A Strange Day of Mixed Emotions

Gosh today has been so strange. I have been down then up then down. Today is my late baby sisters birthday she would have been 41 no age to die. Was feeling a bit low dont like going to her grave but decided today i would go. Then I looked out the window and my neighbour was moving didnt realise it was today lovely lady but reminded me that my house still wasnt sold. Not long before the mortgage people will be knocking. Still really happy for her as things havent been the best and it will be a new start for her. So quickly made her a card and delivered it. Left feeling much happier. Then got a phone call saying we had a offer from some people and would i accept. Lol. I just said " oh goodies yes please". So i am happy and preying it goes through this time but will be sad as we have been here 25 years come july. So all in all a very strange and eventful day. Just wanted to share with someone hope your day has been a good one. Lots of viewings tomorrow for new properties.
Thanks for reading. xx

Creative Inspirtations Challenge 48 - Say It In Sepia

Now SEpia is the theme this week over at Creative Inspirations now it isnt as bad as it sounds and i looked up the definition for sepia and according to wikipeda Sepia is a dark brown-grey color, named after the rich brown pigment derived from the ink sac of the common cuttlefish Sepia. Well i think tones of reddish brown is what i was thinking of. It isnt as bad as i was thinking once you get started and if you need any hints or inspirations just check out the teams amazing projects they have amazed me.

I have used this image as sepia always makes me think of old pictures and this image reminds me of my gran sadly she left us aged 95 way back in 1982 not a bad innings.Papers are from K&Co and flowers from my stash. Pearls are a mixture of string pearls and half pearls. Lace is recycled. Leaf is a woodware punch. I have distressed the papers and lightly inked with dye based inks. Distress inks on my wish list i think. Image coloured with promarkers and of course image by Mo.
