Hello Everyone, I hope you are well, but if not I'm sending out kind thoughts that you will feel better soon.
I want to thank everyone who had some lovely comforting words about the loss of our friend Ian whose funeral was yesterday. It still seems very unreal to me, I think the shock was so deep. Alistair was asked to say a few words and he had been working on it all week, he did really well, having to cut an hours worth of words down to just five minutes was no mean feat. He had everyone laughing and couldn't have given Ian a more fitting and loving tribute of their friendship. Ian's family were so pleased and I was so proud of him, especially as he had to wipe away a good few tears. Ian's son and daughter have asked him to go walking with them next week, they feel such a connection to their dad through Alistair and all his stories. So, it's just getting on with it for family and friends now.
I am joining Erika of Snappycrafts and Patricia of Summerhouse Crafts in posting an oldie;
It's a cracker, is it not. It's one of the first cards I ever made, long before I had dies or markers or even decent card blanks.
I was buying like mad from Create and Craft and had watched a programme from Crafter's Companion, showing a CD of Poppets, can't remember the proper name at the moment. It's all from the CD except for the awful red card and the mirri card. All the images from the CD are however very sweet, shame about the design. Everybody has to start somewhere.
I'll bid you all good night, it's quite late now and I'm working tomorrow. Make sure you have a really good weekend, whatever you're doing.
