Not much going on here.  No crafting as just so busy due to recent events.




I did receive this lovely bookmark and beautiful bird as a swap.  The bright colours cheered me up.




Happy WOYWW.

My Dear Dad

Very suddenly my dear dad passed away on Tuesday morning (7th October, 2014).  Whilst he turned 88 on 21st September this year, he did very well for his age.  He still drove, went round the supermarket to get his shopping and pottered in his garden, which was the thing he loved most. 



This is a photo of dad in his Navy uniform.  He was one handsome young man.



My mum and dad on their wedding day 19th August, 1950.  They were married for just over of 63 years, before my mum passed away 31st October, 2013 after battling Dementia for over 7 years.  They are together again now.



 A photo taken earlier this year.



 I will miss you every day, but I have you always in my heart.

WOYWW 8th October

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk



I have three cards to show you, all for swaps.

This first one had to be distressed in some way, so I chose tearing the three backing papers.  The little embellishment is a ewe and the wording says Hello Ewe!



This swap had the them Funny Christmas.  I used a topper I got in a swap.  The eyes move:)  I used two backing papers and some Washi tape.



This card's theme was Friendship.  I used two backing papers and then stamped out the sentiment.  I also smudged the edge of the text card with ink.



Well I hope you all have a lovely WOYWW.

This is a Begonia I bought last week.  It's a lovely yellow/orange colour, but the photo doesn't show it at it's best.




Polly being a hussy.



Polly being more of a tart.



I can't possibly put up the photo of Polly being a trollop:) LOL

I hope you are all having a nice weekend.  Remember to hug your hound/s.

I only have one card today.  I have made more, but they are for birthdays and don't want to put them up till the birthdays are over.

This is another card I made using the freebies from the magazine.  The bow and pins were from my stash.


I hope you have a happy WOYWW.
