Sweet Faith

The Birdbrains are crying, and the Pigwits bow their heads with respect.

Our beautiful, kind, and generous friend, Faith Skrdla, owner and illustrator of From The Heart Stamps, has passed away after a courageous battle with brain cancer. This lovely lady touched the hearts of all of us on the design team, past and present, and although we may not have met in person, I will always regard Faith as my friend.

I joined the From The Heart design team, first as a guest designer for April & May in 2014.
I was then asked to be a full time member, and I was delighted to stay on with this group of talented and caring ladies. It truly is like being part of a family. We are all so saddened by Faith's passing, such is the love and respect that you have for online friends.

There is a GoFundMe campaign to support her husband and children, should you wish to donate.

Thinking of Nate, their children, and the family.
Rest peacefully sweet Faith, I will remember your kind spirit always. xx

Sweet Horse #2 (cute ink)

I was asked to make a bright and cheerful birthday card, and as I haven't used this image for a while (and I loved the layout I used before too), I chose to case a previous card that I made a couple of years ago...

This image is called Sweet Horse, and is by 2 Cute Ink, coloured with Promarkers.
The pretty papers are by Doodlebug (Hello Sunshine)

Other supplies used:
Stampin Up eyelet border punch; Dienamics By The Letter dies; daisy punches; & ash leaf punch.

Thank you for looking. xx
