Just havin' fun

I've been having some fun joining in some challenges over at The Creative Paper Trade Blog.

I just love everything about this place and couldn't resist and had to join in.

Here are a couple of cards - the first one is for the colour challenge and the second one is for the square challenge.

I have used all bits and pieces including my Handmade Daisy and the patterned papers are from Simple Stories which are up there with my all time fave papers.  The little note is from The Creative Paper Trail digi set - love it!!!

Thanks for popping in.

Hope all is well in your part of the world!!!

Craft Queen

Look at these cards I created for Craft Queen.

I was lucky enough to play with the Graphic 45 papers.

Nicole has made up some Card Kits with this gorgeous range so be sure to pop over for a visit.

I have been doing a lot of reflecting today - especially after being present at Lyn's funeral.

As the saying goes "life is too short" I thought why not start a little challenge. 

I have been pretty slack in Blogland these days - life gets so busy.

But - I thought about a little giveaway.

The challenge is to create a card with a "FRIEND" theme.

The idea of the challenge will be for you to pop back here with a link to your card and I will pop them up in a gallery for everyone to see.

The next part of the challenge will be to actually send this card to a friend.  Friends are such priceless things and I know for sure that I would be abosolutely lost without mine.

I will give everyone til the end of this month to enter the giveaway (draw will be a random one)- you may enter more than once.

Just leave a comment to this post and I will add entries as we go.

Have fun with this challenge.

Hope all is well in your part of the world.

Farewell dear friend

Today I will be saying farewell to another dear friend.  It really tugs on your heart when you have to say goodbye to someone.
Dear Lyn has been battling cancer for the last 3 years.  She was such a softly spoken, beautiful woman and friend.  A true inspiration to all who met her or knew her online.

A message goes out to all who are suffering with this terrible disease - you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Take time out today to do something that has been on your "to do list" - none of us know how long we have here on earth - make the most of it!!!

Huge hi to everyone.
