My Best Friend

I don't normally write personal stuff on my blog, but this week was my Birthday and in the post came the most beautiful card, made by an amazing Women.

This is the Women who inspired me to get back into card making last year, when she showed me her Promarkers and some great stamps by LOTV.

She is an avid card maker like myself, but gets very little time to indulge at the moment, so i was delighted to receive such a beautiful card from her.

Image and Sentiment - LOTV
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts

That women is my  SISTER 

She is the most amazing person I know.

She is Funny 

She is Beautiful

She is my Best Friend

She is a mother to two gorgeous boys, one of which is on the Autistic Spectrum, so most days throw up a challenge of some sort.  She his campaigned tirelessly for the last few years to get this disorder, firstly recognised and then to get him the help and understanding he needs in school.  Whilst doing this she is also a full time teaching assistant with special needs Children, not an easy job.

Then at the end of last year she started to study for a University Diploma in Child Care and Autism.

Boy she is an inspiration.  Don't get me wrong we have had our fall outs and rows, like all Sisters, but at the end of the day, she is the one I look to for advice, help and inspiration and she is always willing to give - even if I don't always like the advice, she tells it to me straight and I thank her for that.

So this is a little post for you chick

I think you are amazing and I love you to pieces.
You Rock Sis xxx

I don't know if blogging protocol allows this but I would love to enter her card in the following Challenges for her:-

CCE Stampers - Things with Wings
My Heart Pieces - Angels or Fairies
Creative Moments - Things with Wings
Dream Valley Challenges - Happy Birthday

  4. What a totally beautiful card! Your sister sounds awesome! I really hate to say, though, that we can't accept it for Dream Valley Challenges, because (unless the card is by a child) we expect an entrant to submit their own work. Please encourage your sister to enter the challenge with this fabulous card!

    I'm so sorry!
