Judith Retirement Card
Also 2nd DT Card

This is the card I made for my friend Judiths retirement she has worked for Morrisons for 19 Years, although she has only been at the Cleethorpes branch for 15 Years. We have been work collegues for 11 Years so it really saddens me that she has had to retire, we have had some really good times & quite a few laughs and then I helped her through a really bad patch as best as I know how. It has been a really busy month for her 1st her 60th birthday, then the week of her retirement her Mum was taken Ill & sadly passed away Satureday which should have been her 1st day as a pensioner and she was really looking forward to it now she'll only have her Dad to care for. RIP Sybil xx

No cards today.

I am not putting any cards up today as the ones I have done are for the One Stop Shop blog and one is for my firends retirement on Friday. Judith and I have been friends for the duration of my employment at Morrisons we have done the whole thing friends do laugh, fall out, make up the usual thing. This week I am on holiday so I wont be there when she finishes, it will be a very sad week for her and she wanted me to go see her but I know I will be as upset as she will be. I will miss her quite a lot from work but I will be going round for my tea now and again when Tony goes back to working days, I wish herlots of Love and a much easier life than she had at work thats all I am posting at the minute as I can feel myself welling up again.

This is the card I made for the One Stop Craft challenge as a Guest Designer which I was dead chuffed about. I should have been doing it next week but the lady who should have done it this week lost her dear little Nephew Alfie, and as it turns out myself and some of my bloggy friends know her from Running With Scissors Blog. I hope I have done her proud as this weeks blog is dedicated to Lizzy who has been in my thoughts all day. Also before I close this I have to thank both Jane & Lorraine who was a great inspiration to me & who I brain wacked with my Ideas, so thanks Lorraine & Jane.

This is another card that I love, it's a paper piecing one I made for a challenge but I missed the date (I'll email it instead).
This is a Tilda stamp which I stamped then Glimmer misted in Pearl then sprayed with my Sticky Fingers mister, I also Sticled the edge of top layer around Tilda. I then distressed it Stamped swirls from Hot off The Press stamps I used Nesties to matt & layer, the paper was a freebie with a craft mag, the lace & Prima flower is from RWS & the Pearls & rose from Grimsby Crafts.
Hi here I have gone back to basics mainly to use up old stash stuff & I thought it would be fun to make a swinging card (although you can't see it moving it does).
I used a circle card from Create & craft (Alan & Barry days)
Peel offs
Pearls from RWS
Ribbon & paper from stash
Moorehead Decoupage
