FOR MY NAN........................

Afternoon all!

Hope you are all having a  fab day and did you have an extra hour in bed or was you crafting lol!??
Well I must say I had an extra hour of crafting in peace and quiet, and it was lovely ahhhhhh.
Happy Halloween to those who enjoy it, I'm not one of those but hay ho it's fun for the kids :o)
Right, onto today's card and I really enjoyed making it. I have used a gorgeous fairy stamp from Lili of the Valley and my fave pad Memorybox "Gossamer". I am entering this card in a few challenges today and as it is October and is Breast awareness month, it's very close to my heart.  My Nan died from it a 5 years ago after battling with it twice. This is for you Nan and I miss you loads xx.

Stamp something ~ Pink
Alphabet ~ A is for Angels and Fairies
Paper Cutz # 65 ~ Breast Awareness
Create 4 Fun # 44 ~ Fab Sketch

Fairies ~ On Tiptoe ~ Lili of the Valley

Really beautiful card! Yes Wagner was very scary last night and I was not a fan of Cher but even I have to admit she sounded fab!

Adorable card. Sad story behind it. My thoughts go out to you.
I too thought Cher was good, was dissapointed with the lush Matt, and my favorite in SCD was Natalie and Scott again, but Gavin Henson is so dissapointing every week.
Who will go? Please let me have time to watch it amongst the Trick or Treaters!!
Love Debbiexx

Hi Vicky

A lovely card in memory of your Nan. Shame there has to be such a sad story behind such a beautiful card.

Have a good night.

Hi Vicky this is such a beautiful card in memory of your Nan. Your papers are gorgeous and I love your ribbon and your pearls. I also loved Cher last night and was amazed at how well she could sing - Wagner must go he can't sing and isn't even entertaining to watch. I loved Ann and Anton last night especially when he spun her around and lifed her up. Off to brave the elements now but at least the rain has stopped. Have a good evening. Sarahxx

Hi Vicky, what a beautiful card and very appropriate for breast cancer awareness month. (I'm sure your Nan would love it and be very proud how talented you are!) I lost my mum to breast cancer 22 years ago so it's close to my heart too. Luv Trish x
