A new challenge and a sad goodbye ...

Hello ....
It's a wet, windy and cold afternoon here in Liverpool ... a perfect day for getting creative ... and I discovered a new challenge blog .... Let's Craft and Create ... and this week the challenge is "One for the boys" ... now where have I heard that ... So anyway, I know I have a good few male birthdays coming up and it's always good to make a start and even better to support a new blog ... Thus I made 2 cards for the challenge today ... "Just a note"



Feeling in a digital mood ... I used beautiful papers from Vinnie Pearce ... Art papers and ATC cards 


The sentiment stamp is from Anita's and the seam binding from my friend Kirsty ... I did have a problem with my "Brother" ... sewing machine that is .... it didn't want to sew so much as chew  but I've hopefully sorted it ....


And next up ... "Soar" ... using Websters Pages ... and a some paper from a free kit at The Shabby Princess (Seasonal Sampler) .... 



I cut some of those sweet balloons out and pop dotted them to give some dimension ... the Soar ticket is from Tim Holtz ... 

On a sad note ... I noticed today when doing my blog hopping ... that sweet Danni Reid of Dannisdoodles has decided to step away from blogging ... this came as a massive shock ... (well to me anyway) she is such a talented and inspiring crafter who I have admired followed for the longest time.... I have no idea what has prompted this but I will say a prayer for her ... she will be sadly missed ... if you get the chance perhaps you can check out her blog and maybe leave her some love ... my heart tells me she could use some ...
Till soon

Your bird card is absolutely lovely! Sorry the Brother was trying to eat him. Sounds like we have bird issues. LOL! I know my story was not for faint at heart. I need to put a warning on there. I adore your hot air balloon card! Great ticket sentiment to match! I am flabbergasted at Danni's need to step away a bit too. I am going to being saying prayers for her. I will miss her so!
