Those of you who regularly stop by the challenge blogs may have come across the beautiful work of Lisa Tyrell. Her blog http://pinkylisasinkycrafts.blogspot.co.uk/ is where she shares her cards. Unfortunately Lisa has been suffering some health problems over the last couple of months and has been in and out of hospital a few times. She’s missing being part of her Design Teams as much as we are missing having her around to chat to.
Today’s blog hop is our way of showing her that we wish her all the best, and that even though she isn’t around much at the moment, she is always in our thoughts. We are all fortunate enough to work alongside her on various teams and consider her a great friend. If you are following the hop from the beginning you should have arrived here from Zoe’s blog and your next stop will be Bettina.
I wanted to make a card that shows Lisa what I think of, when I think of her! She’s such a generous natured and thoughtful person with a wicked sense of humour. She’s supportive in her comments, intelligent and organised, meticulous in the detail of her creations – a perfectionist!
So, I needed something wonderfully beautiful with a hint of a dark side….something complex and technically difficult (because she will appreciate the hard work!)…..and something that I could add some pink to because that is her favourite colour!……so I went to Aurora Wings and found Woman With Masquerade Owl Mask in Lily Garden (available here).
I coloured the image with my Promarkers and added some highlights with a white gel pen. The backing paper is from DCWV All Dressed Up stack and the sentiment stamp is from StampAttack.
THIS IS FOR YOU LISA, MY BESTEST FB BUDDY – TAKE CARE, GET WELL SOON AND WE’LL ALL BE WAITING FOR YOU WHEN YOU COME BACK!
We would love to read your comments today but even if you cannot comment on all our blogs, please try and make time to stop by Lisa’s blog at the end of the list and leave a bit of love on her most recent post – let her know that you are thinking of her xxx
