White Rabbit??????

I’m late, I’m late …….

… so more like a  white rabbit than a pink piggy today!!!

But late or not I hope you are all OK and that you had a great weekend and firstly to all our sisters and brothers in America, I was thinking of you all yesterday – more in a sec.

Well this should have been on here on Friday but events over took me. Never mind, we’re here now and it’s actually my card for this week’s Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge which this week is a sketch by our Bev which I flipped ….

… like this!!

I used this sweet Tilda (Santa’s Little Helper which you can get from Simon Says Stamp )  and coloured her with these Copics -

E000, E00, E21, R11, R20 (skin), E41, E42, E50 (hair), R17, R27, R89

plus a dashing of polychromos and I have to say that IRL, the shading doesn't look patchy like it does on here (honestly!!)

All the papers are Pink Petticoat

I made a rolled rose and added some Wild Orchid Crafts holly leaves and also a double border made with the old faithful  Tilda Lace Die as well :)

So that’s the card done :)

Yesterday brought back a lot of awful memories I’m sure for a lot of people and especially our friends in the US and Richard and I were talking about how in some respects it seems like longer than 10 years but in other it doesn’t seem like 5 minutes. It’s an iconic moment in our history and we all remember where we were when it happened.

We watched it live as I worked from the office back then and somebody had gotten a phone call from home to tell them what had happened and for us to switch on the news.  I’m not 100% sure now but  I don’t think the second plane had hit when we first switched on. I still cannot comprehend the unspeakable act of pure evil that we saw that day. It was like something out of Independence Day except this was real.  And how do you go back to your desk and try to work after witnessing  the deaths of so many people?  You cannot and I felt sick to my stomach for a long time after. I don't know how the good people of New York managed to pick themselves up after it but to their great credit, they did.

I will go there one day and pay my respects in person for sure.

See you tomoz and hopefully I’ll be on time!!!!

Hugs to all xxx
