Thinking of you…

9 Nov

They say bad things come in 3’s, and although I might not be a believer Monday seemed to prove me wrong.

I had 3 bad news in the same day, but the last being the worse! My dear mum told me that a close family friend had breast cancer possibly in both breasts. My stomach was in noughts, I felt ill!!

Even though statistics say that, 1 in 11 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 75, when it’s family or close friends you feel numb and an unknown surreal feeling takes over your thoughts…

So I wanted to tell her that she is in my thoughts and prayers, and a great way to do this is by making your own card….

My dear friend, I’m sending you and your family lots of love and may God give you strength to endure what may come….  (Psalms 34:18)

Stamping with friends

8 Nov

My first post…. how exciting!!

…. so after much anticipation the day finally came, to get together with a bunch of girlfriends (15) and put our creative minds to the test!

Creating 2 projects were lots of fun. All the stock (stamps/ink/punches,etc) were from a great company called  Stampin Up. I love their stuff and my catalogue from Stampin Up is a testament to that – full of tabs on my favourites items… LOL!

Everyone were happy with what they had achieved. A few of us (being perfectionist like me) got a bit frustrated at ourselves when things didn’t line up properly but in the end, all looked great. What was I thinking!!  :)

If only it all was as easy as snip snip chop chop!! LOL ;)

Truthfully what a great way to catch up with friends and have a laugh!!

Thanks again Claire for being such a sweet and patient demonstrator! Check out her work at “A Crafty Little Fox“.

Will do it again for sure….
