Our very last hero of WW1 on this earth has just passed away, and i would like to say you will never be forgotten, and thankyou..............Claude Stanley Choules, reached the ripe old age of 110years old and has passed away in his nursing home in Perth, Western Australia..........Born in Pershore, Worcestershire, U.K.. Claude at the young age of only 18 fought for his country within the Royal Navy aboard HMS Revenge. Known to his friends as "Chuckles" Claude fought to protect our country and kept us safe.  R.I.P Chuckles, you can now reunite with all your well missed friends.........bless you x

Hey there crafters,
Well this is a lot of cards for me to be making in such a short space of time, i don't normally make so many cards one after the other and jewellery made too!!?! well all i can say is enjoy it Vick whilst you can cause the old crafters block will soon kick in, it always does! Thats when i will do some fusion painting as its the only thing i do where i don't have to have my mojo! also, John bought me some soft oil paints last year and i must admit i havent picked them up yet, i want to teach myself oil painting florals, not one-stroke folk painting like fusion is, (as that is acrylics) but 'proper' oil painting, i used to paint landscapes in harder oils however, the long brush strokes made my weak wrists swell so i had to stop doing something i loved, so small strokes and florals it is, i must find the tutorial book John bought me to teach myself!
Anyway, enough waffle, here is my card and i am entering it into the following challenges (Anything Goes) (Girl's Birthday Card) (Anything Goes) (Use something that starts with a 'C') so i have used 'Cherry Blossoms'

Hope you like it, thanks for looking and i would love it if you could leave a comment! Hugs Vick xxxxx
