We Love Guy Gondron!! (Fundraiser)

Posted on April 10, 2011 by Colleen

If you’re a member of the CMS community, there’s no need to explain who Guy is. If you casually collect our freebies, allow me to explain.

Guy is our very talented resident artist. You can check out his work at, or his blog at Work in Progress. He has drawn most of our amazing digital stamps. (I’m to blame for the less than awesome ones.) Guy has been my best friend for the past ten years. He is without a doubt the nicest, most talented person I know. God broke the mold with him.

Guy is having a rough time now. He was recently diagnosed with throat cancer. You can read about it in greater depth on his blog if you like, he’s keeping a fantastic journal there. I cannot begin to explain how this has affected the CMS community. For most of us, Guy is our “Art Hero”. We love him to pieces and it breaks our hearts to know he has to fight this. We’re determined he will not be fighting alone.

So, we are having a fundraiser. We are selling a zip file with every single digital stamp Guy has ever drawn for CMS in it. That’s like a bazillion images. The zip file is affordably priced at $10. Every last penny paid for the zip file will go directly to Guy, so that he can manage his medical bills and living expenses through treatment. Please help us out.

The file is available here:

Here is my favorite ever stamp that Guy has drawn for CMS, enjoy it.

Double post for Copic Marker Scrapbooking Design Team

Good Morning All,

Before I head off to to work today I am posting my two cards I made for Copic Marker Scrapbook , you should head over there and check out their stuff!

My first card is Bunny with Flowers, this little digi guy is too cute! I can also say that I have started my Easter cards! Yeah me, this is a first normally I am rushing a day before to finish everything, hmmm this maybe a new trend for me... Probably not.
I used a Easter word paper that i got from Michaels for the background it seemed to fit with this little guy. The Copics I used are:
Bunny: R00, R20, E00, E11,E13, E35, E50.
Flowers: Y00,Y38, YR23,YG03, G24
Bows: BV00, BV08, BV11, BV17, BV31
and Background: W0, W1, W3

The Flower in a vase card I can not take full credit for my DH gave me a suggestion and I ran with it he told me to put the lines in on the flowers and the brown dots. I think it turned out very cool. The background paper was from a Christmas stack I received from my mother, it has a hint of glitter in it. The button and the ribbon was from the stash I have laying around in this mess I call my workroom. The copics I used for this piece are:
Flowers: E41, E50, E49, YG03, Y06, YR23
Leaves: YG00, YG11, YG63, YG67, G00, G11, G14, G21, G24
Vase: Y15,YR23,YR31

Well I am off to work I hope everyone has a wonderful day and I will see you all very soon.
