EHA Challenge and a very special stamp....

Good Afternoon!! Well we have had true Scottish weather today. We have had all seasons in one day..rain, sun, sleet and snow. Just to finish it off we had a little thunder too! Its really cold and more snow is forecast .
Anyway i am here with my DT card for Elphine House Australia's Challenge which starts today and also a little special story about the stamp i used today.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The challenge theme is ...PEARLS AND LACE!

The winner of the challenge will win 2 Elphine House Australia stamps. If you have not been to the store yet you must hop on over to have a look, they are all all Elisabeth Bell images are!!

On my card today i have used a very special stamp! This stamp was originally from the "Daisy Collection" by Elisabeth Bell and as we know EHA are bring us some of these stamps back. Well this stamp has made its way back but with a new name..She is called "Carrie on Trike"...
Helen and Lew, who own EHA, are the most lovely, generous couple ever and they have made one little girl a very re-naming this stamp after my daughter Carrie! This is the second stamp to be named after her.  
The first one is is "Carrie Swan Princess" which you can see here. Carrie has Auto immune Liver Disease and had been unwell over Christmas so you can just imagine her little face when she received her very own stamp from the postman!!
She is so proud of her stamps and love being "a little bit famous"!! I found her the other day on google looking up the name of the stamps to see if there were any cards made using her stamps online!
Here she is with her two "Carrie" stamps!!

I want to say a great big "Thank You" to Helen and Lew, our DT's Mamma and Papa Bear,  for making Carrie feel so special and also for being so understanding and caring while i have been ill. It really means a lot to us!
