Sad farewell.............

Morning fellow bloggers wishing you all a very happy new year, hopefully this one will be a little less sad as we said goodbye to so many people. Unfortunately my Mum was one of those people, she passed away in my arms on Sunday 18th December, she has struggled with dementia for many years but we refused to accept it and carried on with life as near normal as possible with her going to garden centres, cream teas and play areas with Zach, my Tuesdays won't be the same any more especially come September when Zach goes to school full time. I guess I'll just catch up with my crafting that has been put on the back burner these past few months. I did forget to post this last Christmas card that I made with the new stamp CI...462 large Christmas tree.

I just stamped the background with the new snowflake stamps using broken china and chipped sapphire and added splashes of water to soften the colours, The snowflakes are wooden toppers that I brought in Sainsbury's and then used frantage and a gem stone on the top to finish.
This year I hope to get back into doing challenges as I neglected my blog so much as well as catching up with you guys.
Hugs and Smiles
