A new challenge for 
Here is my card
This card is one of a batch l have made for this year
Postage was so expensive last year so a lot
Of flatter cards are going in the post even though
Some of the others wasn't built up too much
Using the stamp l stamped straight onto the card
l actually went over the faded area with a black pencil 
Just to make it stand out that little bit darker
Coloured Holly & Ivy with  Derwent pencils 
long time since l have coloured anything 
A lot of my images are now pre-coloured
But l have to admit l really enjoyed doing it
So might just do more colouring its so therapeutic

Enjoy your day whatever your plans

Condolences to two dear friends

 Good Morning to all you fellow bloggers 
Its a wet Sunday morning in my neck of the woods
Just hope its not going to be wet all day 
Although it does seem a little warmer 
And the sun is trying its best to come out
Here is a card l have for 
Not a good start to the year 
l lost 2 very dear friends they where my daughters god parents
Both died with-in a week of each other
Not knowing either had died one in hospital and the other at home
Only one child and what a service he gave his parents
Even he said it was the best funeral he had attended 
How he managed is beyond any ones imagination
He truly gave his parents a great send off
l just hoped the card l made and the words where of comfort to him
This is my card l always use this image 
Thank you for your visit
