Website is Fixed, Flo’s Fund Raiser, New Samples!

Hi Everyone,

I'm so HAPPY to say our website is fixed finally and back up! I'm going to ask for 8 months of free hosting for the 8.5 days it was down! All our emails are working now as well.

Look at this pretty Easter Basket DT member Flo Teixeira from France created! The bunnies are from our Calendar Creative Scraps and you can see more photos and the other products she used HERE on Flo's blog. If you scroll below you can also read about the fundraiser & giveaway Flo is hosting BUT it's only open to our European readers due to the high cost of postage and possible foreign exchange fees on Paypal. She has an English translator on the right side of her blog.

Flo is hosting a fund raiser for her friends house which burned down in France. I donated some products for a giveaway and she will be drawing a winner from all the people who donate BUT - due to the high cost of postage it is only open to people from Europe. The donation is through French Paypal and a minimum of 6 Euros is needed, so I don't know if anyone in the USA or Canada can donate with out being charged a foreign exchange fee - but I know we have readers of this blog throughout Europe who may want to help out! Here is the link.

For those who make a donation of 6 Euros or more, Flo will email them the link to our Eiffel Tower Pattern and enter them in the draw. The tower prints on two 8.5 x 11" pieces of cardstock and is easy to make but you need to cut out the 4 sides. Look at this beautiful sample Flo created with the pattern. She put hers on a base which I thought was a great idea. She also used our French Mail Stamps to stamp 'Paris' on the little banner that comes with the pattern.

DT member Melissa Phillips created 3 super pretty cards using our Garden Creative Scraps and this is one of them. You can see the other cards HERE on Melissa's blog.

Melissa showed this card below on an earlier post HERE using our Spring Cotton Scraps. I adore this Sweet Pea image she used and I love how she cut the twill fabric with pinking shears. I also missed adding the link to her bunny card HERE last post.

I spotted another really pretty sample HERE on DT leader Vicki Chrisman's Blog. She used our Easter Creative Scraps and I'm expecting an order for the very beautiful gold stickers she used around the image and some very cool embellishments which I will be showing you soon!

That's all folks until next time
Wishing you all joy & creativity
Sandy Redburn

I don't think uou ought to ask that question. I don't think you lost that much money or were damaged that badly.
