Just Married Bears...

Hello all...
I guess we are all pretty much 'snowed under' by the weather this weekend.
I drove to school yesterday in a beginnings of the flurry...had a hot chocolate in the staffroom and then watched as it literally turned into a blizzard.
School Closed and I came back home very slowly.

It has ended a very emotional week for me as one of my friends passed away quite suddenly, aged only 39, last Saturday night.
She had health issues from birth but she was the happiest, funniest, cheekiest, and most lovely, caring person I have ever known.

She is the lovely smiley lady I have cut in half on the far left...on one of our weekend food nights!
Our Nights out and In will never be the same without her!
RIP Darling Verity 

On a lighter note...
The new Wild Rose Studio Love and Marriage stamps and papers have arrived in my house...

Coloured with Promarkers...this cute Teddy couple are off on honeymoon.
 I used matt silver card and a Sizzix frame die around the image.

 Layered flower with a pink pearl centre...

 Pink Bow, with a silver heart charm and a recycled with love mini tag.
Pink ribbon and lace just showing...

 Some challenges...
I love Promarkers...Layers
Penny Paper Challenge...Teddy Bears
Crafty Ribbons...Love/Romance/Anniversary
4 Craft Chicks...Pearls, Pearls, Pearls
Willow Sketchie...Cute

Have fun in the snow.
Stay safe and warm!

I'll be back soon..
