 Hi Friends

Today would have been mums 101st Birthday!..If you read my last post you will know she was in hospital following surgery for a fractured hip. 

Sadly she passed away on Saturday , so she didn't quite make it to the 101 but I still feel I would like to share her card with you though................what better way to celebrate her life.

A new stamp...Pink Frog Chrysanthemum love this stamp. I coloured with Copics. Matt and Layers are cut with Phil Martin nesting dies.

So proud of her, such a great age.

Thank you for stopping by, and for all the lovely comments that you left on my last post...another card she sadly didn't get to see...along with several others.

Anyway that's it for today...short and sweet. We have just have a thunderstorm here! Hope it is sunny where you are. Take care everyone and have a good week.

Catch you all again soon

Crafty hugs

  1. Aww, Carole, I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve lost your Mum. I think your decision to share her card was the right one. I’ve only ever made two cards for people who were 100 but 101, what an achievement and I’m sure she would have loved your card, I do. I lost my Mum just as I was starting out making cards and most of them at that time were made on the computer. It always makes me feel a bit sad that she never saw any of my stamping. I’ll be thinking of you and I send you my love and a big hug. Take care, Sandra xx

  2. A lovely card Carole, so sorry to hear about Mum - mail you later. xx
