Card Sketch January #1

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

Welcome to Card Sketch Wednesdays! Hurrah for sketches, that's what I say! I was having one of those 'blast from the past' days the other day and went looking through my sketch files, and WOW that's a LOT of sketches! Over 2 years now I've been doing Sketch Wednesday, and loving every moment. Though that's also over 100 cards! Just think if we made a holiday card with the sketch every week, no mad rush in December! lol! That would be 52 cards ready for the holiday craziness, but where would the fun be it that? lol!

Anyway here is this weeks sketch

This weeks card from me is a very personal one, it's the one I sent to Beverley's family. I want to thank everyone for the emails, and comments. It's such a blessing to know how much she was loved in the crafting community. Her passing has really made me sit back and think about what I want from life, to appreciate the small things, and most importantly not to waste a single minute!

Di, That is a lovely card for Beverley's family.

Although I did not know her personally I first became aware of her through your site and also through other sketch blogs. She was a very creative lady and her work was inspiring. I have been touched by how many people have mentioned her passing on their blogs, her sudden death has been a big shock in our community and such a terrible loss.

I left a message on her blog last night and have had a lovely message from her Dad. It has made me look inwards too and re-assess my life goals and priorities.

Sending you big hugs on the loss of your friend xxx

I love this sketch Di! But I don't think I've done it justice with my card. Definitely one to try again though.
