♥ Believe ♥

This is another one of my newest stamps, again by Alesa Baker {Impression Obsession }, its called snow deer...... how sweet is that :)
I used Woodware kraft card for base, spotted ribbon ~ East of India, embossed white card and used rectangle plain and scalloped nesties. The sentiment is a chipboard sticker from £ shop :)
Hope all your Christmas shopping is going well, mine isn't :( cant quite get motivated and its 6 months today from my Dad died, so feeling sad, its a hard time for anyone who has lost loved ones.

♥ In memory of my lovely Aunt ♥

Hi there, long time from I posted and its all been sad news :( Im just taking life a day at a time and its so difficult, but I know with The Lord's help I will get there.
My post today is in memory of my Aunt Ger. Ger's lovely grandchildren {my cousins} are having a fashion show next month to raise money for the Irish Cancer society. They all live in a beautiful village on the west coast of Ireland.
If you would like to donate a little something for this worthy cause please click HERE .
Its a safe and secure site so you can read all about it on the website my cousins have set up in memory of their Gran.
Ger loved!!!!!! card making and rubber stamps, totally addicted to it and was my special friend aswell as Aunt.

More sad news, my heart is breaking!!

Thank you all so much for your comforting words you all took time to leave for me, I read every single one and cant believe how many nice people out there that I have never met care so much.
I have more sad sad news to share and I haven't the words to describe my grief at this very moment. My very close Aunt died yesterday evening of terminal cancer, she was only diagnosed 5 weeks ago and is now gone, she lived in the west coast of Ireland and I got to speak to her over the phone as her daughter held the phone to her ear to tell her I loved her, this was just the night before, and my mum was with her when she passed away in her own home in a hospital bed. I travel on saturday to her funeral and she was a very popular lady and well loved.
I also encouraged her to take up card making and rubber stamping, so the two of us over the last 8 years spent time going around the craft shops and getting so excited at any new rubber stamps we would have bought.
In 10 months I have lost my grandfather, my father and now my dear aunt, I loved these people so much.
Take care xx
