Just Like The Butterfly, You Too Will Awaken In Your Own Time ..... Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge #86

I hope you all had the most fantastic Christmas :)  Our's wasn't as bad as we expected it too be.  Yes, there were crying when certain pressie were opened, when we turned and expected Dad to be sat in the chair, when we remember their was someone special missing :(  But there just had to be laughinging too ... mainly at my expense!  

We let off a  shaped  for Dad, Christmas morning, that had us all in a panic and fits of laughter, when we thought it was going to get stuck on DD's TV aerial on the roof  :) ... we also decided that we'd let off 2 Chinese lanterns in the evening ... Rylee likes to send his Great-Grandad a light so he can see ... sigh, we lit it and sent it up .... it hit next doors wall and ended up stuck in a bush burning merrily away surprise ... the neighbour had left for Tokyo for a month that morning, which was pretty fortunate as I was trying desperately to climb her 3 foot wall rolling eyes .... Koree (1 year old grandbaby) found it hysterical, although we're not sure if it was cos everyone else was rolling on the floor at me!  I did manage to save the burning bush and extinguish the lantern.  The other lantern went up without a hitch and floated off to Dad angel

Claire is hosting the last challenge of 2011 at Sunday Sketch & Stamp with this fabulous sketch ....

I had the unfortunate job of making a sympathy card, worse still it was for a stillborn angel....

I used the Stitchy Bear image "In His Hands" which I thought fitted the bill perfectly ...

.... and a close up of the coloured image ....

  3. Blimey! I'm glad I don't live next door to you, it sounds like you're determined to try and burn your neighbour's houses down in one way or another!!
    Well done on getting throught Christmas, the first is always the worst.
    Your card, is beautiful, you have just the right note for such a sad occasion. The little turn up is a fantastic touch.
