|A Vase of flowers for Cherie|
I was so shocked to hear that Cherie, who often came to my classes and had booked to be with us on Sunday, sadly passed away last week after the aggressive return of her illness. I'd met Victor, her husband about three weeks ago when he called to pick up the last kit for the class Cherie had booked but missed due to treatment. On Sunday, Victor asked if I would complete the two projects for him that Cherie would have made, and could I make the roses a specific colour. So I've put my to do list on hold for the last couple of days and made the vase of flowers above, just like the ones in the picture, using buttercup card stock, red and orange pan pastels and the Tattered Florals die. I've also completed the Come Away with Me A5 Box with drawer below and am taking them over and to Daisy's tomorrow for Victor to collect. It was so sad making these projects and my thoughts were with Victor and his family while I crafted away.
Cherie, I will always remember your excitement after spending a day at the Windmill Hotel with Tim Holtz last year and the fabulous tag album you made and shared with us. xx
