L is for Lindsey.

The Sisters wanted to honour our sweet, lovely Lindsey that recently lost her battle with and aggressive form of Ovarian cancer, it will be a very difficult post for me today. Lindsey was a fabulous crafter, her CAS cards were awesome, the stenciled cards were great and loved to make cards with Cats on them but always gave equal billing to Dogs. When choosing a card that inspired me I remembered one that I was particularly in awe of and it was a pair of CAS cards I saw on Addicted to Stamps and More challenge blog. Here was my inspiration.

I was so impressed with the blending for card 1, and the CAS of both. So here is my rendition of the cards using one of her favourite colours.

I made the first background and didn't like the pink/plum colour but looks fined behind the diecut white layer. The diecut was used on the second all shades of purple card. 

Closer look at card 1, I thought the sentiment appropriate.

Partially finished inside using scraps cut from the front layer.

Using the off cut of the flower die and the love as a peek-a-boo effect. I rounded the corners with the corner chomper and layered it o Blue, then on a white base. 

I would like to add this to two Lindsey tributes:

Seize the Birthday ~~ Special Tribute to Lindsey 


Color Hues ~~ #46 A special tribute to Lindsey
these were her colour pick.

I chose Clean and Simple as it is something I rarely do I felt this was how I could honour Lindsey to the fullest as I was always in AWE of her designs. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will join us at The Sisterhood Of Snarky Stampers for L is for Lindsey,

Here are a few of her favorite things:
