I live in Spalding in Lincolnshire (UK). I am married to my soul mate Nick ( who likes to joke about how much each of my cards have cost me to make) & have had 2 children. Holly who is a beautiful daughter but has a temper to match her red hair. Unfotunately her sister Ashleigh died in Dec 07 aged 3 weeks from a rare liver disease & heart problems. She is always in our thoughts & missed by all of us.
I've been crafting now for about 2 years. I am also trying scrapbooking!! I have made many friends through craft & hope to make many more. I also work as a Special Needs 1-2-1 teaching assistant at my daughters primary school so my crafting is my break from the real world...
I have created this card for my father in law's birthday. Unfortunately he is losing the plot big time at the moment and is starting to forget family and those close to him - 3 sons and daughter. (he thinks they are the hired help - gardeners and drivers!!!). Yes it's sad but what do you do he's well into his 80's now. Anyway less of the doom and gloom on to my card, which was created using the sketch at Papertake weekly challenge. I really enjoy using sketches at the moment.
I have used the following:
Penny Black Slap stick cling - Fly away, Stampin up - Sentiment & Kelly Panacci - Faux stitching
Cosmo Cricket - Earth Love paper & kraft paper to make label
