I've gone for the grid layout - six jars held together with yellow ribbon - so pretty. For my card I stamped six doilies in one shade of yellow and then added inside each doily another smaller doily in a darker yellow and finished off with a tiny circle in the centre in green. Hey presto - six flowers in a grid!! To finish off I added a simple sentiment. And this came together surprisingly quickly.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Dainty Doilies Large
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Card from stash
Today is a bit of a tough day for my Mum and me. My sister, Tracey, would have been 49 years old and she would also be celebrating her Wedding Anniversary today. Sadly, Tracey died earlier this year and it was such a shock to us all. My brother-in-law, Bert, is visiting with us today, bringing with him my nephew, Gareth, and Tracey's best friend, Catherine. Catherine's boys will be with her - and one of her sons, Callum, is my great-nephew (gosh that makes me sound old). And we're going to celebrate her life by remembering all the good times and having a bit of a party. Even though Tracey is no longer with us, she will always be in our hearts and sharing memories and being together is a great way to remember her.
That's all for now. I'll be checking back in later this evening - got to see what Mandi & Chrissie have in store for us this week. I think the monogram theme last week was rather tough - so I hope they're going to be kinder to us. And before I go - I must say Hi and welcome to Mary J - thanks for joining my band of followers!
