This is a set of papers by Toucan Scraps over at the store again especially made for the challenge. This time I used a template from UKScrappers for a paper doily & cut it out on my Robo. Placed an eyelet at the top with some rainbow fibres & hey presto, a wall hanging for my neice Hannah. Added flowers & a tag from stash with a brad & voila!

Entered into the following challenges

Its not a lot, but nevertheless a gesture in aid of a good cause. All I would ask is that you comment & think about becoming a follower, although its not necessary to win. I may vary the contents slightly but there will not be less than photographed & could be more...lol. I will pick a winner next Sunday night & post the winner then.
Finally at the end of a long post, did you notice how I did all the text in rainbow colours??????
