Stephen's Story

Hi everyone.

Today  I would like to  introduce you too an  amazing  young  man named  Stephen Sutton.

A few days ago, I was made aware of  this  young man.

Please read below---

"Stephen Sutton has been battling cancer since the age of 15. On January 13th 2013, shortly after finding out his disease was incurable, Stephen made a Facebook page called “Stephen’s Story”. On the page he outlined a bucketlist of 46 things he wanted to achieve in the near future. Since creating the page Stephen’s following has grown exponentially and he has inspired thousands of others with his positivity and passion for life. He has achieved more than most would in a lifetime; resulting in him winning countless awards in recognition of his inspirational work, most notably he has raised over £560,000 for charity in just one year. This is not a sob story, this is Stephen’s Story."
Following the shock of an incurable cancer diagnosis Stephen came to terms with the fact his long term goals of becoming a doctor were realistically not viable anymore, so as a result he needed a change of a direction. On the 13th January 2013 he created the Facebook page Stephen’s Story.
In its original form, the page consisted of casual updates while the active teenager ticked off items from his bucketlist of 46 things he wanted to do with the time he has left. Since then, the page has developed and its sole goal is to help others- whether that be by the fundraising the page promotes, the motivational quotes and statuses that are put out, or just by the humour and general positivity he integrates within every status.
Stephen’s Story has since expanded to other forms of social media including Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, amongst others. The much admired teenager, who writes every update himself, has now most impressively acquired over 16,000 dedicated Facebook fans and nearly 15,000 avid followers on Twitter.
Stephen’s Story has now evolved into all encompassing online platform that Stephen uses to spread as much positivity as possible from. Thus far he has inspired thousands of people across the world with his passion for life and will continue to make a genuine difference for as long as he can.

I want to help Stephen raise more awareness and funds for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Starting today April 30th - May 3rd all proceeds from the sale of all my Lacy Sunshine Boo's including my new Jenni Boo will be donated to this Trust.


Below are more links for you to read about Stephen, a remarkable man.

(The  above information  was  found  from  Stephen's  Facebook  page  and  website).

Cancer is a terrible thing. I have personally seen it affect numerous people and take lives way too soon.
I hope and pray that together with your help and with the help of my Lacy Sunshine Boo's we can  raise awareness and help join in the fight.

Below is My new Jenni Boo, which is available in the new section to my shoppe.
I thank you from the bottom of your heart for any and all support.
Thanks you..
Hugs ,
Heather

Girly you rock!!


Hello Everyone,
Here is Tiets and this is my first post on this blog.. I was very proud when Heather asked me to join this team, and I had to think it over for a while, because I am very busy with my DT work for Noor! Design. But I love the digi's Heather is making so I said yes!
I will tell you something more about myself. I am married to Karel and we have 2 children. My daughter is 25 years old and is living with her boyfriend,(they will gett married febr next year!) and my son of 23 is living with us. He is a student.
I also work , helping older people at home, which is very greatfull to do.
Since 2,5 years am I working for Noor! design, and it is so great to work with their materials. We have a lovely team !
Now my card:
This is Rory-Delivery of love.. I love the cool look of her and just had to color her.
You can find her here in the section sweet urchins .



I started with my copics markers and when I had her face and hair done,  I had to pick the purple colors and nothing was right with the papers I was using! So I surched my prisma pencils and colored the rest !
The papers are just perfect for rocky Rory and I think I have managed to make a cool card with her.
As I told you I am a DT member of Noor! Design. They are making dies, stamps and papers and all you see on the card is Noor! Design. It is so easy to combine all these things on a card.
I hope I have inpired you with this card and  you will see more of me in the future here!

Hugs Tiets xx

Another Newbie to the Creative Team



Happy Saturday!  I'm Donna Mundinger and am so thrilled to be joining you here as a new member of the Lacy Sunshine Creative Team.  I'll be sharing a project I made with the adorable Mayde line of stamps.  I've used all 6 of the Mayde Stamps (currently available in the NEW section of the Shop) to make a little weekly inspirational chore reminder with note pad.  Each day showcases Mayde hard at work.

Monday features Mayde Laundry Day.


Tuesday, Mayde Pressing Matters


Wednesday, Mayde Spring Cleaning Dust Bunnies


Thursday, Mayde's Electric Broom


Friday, Mayde Scrub, Scrub, Scrub


and finally Saturday Mayde's Puppy Bathtime.
 
I'm pretty sure Mayde rests on Sunday after all that hard work.  LOL  Have to say I enjoyed coloring this gal a lot more than I do cleaning house, but my project makes me smile and I hope you like it too.  Come visit me at Popsicle Toes to ay "Hi" and see a few more pix.

Rory Love.

Hi everyone!

A while ago  I  created  the  very   first  characters to my  popular  Sweet Urchin Collection.  The   first  set of  characters  to  debut included,  Annie, Mikey, Ilsa and RORY.

Rory,  has  since taken the  world by  storm and  today I  would like to  showcase  my most  beloved lil urchin.

As  you can  see  by  the   drawings and  creations  below Rory is  99% of time  drawn with her  special  delivery  bag.  I  guess  you  could  say that  is her lil  trademark persay.  She  has  other  features   too....  that  separate this  loveable  tomgirl  from the  rest.. including her   big  hat, messy hair, usually over one  eye  and those  patchy coveralls, of  course  one  normally   always  missing a  button. 

What's   Rory's   charm?  I think its  just that loveable  glisten in her  eyes and   her   facial  expressions.....  it is  for me  anyway.   I  am  sure  when you look at this  cutie  you  will  find  other   things  that   warm  your  heart  about  Rory.  But whatever charm  she  has  ... one this is   for  sure is  simply irresistible.

Enjoy   the  AMAZING Rory Eye Candy!









Lacy Sunshine's  Rory Sweet Urchin collection is  available only in  our  Crafter's  Candy Shoppe.

Want to  thank everyone for their  amazing   eye  candy featuring  our  star RORY! 

I hope you have a  wonderful day fellow artists, crafters and  friends.

Have a  beautiful day!
Hugs, Heather
