GO FOR GREECE TRAINING GROUP - BLOG HOP - AUGUST 2018

Image
Hello and Welcome to my blog. Today I am joining this group for the first time for a blog hop. I will not be going to Greece as I am such a long long way from earning what is required for this luxurious reward.  But that’s okay, as I have learned so much from you all during the year, I feel I am rich with inspiration, knowledge and friendship across the world. 
My creation today is an “ Out of the Square” “Away from my Comfort Zone” and this is because of you here in this Go for Greece Training Group 












Why is this out of my comfort zone? I have used the beautiful Stampi, Blends to colour the gorgeous Flowers,Used a totally different colour combination than I normally us, The amount of Wink of Stella on the card and then the shape to the card is totally new to me.  I actually made this card with scraps of Cardstock which was sitting on my desk.
It’s such a shame we cannot keep this limited edition bundle as it has been so popular with many demonstrators here in Australia and around the…

Today's card is a Sympathy Card. 
Death takes us all sometime, There is a day that we are born into this world, and there is a day when we leave this world.
I am not going to give a Religious Speech, I am very religious and I have my beliefs. I honour all other religions as I would like them do that for me also. I find them all very fascinating, and the most I love of Religion is the Praise of Love, Caring, Respect and Song. 
It is such a sad time in all our lives when a loved one passes away…
