Mommy and baby ducks

It is time for a new challenge at Stamping with the Dragon. This time the challenge is to "use a household item"and if you are the winner, you will receive a $10.00 voucher to Aspire to Thrive Children's Charities Thrift Shop, located in South Australia. For those of us not living in South Australia, I am sharing with you the information that was sent to the design team of Stamping with the Dragon.

"Aspire To Thrive Children's Charities (was Incy Wincy Children's Charities - hence the challenge blog name) was started by a group of dart friends here in Elizabeth and Salisbury ,South Australia - who wanted to give something back to the community. A group of us have continued to do through out the last 2 years and we have been shown the amount of difficulty our society has towards children with special needs. There are a lot of charities out there who help children with terminal illnesses so we thought we could aim more towards learning and behavioral difficulties.

We are in talks now with a local kindergarten to see what we can do to help them. This would be a wonderful project and I hope with all my heart this goes ahead.

We have found an official home base now and are going from strength to strength.

ALL our work is voluntary and we get no ongoing assistance from anyone. We have gotten a few tiny grants to help with uniforms and equipment, for which we are grateful.

Our shop at are donated drawings and ALL money (minus paypal costs) go directly into the charity.

We are grateful for any sales, help or donations (cards etc for our stalls)."

So there you have the scoop. Take your time, visit the each of the design team members  for inspiration and then create something using a household item -- I used black thread, aren't I clever? The challenge starts today and you have until April 14 to enter.
