We are posting our Colour Hues Challenge #72 a day early as part of a very special hop held in memory of our dear friend, fellow card maker and Design Team member, Lindsey Martin-Penny, who sadly passed away last year from a rare and aggressive form of Ovarian Cancer.
No words can express how deeply I miss her every. single. day. She was a beacon of light in my life; one who supported, encouraged, shared (her book recommendations and recipes were the best!) and, perhaps above all else, made me laugh. Her wit, sense of humour and all-around friendship were daily highlights. As for her crafting skills? Only awe-mazing. I'm lucky to have several of her fabulous cards in my home; a very special collection, indeed.
Anyway...the tears are falling. My red-and-purple card features my current obsession: Tim Holtz's Artsy leaves paired with the Texture Fades Layered Dots embossing folder. In real life, the card is quite pretty, especially with the shine of the gold leaf veins. I know Lindsey would love this set as much as I do. Because she was always wonderful in making/sending birthday cards to friends and family, near and far, that's the route I went, too.
Next on the hop is the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. Please be sure to leave a comment along your hopping journey where you'll learn more about Lindsey’s life, her loves and her legacy.
You can find the hop list and details at Emily Leiphart’s blog.
Thank you for hopping with us. We're looking forward to seeing what you make for this challenge using Lindsey’s favorite colors.
The challenge will be open until September 28th @ 9 AM EST!
