Sketch Saturday #30

Morning everyone

And a happy Saturday to you all......the last one before Christmas, can you believe it...only 5 more sleeps till the big day!!! Hope Santa brings you everything you wished for (only if you've been good though!!) and that you all have a fabulous time.
For me it's mixed emotions, tomorrow would have been my Dad's 70th birthday and with Christmas around the corner I'm sure there would have been much celebration, so it's a time to look back and remember the times with my Dad.....I still miss him every day.....and then pick myself up and shake myself down and look forward to some magical days with my DH and my gorgeously wonderful kids.

Anyway enough of this chatter, I'm getting all upset just typing a few words so back to the matter in hand. As it is Saturday, it can only mean one thing.....yeah that's right.....another fabulous sketch at Sketch Saturday . Jo has come up with yet another stunna and I had real fun playing with this one.

I couldn't face another Christmas card, so went for something a bit more cheery and full of colour, really need to start making my Christmas cards earlier next year so that a) I have them made it time and b) I'm not so fed up with does kinda take the shine of it a bit!!!

So here are the details of my card
  • Image: Tilda
  • Paper: I'm not sure....I think K&Co
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Sentiment: Studio g
  • Flowers, brads, ribbon and spacer beads from stash

Thanks to everyone who joined in last week and every other week, we all realise that time is precious to everyone at the moment, so if you do have a few spare moments this week and feel the need to chill, hope you will stop by and join in the fun with us

On behalf of everyone at Sketch Saturday and from all the DT I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by, have a super day

Such a gorgeous card Gill. I just love the colour combo you've chosen! I want to wish you a very merry christmas sweetie! It's only normal that you would think of your dad more during this time but when you do... try to think of all the good times you've had together, maybe that would give you a better feeling. Remember, your dad may be gone but he will always be in your heart. Enjoy your family sweetie!!

Gorgeous card Gill! I find there are times when I get a little emotional about not having my Mum and Dad around anymore but wonderful memories mean that we were fortunate enough to have wonderful parents! It is normal to shed a few tears! Have a Merry Christmas and all the best to you my friend in the coming year! Hugs Jeanette
