A Windy Day



Sketch Saturday

The Sketch on
Sketch Saturday this week is really fabulous for using up odds and ends and the DT girls have really made some beautiful cards so pleased I could join in this week.



Monday again where is this year going, hope you all had a great weekend. I may not be blogging quite as much this week as it is Mums birthday on Saturday and I have decided to make her a memory book, she is now at the stage of this horrible decease where it is getting hard for her to remember members of the family so I have been gathering photos of family and friends and hope to pull them all together and try to make a story on each page. Hope it turns out as I have envisaged it.

Todays card for Sketch Saturday Challenge is using my favourite of the new
Elizabeth Bell Stamps from Sugar Nellie, she has been coloured with Distress Inks nd H20's and mounted on K&Co papers. The flowers are made with Retro Flower Punch (medium) and a little paper rose. I threaded some beads I found in last weeks tidy up to beading wire and add a charm at the end.



I have used the same papers inside and used the BSBP and another image of the lovely little girl.



Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

This is gorgeous Jacqui - I love these colours that you have used, they are just perfect with this windswept girl. I went to Funkykits on Saturday morning (just 5 mins from my house!!) to buy this one, but it is out of stock at the moment - should be available later in the week, I think she is adorable.

Have a great week,

How beautiful Jacqui! I am waiting for this stamp....reminds me of a Precious Moments image! I hope all is going well with the memory book for your Mum.

Happy Birthday to your mom Jacqui!
Your card is a picture of perfection! I love the soft colors and the image is a cutie!
I hope you have a beautiful day and I'm sure that your photo album will turn out the way you visioned it.
My mom is in the later stage of Alzheimer's and no longer recognizes any of us. This is quite painful and I imagine your thoughts are the same.
Try to have a great day dear and your mom is going to love her card.

Risa:)
