Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
Just wanted to start by saying sorry that I have been a bit quiet recently. One of our cats, Claude, suddenly became very ill last week and we had to make the heart breaking decision to have him put to sleep yesterday. Our pets become such a big part of our lives, it's so hard to say goodbye to them. So, we shed a lot of tears yesterday, but at least he is at rest now and no longer in pain and we have lots of special happy memories.
Anyway, today is the start of a new Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge.
This week we are onto sketch number 15 and our optional theme is use handmade flowers.
For this challenge we are sponsored by the fabulous Ooh La la Creations
The prize is a CD of the winner's choice and some bling!
I decided to ink up one of my older Penny Black Stamps. Obviously, I made this card before Claude became ill, now I will dedicate it to him, he brought so much happiness into our lives.
