Knitting You Good Wishes!

Good Morning Blogger Friends, I hope you are all well this morning.  We have fog, but it is clearing up now, how,  I hate it, it's times like these I don't miss the car.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last card, I always look forward to reading them.

My last day off before the Christmas holidays and I am going to make the most of it by doing nothing, except going to see the Hobbit this afternoon.  I wish I'd managed to read it once again before going to see the film, it's been decades since I last picked up the book, but no doubt the story will come back to memory.

We're meeting friends for a bite of lunch in the Hospice, they have a lovely cafe and then going to the cinema.
Today is the anniversary of my mum's death and even although it's 8 years ago, the memories flood back as if it was yesterday.

This is my card for today;
What a pants photo sorry about that I'm not sure why it's turned out like this, just took the shot as I always do,
That's marginally better,  This is a Sugar Nellie digi stamp and I've coloured it with a mixture of Promarkers Flex markers, watercolour pencils and Promarkers. Background papers are First Edition Desert Blooms, co-ordination card, LOTV sentiment, WO roses, The Ribbon Girl butterfly charm, Memory Box butterfly, corner and trellis border dies, gems and Aurora sparkle glitter.
I think this is such a pretty little stamp and one that could be used for a number of occasions.

I would also like to enter this card into  http://www.sugarbowlblog.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/challenge-98-fionas-sketch.html

Well Ladies and Gentlemen is there are any out there reading this post, have a good day whatever your doing, wrap up well and I hope your weather is'nt too bad,

A wee HUG! I have thoughts of my mum just now as well. It would have been our mums birthday last Wed. Mum died quite a few years ago but there are always things that trigger memories.
