My darling sister.....

This is the most heartbreaking post I have ever blogged and it is a tribute to my sister Karen, who passed away on Monday.
Cancer is a terrible disease and Karen fought it successfully twice, but this last one was horrendous! Karen suffered such pain but you would never have known as she carried on as normally as possible.
For those of you that followed her blog you will know how creative she was. She was skilled in card making, embroidery, felting, mixed media and was a fabulous cook! In fact everything she turned her hand to was successful.

This was the last photo taken of Karen as she lunched with a friend a couple of months ago.

A much loved sister and aunt who will be sorely missed, now pain free and at peace.

NBUS and a few cards......

Afternoon all, where do the weeks go? I've got a few creations to show you so grab a cuppa and sit back.....
Firstly here is my offering for Darnell's NBUS challenge which is an acronym for never before used stuff and we all have some of that! It's not a card but a coaster that I altered using a matching stamp and die set called Teatime by Sizzex and Graphic 45 come and see: Not sure why it's not very clear it looks fine on my camera!

The next card was for my friend who has just had a granddaughter after 3 boys!

The horsey one is for my goddaughter's middle daughter who loves horses and I had fun making this with punches!

This was for my friend's daughter with Irish connections hence using the 3D embossibilities folder another NBUS item!

Finally an engagement card for my niece in Ireland who got engaged on Valentine's Day in Paris, very romantic!

Sorry it's so picture heavy but I'll be back after the weekend as we are off to portsmouth for Charlie's birthday and I'll show his card then.
