"Today i have heard of the passing of one of our HM challenge participants. All of the team including myself wanted to do a tribute or something in honour of Joanne. As Carolyn has said on her blog.........'Heaven has gained the sweetest and most loving of Angels. She spread love not only through her cards, but through her beautiful blog posts and the comments she left behind. I will miss her greatly!!!'. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joanne's family and friends at this sad time. xxx
This weeks challenge is in memory of Joanne and we hope as many of you as possible will be able to join in.
Our challenge this week is :~ A Sketch and a kind thought!!
With this sketch you can flip it, shrink it, rotate it, twist it etc but you MUST be able to see the original sketch in your work.
The kind thought..........The Johnson family has requested the following on Joannes blog...........Joanne spread much joy through her card making. If you would like to do something in memory of her, we are sure she would like you to send a card to someone in need.
Please make your card based on the sketch and send it to someone in need. The DT had already made there cards before we heard this sad news therefore we will all be joining in and sending a card to someone in need."
I was very sorry indeed to read about Joanne and although I didn't know her, I noticed that she was always the first one to congratulate every winner of the challenges and always had something very lovely to say. My heart and thoughts go out to her family at this time.
For my card this week in the guest DT spot I've flipped the sketch round to suit the shape of the Dragon flying stamp that I've used. I used quite a lot of glitter on the flowers, some on the dragonfly wings and also shimmery H20 paint but it isn't showing up much in the photograph.

Paper: SEI, Coredinations, pale blue and green pearlescent card.
Colouring: Promarkers, H20s, clear sparkle gel pen, black marker, Versafine blue lagoon
