Sketch # 37 by Katharina

Well, it is the last day of the year already and a brand new one is just around the corner. I know for many of you it has been a testing year, one which you will be glad to see gone. For me, I have had a mixed year - some good some bad. I did start blogging though and that has allowed to me to meet so many wonderful and inspiring people.

Today is also a sad day for me. 10 years ago my little boy, Michael, sadly died. I do not know where the years have gone but I still miss him terribly. I think that maybe next year I will try my hand at scrapbooking - I have so many photos and it will be something nice to do I think.

So, onto my card. I have had 'Daisy' by Sugar Nellie for a couple of weeks and was so happy to be able to use her at last. Katharina has provided this wonderful sketch to follow and Daisy fitted perfectly in the middle of it. As I was colouring her I was trying to work out if she was thinking, angry or sad - hard to tell but I love her and can't wait to use her again.

I would just like to say a big thankyou to you all for commenting on my blog this year and for being my friend. I wish you and your families lots of love for the New Year.

Daisy coloured with Prismas, papers by K&Co, sentiment by Studio G, flowers from poppicrafts and also stash, ribbon and brads from stash.

Awe my darling,
Dad and I too are thinking so much of Michael today as we do often.
When I first viewed this card this made me think so much of you and your expression today reflecting what has been a very important part of your life.
As I said 10 years ago . . . he was a little flower lent not given . . . to bud on earth and bloom in heaven. He had the best parents possible as we have been blessed with a beautiful, caring daughter.

Lots of love,
Mum xxx
