Thinking of you

Having struggled to catch some decent light, in order to take clear photographs of my projects, for what seems like forever, this morning there is bright, bright, sunshine. Naturally, I have nothing ready that I need to photograph. I also sense that if I go off an busy myself now, the sun will tantalisingly disappear by the time I am ready with my camera! However, it is nice to have a break from the endless rain.

Today I am sharing a card that is one of my Design Team samples using this month’s new releases from the Gecko Galz. Make sure you buzz on over and take a look and don’t forget to pick up the new freebies whilst you’re there.


The image is from the Darling Girls ephemera collection and the paper is from the It’s Not Easy Being Green paper set. I’ve added in some raspberry coloured card to create mats and layers. Everything has been inked with Vintage Photo distress ink.



The sentiment is from Darkroom Door’s All Occasions rubber stamp set.


The ribbon is from my stash and picks up the colours in the image perfectly.



Now sadly, there is a reason I am sharing this with you today. Dear little Knox, is currently in a coma which is heart breaking news. Thankfully, he is not in pain and is surrounded by his loving family. So this is for all the Clay family – please know that our thoughts are with you at this difficult time x.

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. I almost am speechless, tears running down my face after watching the video of Knox. How very sad for him but how blessed his family has been for having him in their lives. My heart aches for all of them. I had never heard of this disorder but have a grandson born with a Chromosome disorder feel their pain. We are lucky as he is in good health but it was touch and go for months and the outcome was uncertain on how he would progress. I will light a candle of healing for Knox and his family and it will continue to burn through this part of his journey. Thank you for sharing and for all you do for disorder.

    Well what can a say another gorgeous project. I love the entire feel you created especially how soft and romantic the image appears. Would love some of that ribbon…it’s fantastic. Again thanks for sharing both your project and your update on Knox.

    • Bless you Sandra and sorry to cause you upset. Your lighting a candle will be hugely appreciated by Knox’ family at this darkest time. Sadly, Knox slipped away earlier today and now has his butterfly wings to fly free. Precious Knox touched my world in a way he will never know. Hugs xxx

      • Mrs.Beez this truly is sad news for the family and yourself. Hard to accept the death of an adult unbearable to do so with your child. I can’t even fathom the pain they are in right now having him taken away so early in life. All one can do is know he is in a better place with his glorious butterfly wings securely attached. The story just pulled at my heart strings due to having my sweet Reilly being born with a condition, so I know what this family and all the others have gone through. The candle, with his name carved on it and a tiny butterfly, is burning brightly on my altar and will continue to do so until it burns itself out. You are blessed to have him touch your life so profoundly. Hugs.

        • Thank you Sandra, I love the sound of your candle and I will pass on your words to Knox’ family. Hugs for precious Reilly x

  2. Beautiful card and I do love how the ribbon does pick up the colors in the image so beautifully. So sad to hear about Knox, but I thank you for opening my eyes to this disease, I will continue to pray for all the little butterflies in his big extended family. ~Diane
