Mum.....

Brenda's funeral was a lovely celebration of her life. The church was so packed the doors could not be closed and people were standing in every space available.
Beautiful tributes were read by all the family and Lewis had written a poem which Eleanor and he read verse for verse.....I was so proud of them and everyone was in awe of their 'Northern accent' and how well they read aloud.

There wasn't a dry eye in the whole church and everyone held and shared some lovely memories.....it was a long tough day but I'm sure Brenda would've been happy if she was looking down on us all.

I made this card last week for Brenda which was put onto the flowers.......





Card stock - Stampin' Up
Butterflies - Martha Stewart Punch
Letters - Crosscuts die cutters
Ribbon - Gift wrap ribbon from Phoenix Trading

Thank you again to all my lovely blogging friends for your kind words and support.

  3. I'm certain Brenda was looking down on you all as proud as punch. She was obviously well loved by everyone as shown by the packed church. She will love her card...the butterflies are lovely and perfect for her card. xx
