Sketch n Stash...........

Morning peeps hope you all had a wonderful weekend, bit of a blur again for us as we went to visit my Aunt again in hospital but it was a sad journey as we had to say our goodbyes to her. The doctor has only given her a few days now so I know that that will be the last time we see her but at least my Mum got to say her goodbyes as well......on a brighter note though she made 99 years and was as sharp as a pin, living in her own home, an inspiration to the rest of the family.

Today sees the start of another challenge at Sketch n Stashand the sketch this week is by Julie.

My Mums Crafts shop have kindly donated £10

For my card I have used an image from Saturated Canary, which was a freebie and oh so pretty, I have used papers from First Edition and coloured the image in with Prismas.........must get my paints out but I find it so relaxing just colouring in with my grown up My old stash are my flowers and the newest is my image and liquid pearls which I had never used before but I do like the effect that you get with the different sizes that you can create, just don't think I'd manage to get three looking the same though.

I am sorry for not getting around many blogs again this week but I do appreciate all of your lovely comments and they have certainly kept me going .......many thanks to to all.
hugs n smiles

Hi Daniele
I am so sorry to read your news. In May I lost my dear Uncle (my Aunt has Alzheimer's and as they have no children you can imagine the bond myself and family have with them). I am so glad you managed to say your goodbyes and spend time with her.
Onto a brighter note - your adorable card with that image coloured to perfection.
Wishes to you.

Gorgeous card and loving the beautiful image.
Sorry to hear your news about your aunt but at least you got there in time which must have been a help to your mother. Your aunt certainly sounds an extraordinary woman. This generation has loads of guts and personality. Annette x
