"My Sister my Friend"

Saturday 11th August 2012
Good Morning and welcome!

The sun is up, the sky is blue, looks like another good day.  I got loads done yesterday, no crafting though!!
Two loads, washed, dried, ironed and all put away.  Cleaned some windows, had to leave the ones the sun was shining on, they never clean the same do they??

As some of my early followers will know my "Sister my Friend" has had a rough time this year to say the least.  However Hazel had her last Chemo a week past Tuesday, she is feeling better this week and has set herself goals to achieve each day.  Hazel`s greatest goal throughout has been, to be well enough to get on our annual holiday to Dalyan, Turkey together.  Nearly there Hazel,  good for you, only a few more weeks.  Hazel still has Radio Therapy to have when we get back.  We live approx 35 miles from each other, we phone and text every day, we see each other as much as we can but I still like to send her cards.  This is the latest one I sent, Hazel checks my Blog everyday so I had to wait till I knew she had got it.

Base card approx 5x7 Brown Co-Ordinations card
Pink card from stock
Backing paper a free download from Crafter`s Companion ages ago
Sentiment done on the computer
Rose made using Spellbinders Classic Circles Die
Leaves from Bitty Blossoms Die
I gave the card a slight "Shabby Chic" look
The brown rose is the very first attempt using the circle dies

That`s it for today
Bye! for now and thank you for popping in I really do appreciate it

  3. Pretty & Pink, love the roses :) I hope your sister continues to heal. I have three sisters and they are all precious. Shirley x

  4. Hi Patricia!! Me again..

    I'm so sorry, I just realised I commented on the wrong card!! I think it was because you'd linked to your blog rather than your card... not to worry..

    This is a superb pink creation and I love it.... and I also LOVE the roses you've created!! WOWW!! I'll certainly be trying those out!

    I lost my sister over three years ago now.... we were very close, and I miss her every day...... that bond is so strong.... I'm so glad you treasure Hazel.

    Looking forward to seeing you in future In The Pink challenges!!
