Jingle Belles Rock week 8

Hi! I'm back with a happy card for week 8 of the Jingle Belles Rock challenge and this week not only is it a sketch challenge ... but the sketch comes from Diana at Sketchy Thursdays ... which means that you can link up your card to both blog challenges ... one card 2 challenges ... and there is a prize on offer ... hop over and take a look ...
Here's the sketch ...


... and here is my card ...


It's dark here now so I apologies for the poor quality of my photos ... yes, I could have waited till tomorrow ... but the weather forecast is not that great again anyway... but at least my little penguins are having fun ...


They are actually rub ons ... the guy on the skis I put onto card first then fussy cut around him ... and I used flower soft for the 'snow' ... some glitter for the edging and everything else is from my stash ... So I've done 8 cards now for Christmas ... what about you?
Have a wonderful evening and thanks again for taking the trouble to leave your lovely comments ... I really do appreciate each and every one ...
Till soon

One of those weeks

Hello my friends ... I haven't been ignoring you ... honestly ... it's just been a funny old week ... The work I am having done here is taking much longer than anticipated and is really getting me down ... the guy doing it is nice enough but takes more cigarette breaks than anyone I've ever known ... I don't want to complain to his boss in case the work suffers even more ... what's a girl to do?
After my posting to you on Wednesday I heard that a friend from Thursday Club had died suddenly ... It upset me so much ... This wonderful lady (and her husband) had for many years, volunteered their love and time to the running of the club and to the caring of the group ... Kind people who gave from their hearts ... Loss is something one never gets accustom to ...
I threw myself into creating ... not really knowing what to do ... but knowing I needed to put my hands to work and turn my thoughts towards beauty ... to ease my heavy heart ... I made one of my book boxes ... added a few little things to finish it off today with some beautiful gifts from my friend Stella ... Yep, I got Happy mail this morning ... a belated birthday gift of treasures ... so prettily wrapped and so heartwarming ...



Beautiful ribbons, the most adorable handmade pins, clear cut frames and a cute little album ... and of course a handmade card filled with love ... I just had to put some of that ribbon on my box and one of those little pins ...



 ... I was thinking that maybe I will enclose a matching handmade album ...


Somewhere for the group, the friends and helpers to put down their memories ... their unspoken words
to this 'Special' lady


A piece of comfort for the family to hold onto ... something to let them know just what a much loved
 lady Vi was ...


Till soon my friends ... keep safe
