Happy & Sad xxx

Good morning to everyone I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and looking forward to a Happy New Year just hope 2012 is a much better year!!!

Last Tuesday the 27th December my Daughter got married it was luckily a beautiful day even though it turned cold after lunch there was no rain and we had a beautiful day up at Whitley Hall in Sheffield.

Here is the card I made for them and yes its a Magnolia with Magnolia papers lots of gold going on as well!

Coloured the image with Pro Markers and added some Glamour dust the shoes are red because if you look down the photos you will see Rochelle's wedding shoes!! lol

Found this beautiful sentiment stamp at The Craft Box and I just stamped and embossed it around the edges with gold.

Lots of flowers, beads and a gold corner from my stash.

Also used some of my new dies for some different texture and effects.

Rochelle's Dorothy Shoe's which are just fab!

A picture of my youngest daughter Danielle with Summer, Dusty and Bernard the house rabbit on Christmas day!

Now for the sad news I have decided to step down from my DT positions on the Crafty Purple Frog & Sweet Pea Stampers challenge blogs as at the moment I cannot give them 100% and feel that its only fair to let someone else have a chance. I would like to thank them for all there love and support to me over the last few months I have so appreciated everything you have done for me and will miss working with such wonderful ladies!!!

You will have noticed that my blog is very quiet at the moment and that is because I have very personal things going on at home at the moment and even though I have been off work for the last couple of months not much crafting has taken place as most of the time I can't face it or just sit looking at my stuff with no idea what to do!! lol I even contemplated buying my Christmas cards but eventually managed to do them.

Hope to sort myself out soon and start to comment on all your beautiful work again! I have been having a nosy from time to time just not leaving you much deserved comments!!!

Any way think that's long enough hope you all have a fab evening and Happy New Year to everyone lets hope that 2012 is going to be a better year!!!!

Love & Hugs Chanelle xxxxx
