Flowers for You

Hi Everyone,

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post.  After many wonderful years as part of Sassy Cheryl Stamps I have made the hard decision to step down from this team.
It is not a decision that I have made lightly and have shed many tears over making it.
I would like to say a huge Thank you to Cheryl for allowing me on this wonderful journey and I wish you all the very best in the future.

While watching movies, I got to colour.
