Sharing...

hello like I told you in my last email I have something special to share with you. This is an email i have received from Alison a lovely lady and a customer partial to some SU stash. This is what she sent me

Hi Monica,
I just wanted to share with you a card I made yesterday to send to my sister using the All in the Family set and accessories.....I had such fun making it!!!
Last Monday was my hubby's and I's 18th Wedding Anniversary and also my brother in laws birthday and my niece's boyfriends birthday!!!

All my family met down at my sisters for the day....the first time in 2 years we have all been together....17 humans and 1 dog Benji !!!!

It was quite a challenge trying to get the people grouped and I had to try masking some of them....adding the glasses was even harder!!!

I used the heart from the 'send with love' stamp that came with my sale-a-bration set.

My sixteen year old son Alex, laughed when he saw the card trying to work out who was who, and I have called in my daughter, India's skills in photographing the card to send to you!..

Hope it makes you smile

And here is the card



Not only it made me smile but it nearly made me cry. Having a large family( mum is one of 5 and dad one of 11, uhu gran and grandma had no telly) I know first hand how wonderful and special family reunions are, and of course living 2000 miles apart from your loved ones makes it even harder to get together. I adore this card and is one I am planning on recreating myself one day including all my family members. Thank you so much Alison for sharing this with me and for allowing me to share it with all my readers, I think is wonderful and it just shows that no amount of shop bought cards will ever be as special as a hand made one. This creation is one I am sure will be kept forever.

ps how cute is little Benji? he hee

And this is what I have been doing, preparing little surprises for all our class participants. I loved posting all those white envies stamped with the sweet Fabulous Friend stamp from the Oval all set. I am soo excited we only have 2 DAYS LEFT!!!!! I shot the welcome video and OMG!! It took me like forever I was getting out of my mind with having to retake parts over and over again, and then you know when you get interrupted so many times that hysteria starts to set in? Well it happen and I ended up adding the bloopers at the end for a larf. Oh and I look rough, very rough even though I had more makeup than Coco the clown on, hee hee never mind I am sure people wont mind it, the projects are looking good so that s what matters. I will see you soon hugs M xxx
