Bright & Cheerful Colours at CDM

A very good morning my dear friends, well a new Challenge at Cute Daisy May has been choosen by myself, Bright & Cheerful Colours, which is another tribute to my Dad who would have celebrated his 75th birthday today (so if Elvis can be celebrated for his songs, my Dad, also has to have fame, for his Painting and Decorating), I asked the talented Linnie to come up with a Wee Boy with a Paint Pot and she did this for me, so thank you Linnie, if you want to own him he is Sheet 151 in the Cute Daisy May shop.....I used all the colours of the Rainbow, as there was one shining on the day off his funeral and Jenny said "Grandad is Painting the Sky" so we love Rainbows in our family...and this card will sit on our mantlepiece for him today, along with Kenny's 18th birthday cards, as he and his grandad always had a joint celebration....so I am sure in this depressing time off snow and rain, you will love to make a card with Bright and Cheerful Colours for our challenge this week, and don't forget there is a chance to win a sheet of Linnies awesome designs.....

This is a beautiful tribute to your Dad Avril, a gorgeous card. It is just lovely to have a symbol of our loved one's, your Dad's being a rainbow. My Mum's is the brightest star in the sky. I remember when we were driving home in the early hours from the Hospice after Mum passed there was one star in the sky which was the brightest star i have ever seen & now every clear night we look out & it is still there & is the brightest star in the sky.
It is so nice to have these symbols which make us always know that our loved one's are always around us.
Hugs Clare xxx
