I've copied the information below from the Bubblyfunk Shoppie page about Ellies Auction. Please click HERE to go to the website where you will be able to link to the Fotopix site.
As many of you may already be aware Kirsty Wiseman is raising money to help her daughter get health treatment in the US.
We have decided to hold a little Auction for the Ellenor Wiseman Trust. If you are a Bubbly Funk Forum Member, you can view items for auction and add your own items to sell on. If not, please visit the Fotopix site where you can see what is available at the moment. If you would like to contribute by adding your own items for auction, please email me.
If you are interested in bidding for anything, again please email me either through the Contact Us page, or via PM on the Forum. Closing date for receiving all info and pictures of items for auction are Wed 27 Feb, with auction bids to be received by me by Mon 3 March, 7pm when the auction will be officially closed.
I used the black plastic base of a box of cherry tomatoes, punched out circles with my Cuttlebug and them used the little embossing folders with the flowers on. I cut round the flowers and stuck them onto punched gold card flowers. I've had the paper for ages, got it off Ebay and the ribbon was recycled off a box of something (can't remember what) at Christmas. A little bit of doodling round the flowers and gold pen on the edges.

What were you doing 10 years ago?
I had just finished a secondment to a management job and had to go back to my ordinary level. I found it frustrating not being in the know and able to influence decisions. My sons were 11 and 9 so I spent a lot more time doing things with them. Cross Country once a month with DS2 - OMG how I hated that.
What were you doing 1 year ago?
I was very worried about the situation at my work and although my job was secure, I had a lot of friends who were far less secure. Although there is more certainty now, there are still a lot of decisions to be made. I was also going to craft fairs to try to sell my felt handbags - never made enough to make it worthwhile.
Five snacks you enjoy:
Green and Blacks Chocolate
Oatcakes and Mature Lockerbie Cheddar
Thick hand fried crisps only in ready salted or salt and black pepper (I don't buy them, because once I start.....)
A slice of fruit loaf (try not to make this too often either, as I just eat it)
Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:
Build my own swimming pool and gym next to the house
Build a studio for all my craft projects
Build or buy houses for my boys
Let my DH stop work and go back to farming full time (buy him a new tractor)
Go on luxury holidays
Five bad habits:
Oh dear that's quite enough!
Five things you like doing:
Reading cookery books
Five things you would never wear again:
Five favourite toys:

I had such fun making it. The Heart Pocket template came from Splitcoast Stampers and I made it in vellum with a little heart shaped eyelet holding the pocket together.

It was frosty this morning with a bit of freezing fog, but that soon lifted, so it has been quite a nice day. DH has been out with his tractor and muck spreader, putting last years muck out on the fields. We still have an old-fashioned midden so the dung gets well rotted before it is put out, it doesn't even smell very much, unlike the horrible slurry that comes from the neighbouring dairy farms.
