My Sydney Regional Swap Card .....

I'm sorry it's been awhile since I last posted. Sadly, my Nan passed away on Sunday, September 11th. 10 years ago this is the date that changed the world. It has been a day of reflection and sorrow ever since. Now it has a lot more personal meaning to me. For those of you that have been following my blog - amazingly, DH's Grandmother is still with us, but they don't know for how much longer.

Now, onto nicer things :) I thought I would share with you the swap that I made for my very first Regional held in Sydney last weekend.

CASE'd myself with this one :) I just updated the flower to one from the current catalogue.

As always, I love reading your comments and if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask!

Oooh! I saw this IRL on Monday! My friend Jenny managed to nab one of these at regionals! It is such a pretty combination, Sandra! I am so sorry about your grandmother, my dear friend! I wish I could give you a big hug in person ... I can hear the sadness in your post! (I just sent an email ... so keep watching for that!) Hugs xxaxx

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother Sandra - very sad news, keep your chin up.

On a happier note I do love the colour combo you've used on this card :)

Hi Sandra,
Sorry to read about the passing of your nan. Nans are a very special part of your life. I hope you find comfort in all good memories of you nan. I like your creation.
