Here is a card I made using the lovely skech over on the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog. For my card I have used the Tilda from the Winter Club Kit and the lampost is from the Christmas collection. I have coloured both the images with ProMarkers using the following colours...
Ruby (Coat , Boots & Hat)
Vanilla (Gloves & Tights)
Metallic Silver/Rose Pink (Bell)
Cool Grey 4/Gold (Lampost)
Pastel Blue (Shadow)
The papers are KI Memories Love Elsie "Noel", with buttons by Doodlebug and the sentiment and other stamped images are by Kelly Panacci and Hampton Art respectively. Finally I added Stickles for the snow and Sakura clear glitter gel to Tilda's hair.
I had a lovely day with the family yesterday, and came home with something incredibly precious. My Dad let me have my Mum's engagement and eternity rings. Now neither have huge financial value, but their sentimental value is priceless. The engagement ring is mis-shaped and the band has thinned and the eternity ring is missing a small diamond. I have decided to take them to the jewellers to be cleaned and the engagement ring reshaped and the band strengthened. Dad also let Georgia have one of Mums necklaces...a little 9ct gold ragdoll (I am sure it was one I got for her) and Georgia says it is very precious and that she will take great care of it...bless her. My Sister also got one of Mum's rings...a band with carved letters spelling "Love"...also in need to strengthening due to years of wear...but it was a ring my Sister has always loved and seemed fitting that it went to her. I stood with Dad reminising, and both of us were close to tears. This year will be our 5th Christmas without her, and we still miss her as much as ever....does that feeling ever leave you?
So I am busy getting things ready for the Christmas Bazaar at Georgia's school.....I am in the crafting area...no surprise there...LOL
