Winter ...

Hello there ...
It's a cold snowy day here and Spring seems a long way off ... 

Earlier this week I heard from a dear friend to say her father had passed away ... my friend and I met on my first day of preschool ...  a long long time ago ... her little sister joined us some years later and we have kept in touch all these years ... 
Their Dad was a lovely man and very much loved by his girls ... But I know he will be with their Mum now and that will give them some comfort ...

I used the La Blanche stamp again to make a card for each of the girls - unfortunately the weather conditions make photographing such hard work ... Not enough light anywhere in my home


I stamped one in Fabrico Ultra Marine ink and one in PTI Ocean Tides ink and added some glitter


... I also stamped some left over card in the same colours and cut out butterflies with a PTI die


I guess the upside of this weather is that I get to spend more time in my craft room using up those bits and pieces ... Sometimes I think it would just be nice to hibernate till Spring comes along ...

I hope you have a lovely weekend ... I have no plans as yet but if the roads are not to bad I guess DH and I will take a trip out ... maybe a little retail therapy to chase away the winter blues 

Take care

Till soon

Your cards are lovely, Ros, that rose stamp is just over the top! Sorry about your weather, you know spring is just around the corner, think of all those beautiful flowers blooming in your garden. Thankfully my headache is gone and my head has only ideas to think about today! Have a wonderful Friday, wish we lived close, we could craft together and you could come to tea!

Beautiful~beautiful cards...I just might have to have that stamp. It is still snowing here today, but I have to venture out (don't want to), but there are a couple things I want to do...hopefully next week will be better, it has been sub zero temps here, and next week to have a 50's day!! Have a nice weekend and stay warm and use up some more of those bits, you have been creating some wonderful cars with them!!

Those cards are perfect and beautiful too. I know what you mean about hibernating, but spring is not too far away
The light is really bad for photos, my house is dark at the best of times. Are you having any issues uploading photos?
Have fun

This sentiment is heartwarming for a sad occassion. Your friend will need you and your card is showing you will be there for her and her sister. I;ve got that rose stamp from la Blanche too; it looks gorgeous on these cards. Lovely job Ros; it shows your love and care for them...
