Think Pink

Crafting for all Seasons
has a very special challenge this month
"Think Pink"
in memory of their founder
who sadly lost her battle with cancer earlier this year
I was fortunate enough to get to know Dawn through
our mutual love of crafting
Friendship Ties - Sylvia Zet for SCACD
Spellbinders die
DP from stash
Anything Goes - Shaped but not Square
Cuttin and Stamping - Shaped cards
Die Cutting Divas - Over the rainbow
Sweet Stamps - Spring
Cancer touches all of us at some part of our lives
I have family members who have beaten it, others who sadly like Dawn were not quite so fortunate
and a dear friend who is currently battling it for a third time!
So please join in this very special

Spaced out

Calamity Jane strikes again!
I have managed to hurt my hip, meaning that sitting crafting is a tad uncomfortable
so when Ben asked me to make an 18th card I did my best
but after 3 failed attempts I admitted defeat and delved into my card stash!
therefore, here is another
"one I prepared earlier" cards!!
confession time
I made this card several years ago whilst designing dies
(I designed both the Spaceman & Alien)
For all those in Blighty
Have a wonderful Bank Holiday
enjoy the sunshine!!

Flying visit

This little guy has been on my shelf for ages and I realised he had never been posted
Dragon Luck by Sweet Pea Stamps
Quite handy really as I have been out of my studio again!
Some of you may already be aware that our Westie was diagnosed with a terminal condition in March
well, we recently had to make a weekend emergency dash to the vets...........
.......since then I have been back and forth to the vets like a yo-yo
thankfully the anti-biotics have worked and her temperature has come down.
Not sure how long she has left with us
but for now she's pretty contented - asking for fuss and begging for treats!!!
Thanks for dropping by
