A Blue Day

Hello there ...
It's a sombre day in my city today as we say farewell to Cilla Black a homegrown talent who died recently... The funeral is only 5 minutes away from where I live and will be attended by a host of celebrities...
Cilla started her career here in the Cavern alongside The Beatles so I grew up to the sounds of the Mersey Beat ... It seems like the end of an era...

On a happier note, 
I have a card to share that I made to send to one of my blog friend across the pond using the WPlus9 Doodle Buds Stamps once again and some soft sponging


The stencil I used is by Memory Box called Wave


As you can see I cut the flowers from card that I had stencilled on too


I hope my friend likes it ....

Have yourselves a lovely day

Till soon

It must have been quite a day in your part of the world on Thursday. Gorgeous card, I love the colours and I love that flower stamp and thinking I may need to add it to my collection!

I had seen an old performance video of Cilla Black on Facebook recently and then heard of her recent death. What a voice, and what a sad loss. But your card is absolutely lovely and has made me smile.

The bad part about getting older is the loss of people that have been a part of our lives.
LOVE this card, the stenciling, the image the colors! Totally FAB!

LOVE this one!! The blues are so soothing and those flower images are the coolest :)

Stella said...

These soft soft shades of blue and green are soothing and calming. Your flowers are a perfect example of paper piecing.
It's hard to say goodbye to someone who has been a part and/or influence in your life. Take care sweetie...
