It's my Party

Hi friends.
As I mentioned last week I was at the funeral of my friends mum only to be told when I got home that another friend sadly lost her mum. Well that funeral was today. It was such a beautiful service and  I don't know how anyone can keep composed enough to give a eulogy but she did and how proud I am of her. It was in difficult circumstances but it was so lovely to get together with three close friends. We have been together through marriages, divorces, births and I guess the rites of passage inevitably sees us together at funerals. 

As I do when I am feeling emotional - I make a card. It is LOTV's It's my party. So love this image.

I used this image when it was my step daughters birthday last year because this is so Kayleigh.
It never took very much to get in a strop. Thankfully it didn't take much to get her out of one either. 

Will somebody slap me and tell me "you have more crafty bits in your stash - you don't always have to use that butterfly"!!! Would be difficult though cos I love it. 

Just for a change I am going to list items used at the end of the post. 

Craftwork cards - card blank
LOTV - It's my Party
Coloured with - Copic Markers, Pro Markers and Flexi markers
Nitwit collections - backing papers
Memory box - Butterfly on ribbon - available from many on line stores
Tim Holtz - Butterflight border - bought at local craft shop

Thank you for stopping by. I am now going to view your wonderful blogs and make a comment or two. See you soon.
