who died suddenly this week her family posted the following on her blog -
I personally will miss her blond, bubbly hair, her wonderful smile and the lovely comments she left on my blog.
I used Basic Grey Wassail papers, coloured the image in watercolours. The sentiment is Aud designs and ribbon and the rest from stash.

Stamp with Sarah Kay is do anything you like providing you use a Stampavie image. Since I got this stamp by Sarah Kay I've fancied doing something with a 'vintage' look with it as the image itself has a vintage feel. The BP is core-dinations on top of which I used some newpaper paper which I have had forever. I used the snowflake folder on white and mounted the image onto this.
I made this 'bauble' last week but couldn't post it as I wanted to photograph actually hanging on my tree, which is black, silver and white. I only decorated last night, hence the delay in posting, which was a little silly as you can't see the rest of the tree anyway.

1. I was born under the sign of Pisces but hate water (well cold water anyway). It's primarily water over my head, have to be forced to take a shower but will stay in a bath forever.
2. My parents christened me Heather Valerie, but called me Val. All official bodies, ie. shcools, doctors, passport peoples etc. call me Heather (which I prefer and use anyway) but family always call me Val - is it any wonder I'm crazy, mixed-up confused person?
3. I have a brilliant sense of direction - I always know which direction I want to be in, but always struggle to get there, especially when driving. I've been lost in every country I've driven in - Fuertaventura, Germany, Belgium, Kenya and believe it or not I still get lost in Blackburn and I've lived here for 30 years.
4. My daughter is forever telling me to 'grow-up' Why? to quote a friend - I just act my shoe size not my age.
I'm stuck here for the moment so will have to come back to this.

I've been thoroughly 'wishy washy' all week and am putting down to that 'flu bug that's going around. I haven't gone down with it but have been feeling pretty ropey all week. The outcome of this indesiciveness is I ended up with two cards, which is a little silly as they are more or less alike. Still, looking on the bright side - that's another Christmas card done.
I used teenage Lizzie as the main image on the outside and used the Cuttlebug Winter House folder on the inside which I glittered with Stickles. The image is coloured with a mixture of watercolours and Prismas. The use the Snowflake die as centre of the flowers and the rest is from stash.

TaraG and Kirsten a 'bloggy' mate from Docrafts.
This is it:
This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships!These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind blogger's aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight blogger's who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.What a wonderful sentiment and an elegant award.
Now I have to pass it on to 8 people, so difficult with all the friends I've made out there. Anyway, this is the 8 I chose:
I have tried to pass this award to friends who don't already have it. If you have it already - tough - you've got it twice.
House Mouse team - Polka dots. I love polka dots and have so many different ones (digital downloads) my only problem was which to use. I used a tried and tested layout but altered it slightly by adding rounded corners. I love this 'Bunny bath' image and decided to paper piece it with some 'wood' paper I have and I used a silver gel pen to colour the metal rings on the barrel (bath). the BP are from Free Digital Scrapbooking and flowers, ribbons and brads from stash.
Digital Scrapbook Art added some flowers bought in Germany and brads, ribbons and beads from stash. I cut Ellie's name using the cuttlebug Harmony alphabet and highlighted it with a white gel pen (also missing with copics)
