My Good friend Kell pointed out that The Stamp Spot were doing a DT call and said I should apply! She is forever encouraging me to apply for DT spots lol. Marcia P from the stamp spot is opening a online craft store called The Stamp Spot which opens in July you can click here to check out the store and all the gorgeous products. So anyway Marcia has set a sketch for the DT application which closes on the 17th July! Below is the sketch and then the card I have made. I hope you like. Thanks for looking.

I used a kit from The Scrappin Kats the only thing thats not from the kit is my sarah kay stamp! I used my copic chao markers and I just dont think I have mastered how to colour with them just yet, will have to keep practicing, you tube has some great vids on how to colour with them.

So here is the layout I used, an dthis is the card Keesh made me.
And here is my version using party hearty!

A Sad couple of weeks

Some of you know my Dad has been sick battling cancer, last Tuesday he went into hospital and sadly he passed away Thursday. My two sisters and myself held his hand as he left this world, it was incredibly hard but also lucky as we didnt get the chance to say goodbye to our Mum when she passed away 2 years ago very suddenly at age 53. Yesterday Was our Dads funeral and it was such a hard day and also just didnt seem fair, it felt like only yesterday that we were there doing the same thing for our Mum. I am so honoured to have known and loved my Mum and Dad and I have so many wonderful memories that I will cherish forever. I wanted to share just a couple of pics of my Dad as a tribute to his recent Passing. I also want to send out a HUGE thank you to all my family, friends who have supported my sisters and I and another thank you to my Stampin up family who have showed support in so many ways, with hand made cards, phone calls, and lovely emails.

This is my Dad and his dog Daisy (who I think she thinks she is human as she slept in bed with him everynight since Mum died and even gets a roast chook at the dinner table) This was a family Holiday in Halls Gap we took in July 2008. This is my Dad with me and my sisters.
Proud Poppy with all his grandkids, who will miss their poppy John very much!
This is my gorgeous Mum & Dad who will be in my heart and memories forever xoxo
