Last Sneak Peak :o)

Good morning

Today I am showing you my last sneak peak using Sheena's new stamp range which is being launced today.  The beautiful image on this card is from one of the 'Wouldn't It Be Lovely' stamp plates and was one of my favs to colour. 

For this card I wanted the image to be the main focal point so decided to use one of my Cuttlebug folders for the background instead of papers.  I added just a little detail with the pearls and punched border using my favourite MS punch :o)





For My Dad

17/11/1947 - 2/10/2008




It's a sad day for me because it's two years ago that we lost my dearly loved dad.  He was only 60 and unfortunately suffered a stroke which he never recovered from.  I found this verse on the internet and it summed up my feelings about my dad so thought I would post it on here.

What we'd give if we could say,
'Hello Dad' in the same old way;
To hear your voice, and see your smile,
To sit with you and chat awhile,

So if you who have a father,
Cherish him with care,
For you'll never know the heartache,
Till you see his vacant chair.

Love and miss you always Dad xx


Hope you don't mind me posting about this but I still miss my dad as much as I did two years ago and couldn't let today pass without mentioning him.

Hope you all have a great weekend :o)
