To honor the memory of Sharron, we as a team decided to do this special blog hop where we would all make a friendship card and share a memory or two of how Sharron touched our life. I'm the newest member of the team and have only been on the team for a little over a year. I did however guest on the team quite a few times and got to know Sharron that way before I ever joined the team. Sharron ALWAYS commented on my cards and made sure I felt welcomed and a part of the team, and that definitely continued once I became a member. I was also lucky enough to have met Sharron in person 2 years ago when a group of us traveled to Kansas and the Whatever Craft House in Wichita where Sharron lived. I knew of Sharron at that point only from commenting on each others blogs, and have to admit I was a little bit nervous about meeting her because I tend to be a little quiet when I don't know someone. Silly me! It was no different than meeting the other 5 gals for the first time at the Craft House...we were instant friends and it was no different with Sharron! I think stampers connect on a different level than other people...it's just always instant friendship!! And on top of that, Sharron was a talker. And I do mean a TALKER!! I wouldn't have had to said a word (but I did) as Sharron talked and talked and talked!! Sharron loved animals of ALL types and had so much to say about her volunteer work with them and her pets...and it showed in her cards that she loved animals too as there was always some type of cute critter featured on them. Because of that love for animals, I had to make a critter card in memory of Sharron. I love all the cute critter stamps out there and have quite a few (well ok, maybe more than a few!), but had to choose this racoon image from SU! Many of you may be wondering why I would choose such a destructive little critter, but I just love their faces...they always look happy to me and that's how I want to remember Sharron!
All my supplies on this card are SU! from the DSP Feels Like Frost, the Woodland EF, and the stamp set Special Someone.
I think this little guy would have made Sharron smile, and that's how I want to remember her...smiling and friendly to everyone! Sharron was a gem and will be missed by so many...her hubby Harry and children, and so many in the stamping community! I praise God that Sharron is healthy now and probably talking everyone's ear off and smiling the whole time too! God bless Sharron!
