RIP my dear friend

I am a little sad today ................ an old friend has passed away.  Sue had battled cancer for many years and had such a great positive attitude, but 52 is far too young.

Sue & Cathy

Sue, Alan & Cathy

Our old 'gang'
We were quite the gang in our younger years.  I first met Sue in about '74 and we shared a flat in '78 - then as adults, we went our separate ways.   We caught up again in 2006 for another friend's birthday and kept in touch for a little while, but then life got in the way again.

I have so many fond memories of our teenage years together and I am so sad that I didn't keep in touch more often and give her a quick call when I thought about her - which was often - just to say hello  :(

It was really strange, as I was thinking about her on Wednesday ...... I was tidying up my sewing room and came across the "Bean Bag Pal' she gave me for my 18th birthday

Note to self :  make that phone call when you think about it, don't put it off!

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.

Happy Birthday, Mum

Today would have been your 79th Birthday
Dad, my BFF Olga and Mum, New Year's Eve 1993
Memory is a lovely lane, Where hearts are ever true, 
A lane I so often travel down, Because it leads to you.

Sadly missed along life's way,
Quietly remembered every day,
No longer in our life to share,
But in our hearts she's always there.

Miss you, Mum

Now onto my card.

I have been attempting to sort through my stash in an endeavour to use up some older supplies.  These sweet metal/mesh embellishments have been in my stash since I first started cardmaking - around 2008.  The lovely mulberry paper is beautiful to work with and is now in short supply.  The cardstock is Bazzill Basics and the most gorgeous colour of burgundy.
