Thinking of you....

 Hello...

I've tried to write this post several times and then abandoned it. 
 Over the years my blog has been my diary of sorts... I've shared cards and handmade items, holidays and photos. Many fun times and some not so fun... 

Today I have a card to share that was probably the hardest one I've had to make yet... Not because it was a difficult technique or anything like that, but simply because it is one I never envisaged having to make... 


You see last week I got a call to say my friend Jeanie had passed away suddenly... Only a few weeks before I posted a photo of us together having met up by chance in Spain... I said it was one of the best things that happened and it was. I couldn't have known it was going to be the last time we would be together and laugh like crazy school girls as we always did when we were together...


My heart is broken, the loss is overwhelming but I do know that somewhere in heaven there's a party going on...

Ros, sorry to her about your friend :(

Oh Ros, how sad for you to lose a dear friend so suddenly and this card says it all and really beautifully too. The deep red of the rose gives great contrast with the bright WOW background, and the little gold embossed heart together with the sentiment on the vellum are perfect to finish it, and love the clear gems like sweet little dew drops. Stunning design too. x

Oh, Ros, I'm so sorry. There are no words. I'm only glad you were able to see her one last time and feel the joy of her company. One just never knows. To lose any of my dearest friends would be like losing a close family member. You made a truly beautiful card, just as she deserves. I can see the love in it. Take care.

So Sorry, Ros. It is so hard to lose a very close friend. As difficult as losing a close family member...especially when it is unexpected. I am so glad you had your recent time together in Spain. What a wonderful gift. Love and Hugs...

I'm finally getting back to visiting blogs, Ros, and I'm so sorry to have returned to this heartbreaking news of Jeanie's sudden death. I feel like your unexpected reunion with her in Spain was predestined so you would always have that last giggly joyful memory of her. Your card is absolutely exquisite. Lots of love, Darnell
