Canvas and Garage Sale

This is a canvas I made late last year, as a tribute to the relationship my parents had, before my mother passed in June. Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love my Mum and Dad....They have been married for 42 years......and sadly my Dad is on his own now.....Except for us....He has a loving family and 4 grandchildren to keep him busy. My brother and I will look after him, and his GKs will keep him busy !!!! This was the first canvas I tried...and I loved making it !!!!

I picked up many a bargain at the garage sale at S2D4.....And I'm a girl who LOVES a bargain.......I got some stamps, a sticker maker (Xyron) some beautiful lace, clear alphas, some Heidi Swap pink cards (A,J,Q,K etc) chipboard alphas (never have enough of them) an envelope stencil and more.....and only spent $50.00.
Like I said....I just love a bargain !!!!

My 6year old was sick this weekend with a stomach virus, so I've spent a few hours washing mountains of bedding....However....all is well now and I'm off to put everyone in bed......

Peace at last !!!!!

    Glad you picked up some great bargains at the garage sale - I didn't make it unfortunately, much as I would have liked to have gone - next time!
